Founded in 1969, Clayton State University is in Morrow, Georgia on 214 acres.

Our Solutions

The university’s campus required a new central chiller plant building to be constructed on campus. Our team also installed underground chilled water pipe from the new plant to existing buildings throughout the campus. Addison Smith Mechanical was awarded the project by Clayton State University and hired Jerry L. Johnson & Associates to construct the new central plant building.

The new chiller plant is roughly 3,000 square feet with 120 linear feet of 16 foot-tall masonry screen wall.

Overcoming Challenges

This project presented several challenges during construction that our team overcame. Rain was a challenge that resulted in roughly four weeks of delay. The global pandemic, while it did not shut the project down completely, did significantly slow progress. The original timeline to complete construction was one year. Due to COVID-19, the timeline to complete the project was extended.

In addition, since this was a very small jobsite, it was crucial that we constantly coordinated with all contractors involved. The small space limited the number of contractors we could have on site at one time.

To mitigate the delays, JLJ worked longer days and weekends to get the project completed. JLJ’s subcontractors also did their part to work larger crews and longer hours to get the job done quickly.
