Alvin Community College, established in 1948 as Alvin Junior College, attained approval from the Board of Regents to upgrade aging infrastructure and execute campus wide improvements. The campus contains numerous buildings over 50 years old which required critical systems upgrades. OSC engaged in the upgrades, remodel and buildout of ten of the buildings while the campus remained occupied and operational.
This multi-phased project included the replacement of 12 Air Handling Units, four boilers, three chillers, and 200 Variable Air Volume terminals, hydronic piping rehabilitation, control system upgrade to Direct Digital Controls, duct cleaning, full campus testing, adjusting and balancing of HVAC systems, two transformer replacements, upgraded backup generator, electrical upgrades to the welding lab, replacement of all lights to LED, and rehabilitation for domestic water and sanitary pipes.
The scope also included the full remodel of the E-Student Center and the Nolan Ryan Center’s Board Room & Culinary Teaching Kitchen, the public restrooms, and the buildout of the college TV/ radio department.
