Sarasota Middle School: Sarasota, Florida


Sarasota Middle School is a 180,000 square foot middle school located in Sarasota County.  The project scope includes the design and construction administration for the complete HVAC system replacement and the renovation of all affected spaces.  HVAC improvements include the conversion of the existing centrifugal and screw compressor chillers to air-cooled screw chillers at the energy plant.  Air side improvements include the replacement of Variable Air Volume systems with multi-zone units with separate coils for better humidity control. Architectural improvements include the design of new HVAC mezzanines in each of the classroom buildings and new wall, floor and ceiling finishes throughout the campus. This project was completed in phases to allow the School to remain operational during the construction.
