Paducah Public Schools GESC – Phase II

Paducah, Kentucky

Brief Description

This ambitious project took on the challenge of completing a comprehensive HVAC renovation at Paducah Tilghman High School over Summer Break all while successfully navigating unprecedented manpower and supply chain challenges due to lingering effects from the pandemic.

With the renovation serving as the cornerstone, we complemented the project by installing new LED lighting and HVAC controls at all facilities, drastically improving the indoor learning environment across the district.

In addition, targeted energy and operational savings efforts were undertaken in the areas of thermal envelope improvements, water conservation measures, domestic water heating upgrades, kitchen
equipment and controls improvements and targeted improvements to specialized operations at the Maintenance Annex and the Bus Garage.


Despite the obstacles, the HVAC renovation at Tilghman was completed on-time and in-budget- allowing classes to resume in the Fall Term with the benefit of an improved indoor environment.

Positive and consistent improvements are both seen and felt at all district facilities, exemplifying the comprehensive and synergistic nature of the improvements made which will benefit the district for decades to come.
