Henrico County Public Schools Crestview and Skipwith Elementary Schools Renovation

Scope of Services
Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) Engineering

2RW is providing MEP engineering services to Henrico County Public Schools for renovations to Crestview and Skipwith Elementary Schools. Crestview was originally built in 1954 with renovations in 1956 and 2000. Skipwith was built in 1956 with renovations in 1960 and 1981.

2RW is providing MEP engineering and construction administration for:

  • Full HVAC replacement in both schools
  • New lighting (including site lighting)
  • Electrical upgrades
  • Bathroom renovations
  • New security, clocks, intrusion detection, and technology
  • Site improvements to include bus canopies
  • New fire alarm system

The renovated schools are expected to perform more efficiently than the existing buildings. High-efficiency boilers will generate hot water which will heat the building in the winter and dehumidify it in the summer. Centralized HVAC units on the roof replace loud window-mounted units within each room.  In every element of design—including the open concept media lounge—the building will serve as a conduit of learning, encouraging a new generation of thoughtful and equipped young adults to take on the challenges of tomorrow’s world.
