Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Atlanta, GA
Holy Spirit Catholic Church decided to build a new, multi-level facility to meet the needs of their growing congregation. The client was seeking a new HVAC system that would serve the expansion and two existing buildings. The system would need to provide improved indoor air quality, provide thermal comfort for all occupants, and adhere to a fixed time frame of only a few months for all installations to be completed.
With a client relationship spanning over fifteen years, EMCOR Services Aircond was selected as the company of choice to design and install the new HVAC system for Holy Spirit Catholic Church. With faculty and students returning to school in just a few months, services were fast tracked. Construction of the chiller plant began in early spring and renovation of the preschool began the day after school ended for the summer months.
Aircond exceeded the client’s expectations by successfully completing the chiller plant installations on time and within budget. The HVAC system is designed to supply continuous fresh air to the buildings with enhanced overall air quality. The four-pipe system provides dehumidication in areas of high occupancy for increased occupant comfort.
Aircond’s scope of work included installing a chiller plant to accommodate the newly built facility and the existing sanctuary and preschool. The installations in the original buildings were possible due to the core of the newly installed HVAC system being a centralized chilled/hot water plant with a network of piping and air handling units. The furnished and installed HVAC system consisted of one modular chiller, two boilers, three cooling towers, eight pumps, ten air handling units, ten fan coil units, over twenty VAV boxes, exhaust fans, piping, ductwork, insulation, and HVAC controls. The HVAC control system monitors the indoor temperature from many points throughout the facility. The collaboration maintained between Holy Spirit Catholic Church, the designer, and GC helped to ensure smooth delivery of an HVAC system that met the client’s needs, desired schedule, and budget.
Holy Spirit Catholic Church was established in Atlanta, GA, in 1964 from territory taken largely from the Cathedral of Christ the King Parish. The church body now includes over 1,900 households and serves countless more in the community through outreach programs. There is also a K-12 school associated with the church.
