Capital Projects

IPD provided MEP/FP engineering services to support a capital improvement project at Lafayette Central School District, Lafayette JR/SR High School, Grimshaw elementary School and the District Office/Bus Garage sites.

MEP scope of work included engineering for complete replacement of the High School boiler plant – fire tube boilers were replaced with new high efficiency condensing boilers, primary and secondary pumps, piping, controls and stainless steel chimney liner. Mechanical ventilation systems were added to comply with code and mitigate overheating in warm months.

The HVAC system was reworked for the renovation Main and Nurses office suites and large propeller type de-stratification fans we added to the Cafeteria for added comfort ad savings. The domestic water chlorine contact/storage system was replaced to meet NYS D.O.H requirements and various toilet renovations at the High School. Grimshaw Elementary received new central domestic water heaters. The Building Automation Systems (BAS) were expanded to accommodate all new boiler and HVAC equipment. At the District Office and Bus Garage, the steam boiler system was removed and replaced with a high efficiency split heating and cooling system. High efficiency gas fired unit heaters were added to service bays. 

Electrical upgrades included replacement of the High School’s main switchboard, LED lighting upgrades with automatic lighting controls, VOIP phone systems, IP based PA/clock systems, fire alarm upgrades, and various electrical panel replacement. High School Auditorium upgrades included new LED house lighting, theatrical lighting system, and sound/ media system. All High School exterior and site lighting was upgraded to LED and is controlled by building management system.
