  • Architect: Pond & Company
  • Project Delivery: Design-Bid-Build

This was a project involving three phases and stretched across multiple locations throughout the Marine Corp Recruit Depot on Parris Island, South Carolina. The first phase involved Buildings 903, 254, and 289 on the MCRD.

In Building 903, which was the introductory phase of the project, Mitchell Brothers installed a geothermal well field with 13 water-sourced heat pumps that replaced the old system which consisted of a chilled water system. This space was occupied, so temporary climate control was provided throughout the course of the project. In buildings 254 and 289 Mitchell Brothers was tasked with replacing two electric water heaters with heat pump water heaters.

In the second phase of the project titled, “Group 1” the scope of work included removal of the steam heating system from 6 buildings. These systems were replaced with small boilers at each of the 6 buildings. An aspect of this phase was installing a high pressure steam boiler for operating the kitchen equipment in the Building 740 Mess Hall.

In the third phase of the project titled, “Group 2” the scope of work included installing 360 geothermal wells at three separate building across Paris Island. Mitchell Brothers installed four water-sourced heat pumps including a completely new duct system at Building 151. In Building 151 a full renovation was performed on the first floor and second floor office space which included all new bathrooms. This phase included Building 700 where Mitchell Brothers installed water to water chillers from a geothermal well field. Also, two heat recovery chillers were installed that ran off of the well field to produce heating water for climate control.
