Fraser Completes JFK Library Project

JFK Mechanical

New Heating System at JFK

Boston – Fraser Engineering of Newton served as general contractor for the design/build project to replace the original electric heating system with an entirely new hydronic HVAC system at the JFK Presidential Library in Boston. The installation consisted of new high-efficiency condensing boilers, centrifugal chillers, as well as museum-quality humidification and environmental control systems.

Fraser Engineering was responsible for every aspect of the project including design, engineering, installation and system commissioning.

For the second project, which was completed utilizing Lean Construction methodology, Fraser replaced an existing ultrasonic humidification system with a new electric boiler and steam humidification system for the main air handling unit. The Fraser team also replaced two domestic water heaters with new high-efficiency units, upgraded the chilled water system with new pumps and modified the air handling units in the Hemmingway and President’s rooms.
