The 2011 Capital Renewal projects updated and improved Prairie View A&M University’s campus HVAC systems, electrical systems, streets, and buildings, including the installation of fire alarm and sprinkler systems. Many of the University’s facilities and infrastructure were more than 25 years old and in need of frequent repairs. The 2011 Capital Renewal Plan was a high priority measure to improve and upgrade older campus facilities and infrastructure to efficiently meet current and future utility needs. Additionally, the program significantly reduced deferred maintenance and energy costs for the University.
In particular, the scope included the replacement of a 1,000 BHP boiler, upgrades to utility tunnels, the replacement of 36 air handlers in Billy Nicks Field House, the replacement of electrical distribution feeders, the replacement of air handlers in Anderson and Evans Halls, and the replacement of DDC system in Farrell Hall. It also included new fire sprinklers in Billy Nicks Field House, Wilson/Gilchrist Complex, W.R. Banks, Harrington, Science, Hobard Taylor, Delco and SR Collins, as well as fire alarm systems in Billy Nicks, Jesse Drew, Anderson, Wilson, Delco and SR Collins, along with road repairs to O’Bannon Hall.
The work was broken into multiple packages to take advantage of time during school breaks. Our team incorporated careful coordination and phasing into the design to allow the facilities to remain operational during construction.
