Previous projects include:

Kindergarten/Classroom Renovations

These projects involved the renovation of existing kindergarten and elementary grade classrooms. Construction on these projects was completed in 2013. The work included, but was not limited to:

  • Replacement of classroom heating/ ventilation units.
  • Addition of Hearing Assistance Systems in all renovated classrooms.
  • New washrooms in Kindergarten classrooms including new plumbing and fixtures.
  • New lighting and power to accommodate new washrooms and millwork.

Brewery Water Service Upgrades and Distribution

This project was initiated to facilitate the move from one location to another. KEI completed all mechanical and electrical design services for the move include and upgrade to the water supply service. The electrical control system was designed by KEI and equipment suppliers. KEI assisted the owner with all permitting activities including building permits and water service upgrades and worked directly with the General Contractor during construction and commissioning.

Water Treatment Plant Water Distribution Analysis

KEI completed this particular project as a result of several piping failures in the water treatment plant. KEI preformed the analysis on all network piping and tankage systems to arrive at a clear understanding of the mode of failure. Once the analysis was complete, a report and drawings were completed outlining the repairs and process upgrades required to the system.
