Spelman College

Atlanta, Georgia


Spelman College is a private, historically Black, women’s liberal arts college. Founded in 1881 as the Atlanta Baptist Female Seminary, Spelman received its collegiate charter in 1924, making it America’s oldest private historically black liberal arts college for women. The college is now part of the Atlanta University Center academic consortium.  


Old Fan, Limited Access

The fan requiring replacement was in a tight space with even tighter access. The client was considering replacing the entire air handling unit, but this was not realistic due to the required timeframe, and challenges due to space and constraints.

Equipment Being Replaced:

An old failed belt-driven fan.


Fan Replacement

Mainstream’s fan array was installed in two days over a Christmas break. The modular cubes were a perfect solution to the access challenges and simplified the installation. Although the tight access required the fans had to be brought in through a louver in the wall, our solution made replacing the air handling unit, or even installing a pressure wall, not required.

Mainstream provided this school with:

Easy Installation

AHU Preservation

Easy Access
