Located in the Avant Garde building, Tender Mercy is a unique, downtown Dayton upscale bar in the basement tenant space. The scope of the work included the installation of mini split systems, a wall heater, and insulated ductwork. Job challenges include low ceiling heights, limited space for ductwork, and limited space for equipment placement. Tender Mercy’s location in the basement of a fully occupied multi-story building required exterior ductwork, vertically installed up five stories to provide required outside air. The original project put the budget well over the engineer’s projected amount. Working with the owner and engineer directly, EnviroControl Systems was able to offer value engineering that brought the cost down and put the budget back on track.
