Excellence in Construction – Alabama ABC
Ivey’s contract included installing the plumbing and HVAC for this four-story 269,000 square foot facility.

The ductwork in the building starts int he penthouses and feed sdown through the four floors through a centrally located duct chase, where it branches off and spans the floors. Plumbing for the project included underground waste, domestic water, lab water, lab waste, decorate fountain, storm drainage, and specialty gas. The construction of this project provided jobs for around 80 Alabama residents and 40 jobs through subcontractors.

New Student Housing
Owner: Millsaps College
General Contractor: Harrell Contracting
Contract Amount: $1,587,940
Award of Merit – Mississippi ABC
The New Student Housing project at Millsaps College involved the construction of three identical four story co-ed residential buildings.The scope of work encompassed complete mechanical and plumbing systems for the facilities.This project was unique to Ivey in that it was an all wood structure. Since the buildings were constructed at the same time, several framing crews were used, meaning that none of the buildings or floors were framed exactly the same. Therefore, the plumbing and HVAC had to be cut and assembled on site and differently on each building. Nothing could be prefabricated.

Merit Award – Mississippi ABC
The Residential College is a new student residence which will house 466 students from all majors and years of study. This project involved the complete installation of the mechanical and plumbing systems for the 151,000 square foot facility. Field productivity and safety were enhanced through the use of pre-fabricated plumbing units that provided the wall rough-in for lavatory and shower mixing valves. By fabricating these units in the Kosciusko, MS plumbing fabrication shop, they were assembled in a safer work environment. When they were shipped to the jobsite, they were ready to be immediately put in place allowing the plumbing rough-in to be installed in 25% of the time it would have taken by installing in the building.

Ivey’s renovation contract on a building that had been condemned, involved adding heating and cooling, while maintaining its historical aspects. None of the ductwork could be in the chapel area. It was all run underneath the floor in an area that was a mud slab. The chilled water and heating water system has a pre-treatment unit which supplies outside air to all of the other air units in order to control humidity. A 30 horsepower boiler and 40 tons of cooling equipment were installed to service the 7,500 square foot chapel and 3,000 square-foot conference area. Because space was crucial, a great deal of coordination was required to allow for all of the trades involved to complete their work. Ivey completed 5,747 man-hours with no lost-time accidents recorded.
