Denver Public Schools – Montbello High School

For years, students at the Montbello Campus have endured temperatures that were chronically too hot or too cold in the classrooms. That concern finally was addressed thanks to the efforts of our great craftspeople in the field.

With the Denver Public Schools voter-approved 2016 Bond, the campus received an HVAC makeover. This project included more than 14,500 manhours over the course of 13 weeks to replace three boilers, two chillers, two cooling towers, all HHV/CHW/CW pumps, new kitchen hoods/MAU/EF, 77 duct mounted re-heat coils, 258 control valves, two domestic water HS’s and HHW/CHW piping to 18 new RTU’s.

This work spread across the entire high school and included difficult locations for demolition and installation of the new equipment. Most of this project involved creative fabrication and pre-assembly from our prefabrication shop and included a demanding schedule in order to complete everything on time for the new school year. Our team delivered the project on time with a satisfied client. We couldn’t be more proud of our team for completing a high-quality product safely. The Montbello Campus will now be a more energy-efficient, sustainable, and comfortable building for decades to come.
