Kipp Charter Primary & Middle School

Building Fit-out

KIPP School is a charter school, serving grades 1 through 6. KIPP schools are tuition-free schools that
operate independently of the city Department of Education. The project was executed as a complete
fit-out of a 6-story building and approximately 34,240 GSF. Space features include cafeteria, exercise
room, classrooms, computer rooms, specialized laboratory classrooms, and administrative areas.

DM Engineers performed the commissioning of all the Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) disciplines of the project. Equipment commissioned include building exhausts fans, electric fine tube radiators, condensate pumps, electric duct heaters, air Conditioning Units (VRF), dedicated outdoor air conditioning unit (DOA), Computer Room Air Conditioning Units, heat recovery boxes, lighting and lighting controls, electrical panels, domestic water system, sewage system and building autonomation.

DM Engineers was brought on-board prior to the construction phase and was able to work with the project team to execute the work within 6 months as planned. DM Engineers developed the commissioning plan, pre-functional and functional checklists. During the construction, our team established construction checklists and pre-functional and functional testing forms, verified equipment installation to conform design specifications, documented construction issues utilizing Facility Grid Software and witnessed hydrostatic tests and duct leakage tests. During the turn over phase, DM endured the training execution, and required project documentation was delivered as required by the project owner.
