Project summary:

The Lynde and Harry Bradley School of Technology and Trade is a progressive facility designed to promote Milwaukee Public Schools’ science and technology high school curriculum. In October of 2002 faculty and students moved into the new facility; the new building has been designed to provide flexibility for future technologies and curriculum updates. A significant portion of the facility’s flexibility comes from the exposed ductwork system running through the technology labs, and the HVAC equipment supporting these areas.

As a design-assist construction partner TOTAL Mechanical of Wisconsin volunteered to take the lead role in the coordination for the Lynde and Harry Bradley School of Technology and Trade. The design-assist process helped to identify building questions and installation conflicts prior to work crews beginning installation, and before the project schedule was negatively impacted.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley School of Technology and Trade is a fully air conditioned facility, with process and domestic hot water generated using City of Milwaukee distributed high pressure steam.

TOTAL Mechanical’s responsibilities for this project included coordinating over $1,500,000 worth of owner purchased equipment, materials, and services in addition to the HVAC contract work. From start to finish over 37,000 hours of labor were invested in fabrication and installation.

Project summary:

St. Joseph’s Outpatient Center is a 210,000 square foot, state-of-the-art ambulatory care center. The five-story building includes 60 office spaces for physicians along with a 5-story parking structure. In addition, four acres of land have been purchased north of the building in anticipation of future expansion.

TOTAL Mechanical acted as the primary coordinator for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing throughout the entire duration of the project. They successfully managed to stay on track with the challenging construction schedule. The on-site project management staff coordinated all equipment and material deliveries to ensure that heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems were operating for the finishing trades. TOTAL Mechanical also coordinated temperature control installation and had the entire building commissioned and owner training completed prior to owner occupancy.

TOTAL Mechanical installed 5.35 miles of piping, 700 valves, 3000 hangers, 20,000 pipe fittings and 170 tons of sheet metal ductwork. The crew size peaked at 50 mechanics. Cooperation among all involved resulted in the on-time completion for the ten month project.

The St. Joseph Outpatient Center is featured in the 2004 May issue of Wisconsin Builder as one of the Top 20 projects completed in Wisconsin for 2003. Hunzinger Construction also received Midwest Construction Magazine’s Award for 2003 Project of the Year in the Health Care Category for this project!
