Kansas City, Kan. — EMCOR Services Fagan was recently presented the top award for “Outstanding Mechanical Installation” from the Kansas City Chapter of the MCA (Mechanical Contractors Association). The award was for Fagan’s HVAC installation at the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum in the “HVAC over $2M category”.
A leading mechanical contractor and provider of maintenance services throughout Kansas and western Missouri, the EMCOR Services Fagan is a subsidiary of EMCOR Group, Inc., a Fortune 500® leader in mechanical and electrical construction, industrial and energy infrastructure, and building services for a diverse range of businesses.
“We are extremely honored to be recognized by our peers for the work performed on the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum,” said Michael Crabtree, President of EMCOR Services Fagan. “The project presented a number of complex challenges, requiring innovative solutions.”
EMCOR Services Fagan was responsible for replacing two chillers and air handling units with dehumidification systems. Project challenges included the need to provide continuous chilled water and cooling comfort during the summer months, while keeping the humidity in the archive rooms at a stable level and maintaining full operations for the entire library during the installation.
“EMCOR Services Fagan was required to provide continuous chilled water throughout project’s first phase. We provided a 300 ton temporary air cooled chiller, hydronic pump and piping to existing building tie-in points to provide temporary chilled water,” stated Mr. Crabtree. “After temporary chiller startup and prove out, we removed the existing chillers and piping. Due to space constraints with path of travel for the new equipment, we designed and fabricated custom chiller barrel cradles to allow for the new equipment to be installed without demolition to the building.”
