JHS Alumni Stadium
Jackson High School’s new Alumni Stadium is a first-class facility, built by Geiger Brothers in accordance with strict schedule demands. Geiger Brothers was responsible for the entire project (excluding electrical) including all site work, drainage and preparation, foundations, bleachers, plumbing and HVAC for locker rooms, scoreboard, flagpole and brick donor wall.
Gallipolis Developmental Center
Geiger Brothers performed major HVAC renovations and upgrades to the entire campus of the Gallipolis Developmental Center -- 19 buildings and approximately 450,000 square feet of floor space. The renovations included facility decommissioning, absorption chiller and satellite boiler HVAC upgrades to all housing and administration buildings, buried steam line and tunnel work and piping tie-ins. The project required extensive scheduling and coordination to ensure no disruption to any building services.
Elementary and High School Buildings
Geiger Brothers has been responsible for primary construction and subcontracts for a number of elementary and high school buildings throughout the region. Geiger Brothers built the new West Portsmouth high school and elementary school buildings and has been involved primarily with plumbing and HVAC for schools including but not limited to the new Jackson High School, Southern Elementary (Racine), Zane Trace Local Schools (Ross County), New Matamoras Elementary and Meigs Local Schools.
The Washington-Nile Local Schools board awarded to Geiger Brothers in 2010 the contract for general trades, HVAC and plumbing for its middle school building project. The new structure is being built on the same campus as the elementary and high school buildings (left), both done in 1997 by Geiger Brothers (at that time as KCI, which became a part of Geiger Brothers in 2003). Progress photos follow.
Geiger Brothers has been responsible for structural and mechanical additions and renovations to more than 30 Ohio University buildings including Bentley Hall, Shively Hall, Reed Hall, Alden Library, Morton Hall, Porter Hall, Edwards Accelerator Lab, Copeland Hall (School of Business), Lasher Hall, Bromley Hall and Glidden Hall (School of Music).
Lausche Heating Plant
The Lausche Heating Plant provides steam and heating hot water to the entire Ohio University campus. Geiger Brothers projects within this facility have included installations of new steam driven turbines, instrument replacements and additions, new feed water pumps, pressure relief valving, and new steam line valving and routing to facilitate both operation and maintenance shutdowns.
The West Green Central Chilled Water Plant (CCWP) addition to Lausche entailed an energy-efficient approach in design, installation and operation of a 2,500-ton chiller along with associated cooling towers, pumps, and associated equipment. The project included connection to several miles of 16-inch buried chilled water lines that had been installed by Geiger Brothers the previous year. This provided a loop between the new West Green CCWP and 11 buildings, eliminating the need for individual chiller replacements. Geiger Brothers, Ohio University and the architect received the Ohio Governor's Award for Excellence in Energy Efficiency for the design and construction of these cost saving improvements to Ohio University's infrastructure. Following the success of this project Geiger Brothers served as construction manager for the design and build of a high pressure buried steam and condensate line to serve an outlying campus area.
