MEP/FP Engineering and Construction Administration

Edgewater High School Comprehensive

SGM Engineering provided full MEP/FP design for Edgewater High School Comprehensive Project. The project included 84,300 SF of renovations, 323,000 SF of new space, and a student capacity of 2,454 upon completion. The campus was expanded from 29 to 48 acres with the purchase of adjacent properties to accommodate the new buildings and facilitate phasing, which shortened the construction schedule and allowed school operations to continue uninterrupted. The new Edgewater High School consists of new classroom buildings and all new core facilities including a gym, cafeteria, auditorium, music suite and multi-story student commons. The 750-seat auditorium incorporates an LED based theater lighting system that integrates the first use of the new OCPS theatre standards.

Other technology features include Wi-Fi, sensor activated lighting controls, video surveillance, and a centrally controlled HVAC system that includes partial ice storage technology. All classrooms are fitted with computer controlled interactive smartboards and digital projectors as well as an audio enhancement system for improved learning. The Engineering, Science & Technology Magnet program spaces are fully prepared to support instruction in subjects ranging from web design and animation to computer aided design and engineering technology/testing. The work includes approximately 345,300 SF of new construction. It also includes approximately 67,100 SF of interior demolition, renovations, systems replacement and remodeling of several existing campus buildings.

SGM designed a new 600 AMP – 2,000 KVA transformer with 750 KVA auxiliary generator to complete a new medium voltage distribution system. The electrical design cost approximately $10,125,000. The project included: site work, demolition, landscaping and irrigation, improvement of existing parking areas and site circulation, portables for student housing during construction and renovation/replacement of existing underground utilities. The entire project controlled by a direct digital control system. Installed Mechanical Value: Approximately $6 million.
