Under an on-call contract with the City of Baltimore, Henry Adams provided the mechanical engineering services for $1.5M modernization of eight elevators within the Baltimore City Police Headquarters and Annex. 

Henry Adams completed the elevator assessment report for this endeavor under a different task order, which included assessing 72 elevators located at 31 unique sites. The scope of work for this elevator modernization was based on the assessment and recommendations previously conducted by Henry Adams. 

The project was scheduled in three phases to allow the City to budget the project’s construction. The phases included design, police annex construction administration, and police headquarters construction administration. 

During the assessment portion, it was noted that the headquarters’ existing pit machine equipment had rusted due to water infiltration within the pit. As part of this project’s scope of work, the design team investigated the installation of a sump pump for water removal within the pit. The headquarters had five elevators modernized under this project, including four passenger elevators and one freight elevator. The annex had three passenger elevators modernized. 

The mechanical scope included HVAC and associated building controls for the cooling of elevator penthouse machine rooms and required equipment. The team included an elevator consultant that developed specifications and drawings for the selection of the new equipment for the modernization. 

The electrical scope included power for new elevators and HVAC equipment. Lighting was brought up to code required standards in elevator lobbies, elevator pits and elevator machine rooms.

The architectural scope included modifications to finishes in the elevator lobbies, building signage, car signage, elevator pits and elevator machine rooms. 

The structural modifications to structural elements in elevator machine rooms for removal of existing elevator equipment and installation of new equipment. 

The cost estimating services included developing construction cost estimates based upon drawings and specifications at 65%, 95% and 100% design stage. The cost estimator provided written cost estimates broken down per specification discipline. Each discipline was broken down by line items.
