Bureau Valley Wyanet Elementary School underwent a significant transformation as part of a broader district-wide bond referendum, which included three construction projects. The entire initiative was led by MCP, successfully guiding the 25+ member referendum committee.
Scope of Impact:
The project had a substantial impact on the majority of the existing school infrastructure. Recognizing the need for modernization, particular emphasis was placed on addressing the HVAC and electrical systems.
The existing mechanical systems were deemed inadequate and outdated, prompting a comprehensive overhaul. The project involved the installation of all-new mechanical rooftop units, ensuring optimal efficiency and functionality.
A major electrical upgrade was implemented, encompassing the installation of a new electrical service to meet the evolving needs of the school. This was a critical component in enhancing overall safety and energy efficiency.
To create a more conducive learning environment, extensive renovations were carried out, including new ceilings and lighting throughout the school. These updates not only improved aesthetics but also contributed to a more modern and comfortable atmosphere for students and staff.
MCP efficiently managed the project by overseeing two prime contractors. The coordination and supervision of both the HVAC and electrical upgrades were conducted seamlessly to ensure the successful execution of the entire project.
All work on Bureau Valley Wyanet Elementary School was strategically completed during the summer months, minimizing disruption to the academic calendar. This timeline was crucial to the project’s success, allowing for a swift and efficient implementation of the upgrades.
The strategic proximity of Wyanet to Bureau Valley High School, another project under MCP’s management, presented an opportunity for cost savings. By utilizing the same project team, comprised of a dedicated project manager and superintendent, MCP streamlined operations and maximized efficiency.
In a remarkable display of project management prowess, MCP concurrently handled the HVAC and Electrical Upgrade project at Walnut Elementary School, located fifteen miles from both Manlius and Wyanet. This dual-project approach, facilitated by the shared MCP team, exemplifies the efficiency and effectiveness of MCP’s comprehensive construction management capabilities.
The Bureau Valley Wyanet Elementary School project stands as a testament to MCP’s commitment to excellence, collaborative project management, and the successful execution of complex construction initiatives within educational institutions.
