Buch was awarded the Montgomery Knolls Elementary School project in Silver Spring, MD, a multi-scope project featuring a building addition, a new HVAC system, and a large sitework package. The 12,000 SF two-story addition was constructed at the rear of the school which included, CMU walls, steel framed concrete infill stairs, windows, MEP systems, and new finishes. The project also consisted of a systematic replacement of the existing HVAC throughout the entire school, which began in Summer 2019 and was completed in Summer 2020. Five new DOAS units, a new VRF system, new fan coil units, and all new sheet metal and associated piping were installed in the school. Additionally, steel supports were put in place along with all new ceiling grid and tiles throughout.
Buch used a phased construction schedule during the final part of the project which consisted of sitework upgrades surrounding the existing school throughout the school year and into Summer 2020. A new playground, parking lot with a separate bus turn-around, and all new stormwater management facilities were constructed as well as a new school entrance.
