SEI performed a limited renovation to Parkville High School which involved a total reconstruction of the existing building, systemic upgrades to HVAC and controls, a new curtainwall to enhance the exterior facade, as well as programmatic enhancements.
The main challenge of this phased while occupied project was maintaining the maximum number of students in the 3-story academic wing to minimize costs. In order renovate the wing as well as replace the HVAC and the exterior building envelope, construction phasing was determined based on the zoning on the HVAC system. The zone areas were from front to back of the building and incorporated all 3 stories. The 140 foot long academic wing was divided into three sections along its length for phasing purposes. One section was vacated for renovation; replacement of the curtainwall front and back; and replacement of the HVAC system on all three levels, while the other two sections were occupied for instruction.
