Atlantic Constructors performed the design-assist and construction for piping, plumbing, and sheet metal on this new 264,000 SF Headquarters and 18,000 SF Band Building Facility on a 16-month construction schedule. This project was a Tier 3 Classification.

The construction consisted of a 1000-ton chilled water plant, 2800 GBM cooling tower, rooftop air handling units-150,000 CFM, fan coil units, and CRAC units. The hot water reheat system totaled 160,000 MBH. During design-assist services, ACI was able to work closely with the project team to maintain the budget and provide constructability input.
