INTRODUCTION TO EDUCATIONAL WORK: Comfortable, cost effective classroom environments are critical to the educational process. Proper heating, ventilation, and lighting provide an atmosphere for alert and focused students. W感惹 designs affordable, energy efficient systems for both new and existing classroom buildings. Our project managers and engineers will assist the school district to meet NYS Education Department (SED) standards, insuring prompt SED approval and a successful project.

Recent projects include: Northeastern Clinton Central School District ($4.2 Million expansion), Lake George Central School District ($6.1 Million expansion and upgrade), Northern Adirondack Central School District ($8.2 Million expansion and upgrade) and Granville Central School ($17.3 Million expansion and renovation).

Additional Photographs and descriptions of these projects will be added at a later time.

The boilers at the Greenwich High School (right) required fast track replacement while the school was in session. W感惹 provided a "summer" domestic hot water heater to meet the kitchen and locker room needs while the full replacement took place under a performance contract. Work also included lighting upgrades in the three classroom buildings and bus garage, replacement of four cast iron sectional boilers in the Middle School, and entrance vestibules design.

The conversion from electric-to-oil fired hydronic heat (oil tank pictured left) at the Middleburgh Elementary School combined with a lighting retrofit program provided enough energy savings to offset the bond payments for an extensive reconstruction program, including new plumbing systems, structural reinforcement, renovations to bathrooms, and new carpets.

W感惹 designed the mechanical/electrical/civil systems for the new marquee Maple Avenue Middle School in Saratoga Springs. The hydronic heating system combines gas-fired condensing boilers with over 90% seasonal efficiency and a conventional oil-fired cast iron sectional boiler. The standby oil boiler allows the school to capitalize on low cost interruptible "well head" natural gas rates

Lighting at the Maple Avenue School took into account eye comfort and energy efficiency. The computer lab (pictured left) has low glare parabolic lenses in the efficient recessed fluorescent lighting. W感惹 also assists schools with computer networking, uninterruptible power, and other communications applications.

Woodworking and other shops present special ventilation and power requirements. This Maple Ave. School dust collector, pictured right, is a re-circulating type, complete with filters and a fire detection system.

The formerly all electric Lake George Elementary School's new high efficiency condensing boilers (pictured left), all the piping, and unit ventilator conversions were accomplished while school was in session, immediately producing large energy savings. The boiler room and main runouts were installed quickly and the main circulating loop made operational. The contractor in close coordination with W感惹 and the school then converted the heating units in each classroom one by one, such that no space was ever without heat.
