Work is full swing for the work scheduled for the renovation work included in the life safety /mechanical update project that is occurring at Twin Ridge. The new chiller is up and running and is cooling the building nicely! Anticipated delivery dates for the new wall mounted fin tube units in all of the classrooms were accelerated slightly so the final heating work should be completed by the first day of school as well.

Work has started in earnest at Twin Ridge Elementary School on the updating of the existing building mechanical systems. With the building heating season over, the existing boilers have been shut down and removed from the building and the new boilers are currently being installed. The new boiler systems will take up less than half of the area of the existing boiler systems and will also provide a much higher efficiency to reduce energy consumption!
