The University of Texas – Winship Drama Building HVAC & Electrical Renewal (Phase II)

Originally constructed in 1961, F. Loren Winship Drama Building is home to the UT Department of Theater and Dance. MEP Engineering, Inc. served as the Prime Professional Service Provider on this project for both the first and second phase of the HVAC and electrical renewal. Phase two’s scope of work included replacement of three air handling units, as well as the existing chilled water piping, steam piping, and piping appurtenances, which were reconfigured based on the new unit structure. MEP also replaced four sump pumps, the domestic hot water generator and associated appurtenances, and revised the ventilation for the electrical room. Additional scope of work included removal and replacement of electrical service, five various exhaust fans, branch circuit panels, disconnects, starters, VFDs, and branch circuit wiring. Also lighting improvements were designed where needed for maintenance conditions.  Phase 1 of this project was previously completed in 2015.  Phase 3 of this project was completed in September 2018.
