Value Delivered

Shambaugh & Son performed top-to-bottom mechanical and electrical construction for the Seven Oaks Classical School in Ellettsville, Indiana. The design-build project was time sensitive because the facility needed to be open for the coming school year. Shambaugh worked on a fast-tracked schedule to finish the project on-time and within budget. Shambaugh also delivered value engineering services to Seven Oaks for further cost- savings. The facility features high-efficiency LED (light-emitting diode) lighting which qualifies Seven Oaks for a utility rebate in addition to the system’s anticipated energy savings payback.
