Projects in the works  

Our diverse team is always ready for new and challenging opportunities.  We are excited to announce projects on the horizon at JDR Engineering.

Just to name a few....

    The Janesville School District will have an upgraded and secure pathway system for each of the district’s academic buildings and district office by fall 2022. Each school building requires a different response to update and enhance security measures to better protect students and staff. 

    JDR is providing design engineering to the mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems to accommodate the upgraded and enhanced systems required. Electrical design includes power connections for mechanical, plumbing, and fire protection systems, emergency egress lighting, interior lighting, modification to fire alarm system/devices within the areas of the renovation as necessary, voice/data systems, and card access systems. HVAC design includes replacement of HVAC systems and modifications of existing systems to accommodate secure pathway/office reconfigurations. Plumbing design includes new support space restrooms and sinks to accommodate secure pathway/office reconfiguration.
    The Gardens Retirement Community is a 10-story tower overlooking the Hilldale shopping district and is classified as both a Community-Based Residential Facility (CBRF) and Residential Care Apartment Complex (RCAC). The newly renovated facility includes 30 CBRF and memory care units and 65 RCAC units.

    While assisting the design-build contractor, JDR performed extensive code research to the the exisitng CBRF and RCAC facility to current code requirements. Field verification of existing building heating and cooling system was performed to determine viability of existing equipment to determine whether they could be re-used within the renovated building scope. New fan coil units were provided with updated controls to provide the new tenants with better occupant comfort while also providing more efficient units. 

    JDR is excited to commence the Remodeling of Building 41 at Camp Williams in Juneau, Wisconsin. Teamed with HSR Associates, Inc. JDR will be providing full engineering design services including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and technology design services. The project will remodel the former Combined Support Maintenance Shop (CSMS) building into a single unit armory.
    Partnered with Destree Design Architects, Inc., JDR is providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering services for the renovation of the Lowell Center. University of Wisconsin-Extension Conference Centers (ECC) provides complete conference center facilities as well as distance education services and technologies to the 26 UW System institutions, state agencies, and various other educational or governmental organizations. The Lowell Center, housed within Lowell Hall provides lodging for overnight guests.

    A recent space needs assessment determined the need for additional guest rooms were needed to retain current customers and attract larger conference bookings. Underutilized office space will be converted to guest rooms that will generate more revenue without adding new square footage.

    JDR provided engineering design services in 2010, at which time, several floors of office space in the north wings were converted into 52 additional guest rooms, bringing the guest room total to 134. JDR is excited to be involved again providing engineering design services for this newest renovation project. This project will renovate office space  on the fourth floor to create 19 guest rooms in the Lowell Center's north wings. Additionally, the project will renovate office space on teh second and third floors. HVAC systems, electrical, plumbing and fire protestion systems will be upgraded to meet the needs of the renovated space.

    Soon to be a National Historical Landmark, this turn of the century building is being redeveloped and renovated into an artisan food processing facility surrounded by retail, offices, event space, demonstration gardens, and 50 microlodges.  JDR is teaming with design-build partners H&H Industries (HVAC) and Hill Electric (Electrical) to provide the HVAC and Electrical design engineering for the project developer, Baum Revision. Madison-based general contractor, Bachmann Construction is leading the $19.8 million renovation building project bringing new life to this iconic building located on Madison's near east side.
