The YMCA of Greater Houston, a private, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charity, is a leader in providing services that enrich the lives of children and families, offering early childhood and youth developmental programs, child care, health and wellness services, programs for seniors, job training and more, while offering need-based financial assistance with 37 local facilities.
G&W was called out by the YMCA to the MD Anderson facility located at 705 Calvacade for a no heating and cooling call on their large 17.5 ton gymnasium roof top package units. Upon inspection of the equipment it was determined that an electrical fire in the front units control panel had occurred, thus rendering the unit inoperable. This particular roof top unit was built and installed in 1988, making the needed parts obsolete.
G&W was asked by the YMCA to replace the two existing gymnasium units with new 20 ton roof top package units with electric heat. This also included fabrication of the needed custom roof curbs that unit units would set on and also serve as a supply side discharge duct, a 150 ton crane supplied by TNT Crane and Rigging Company, connecting the new units to the existing supply and return air ductwork on the roof, reconnect the electric and condensate drains all to City of Houston codes, reconnect the controls into the YMCA’s control system.
G&W replaced two outdated and underperforming units with brand new energy efficient equipment, stayed on budget and on time, and kept a great customer and their clients happy.
