Project Summary: Prairie Mechanical Corporation was selected by The Nebraska Medical Center as their Design-Assist mechanical contractor of choice for upgrading Clarkson Tower’s aging HVAC Infrastructure.  A multiphase project, the team is methodically working to replace approximately 500,000 CFM of air handling units in an operable hospital without interrupting or compromising patient care.  The Sub-Basement mechanical room requires that all air handling units are shipped in crates and field erected.  The first phase included a 75,000 CFM air handling unit and a hot water plant consisting of redundant steam heat exchangers and 600 GPM hot water pumps.  As the Construction Manager, Prairie Mechanical has sole responsibility for both the general construction and electrical scopes of work.
