Project Description

Brown County Schools is located in Nashville, Indiana. The district has five schools and serves approximately 1,800 students. The district needed to upgrade the HVAC system at Helmsburg and Sprunica Elementary Schools and replace the roof at the middle schools. Additionally, the elementary school plant needed to be upgraded, and the classroom unit vents were past their service life. After a competitive selection process, Performance Services was selected to implement a phase I project to upgrade the district’s elementary schools and middle school.

After a successful phase I, the district sought a phase II project at the High School to improve energy savings, indoor air quality, and update the locker rooms and public restrooms.
