Onyx Equities, LLC is a leading real estate investment and property services firm specializing in acquiring, managing, and repositioning commercial properties. EVCO Mechanical provided a complete ventilation system replacement for one of their commercial office communities in Paramus, NJ.
This project was motivated by a need to update the old and original units to achieve higher energy efficiency, improved air quality, and superior reliability. The existing ventilation systems were over forty years old, and their associated condensing units had been suffering from compressor failures. Onyx worked with Robert Director Associates (RDA) to develop a replacement system design, and EVCO was chosen out of a competitive bid to perform the project.
A project such as this requires a lot of advanced work. Naturally, there is a tremendous amount of planning needed and time to review the equipment sizing, double-check measurements, coordinate equipment delivery, and plan the work to have minimum impact on building occupants. EVCO worked closely with RDA to review equipment selections and verify field conditions while coordinating every step of the project with Onyx to ensure their tenants’ safety and comfort.
“This type of project is our bread and butter work. Big, complicated, lots of moving parts, months of planning; this is where EVCO really excels.”
What you see here today actually started weeks ago. We began mobilizing the equipment in the parking lot last week. The electrical infrastructure for the new equipment was set in place a month in advance. The crane was set up yesterday, ahead of schedule, for smooth operations today. With the equipment staged ahead of time on-site and in order of installation, we met with the manufacturer days ago to check all of the pieces and verify their readiness for installation.
