J.F. White was contracted by Boston Public Facilities as the Mechanical General Contractor to upgrade and modernize the mechanical room for West Roxbury High School.

The project entailed removing the existing Hot Water and Chilled Water Supply/Return equipment and piping from the mechanical room and replacing the components. Interesting aspects of this project included close coordination with the owner to avoid disrupting school activities and the rigging required to access the mechanical room which was located on the roof.

J.F. White self performed the major mechanical work while utilizing subcontractors for the ductwork, plumbing, insulation, ATC and electrical scopes of work.

This project was completed on time with minimal impact to the owner.
