Duquesne University - A.J. Palumbo MER

Duquesne University A.J. Palumbo – MER

Jendoco Construction successfully constructed the Mechanical Equipment Room (MER) under the bleachers in the A.J. Palumbo Center. One of the challenging aspects of building the mechanical equipment room was the limited amount of lay-down space available for materials due to immediate adjacency of the sidewalk and city street which resulted in a coordinated effort of all deliveries.

The facility was created to serve as the main pumping station for the new chilled water system that was instituted to serve the campus facility. Jendoco provided extensive coordination between the mechanical and electrical trades for item locations such as equipment pads, electrical rough-ins, and distribution pipe routing.
