Ft. Leavenworth Command and General Staff College

This 430,000-sq. ft. Office and Classroom building was constructed for the purpose of high-level military training for leaders of all branches of the U.S. military and our allies. The facility replaces an aging building which is use by all branches of the military and is heated and cooled using a Heat Pump system. There are approximately 430 heat pump units ranging in size from 1-ton to 5-tons. Condenser water for the units is provided by a cooling tower. There are two (2) Heat Recovery Units and one (1) Air Handling unit. These units are used in the lecture hall and auditorium. Make-up air handling units are used for air quality.


Our responsibility included installation of all plumbing and HVAC mechanical systems, QC/QA of all mechanical systems including plumbing, controls, mechanical insulation & duct work. Significant challenges included preparation of all the coordination drawings for all the mechanical and electrical equipment above the ceilings, as in most facilities there was more equipment than space. But with a lot of effort by a lot of people, the drawings and installation were completed on schedule and to the Corps of Engineers strict standards.


The project was nominated for an Outstanding Mechanical Installation Award (OMI).
