Project Description

G.V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center

Replace Air Handling Units

Jackson, MS

Project Details


Harrell Design Group, PC was contracted by the G.V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center in Jackson, MS to provide services for the design and construction of an in-patient medical ward renovation to increase the number of private beds and to provide a more patient centered care environment.

Prior to beginning design of the new mechanical systems, HDG conducted a thorough survey and analysis of existing air handling units serving the project area and adjacent spaces. Based on survey data and new loads associated with the proposed floor plan and occupancies, two new roof mounted air handling units were designed to service the newly renovated medical ward, as well as adjacent spaces within the facility.

The new units and ductwork design were carefully coordinated with the existing structure and floor plans to provide vertical shafts to and from the project area. All work required significant coordination with the VA to minimize disruption in occupied spaces and to minimize the need for fire dampers and other maintenance issues.


Project Cost: $5,000,000
