Jackson Federal Building
The Jackson Federal Building Renovation is an ARRA funded project specifically intended to improve efficiency of the building, thereby reducing energy use by approximately 30%. The building will utilize newer technology and more energy efficient equipment to achieve this desired outcome. The existing control system will also be upgraded to newer technology. Perimeter walls will receive additional insulation in order to reduce heating/cooling loads, and the lighting system will capture natural day-lighting as an additional means to save energy.
The building will remain occupied throughout construction, requiring intricate scheduling and coordination between all trades. In addition, trades are scheduled to work two 10-hour shifts each day, Monday through Thursday, in order to meet the fast-paced schedule.
This MEP project is mechanical-intensive, with McKinstry’s contract portion equating to half of the entire project value. Currently, construction is ahead of schedule.
This project has targeted LEED-EB Silver certification.
