Good Samaritan: Bonell Energy Conservation- Greeley, CO
This project involved the replacement of the entire mechanical system in a fully occupied three-story skilled nursing facility, a seven-story independent living facility and a single-story assisted living facility all located on the Bonell Good Samaritan Campus in Greeley. The new HVAC system is a four-pipe system consisting of air-cooled chiller, high efficiency boilers, circulating pumps, piping and terminal fan coil units. Corridor ceilings were also removed and replaced to allow for the installation of new HVAC piping and electrical conduits. Miscellaneous patching and repairs to damaged surfaces were done in each room after the installation of the new HVAC system. The campus was at full capacity during construction and there was no space to relocate residents for extended periods of time. We worked closely with Belford Waktins, the Good Samaritan Society, and the Bonell staff members during preconstruction and construction to coordinate construction activities in order to minimize disruptions to residents and staff. During the day, we moved a limited number of residents out of their rooms but made sure that they were able to return to their rooms every evening.
