hydronic control overkill?

one of my best church customers has an antiquated control system,(robertshaw-commercial),and was quoted 25K to just upgrade it.I have looked at it and it is a hardwired system only about 20 years old.As complex as it looks its just 5 fan coils with hot water coils and 3-way valves and outdoor condensing units and circ pumps,I should be able to simplify this shouldnt I?

    sounds like too much, but...

    I am not looking at the system and not talking to people about the new requirements.

    Mike mentioned tecmar, which would be a solid choice. I am quite impressed with Caleffi iRadiant controls. They seem to be just a great fit for the lower end commercial work like what you are describing. I haven't installed one, but the flexibility of the system is what made me think it perfect for the a setup that could grow and change as building use does.

    Commercial/industrial controls can be frightfully expensive even for small installs.

    By the title of the thread, I thought you were adressing me. :)

    Caleffi sounds good to me.

    at least take a look at it. some control jobs are bit pricey could be the pneumatics are a good chunk of whats not happening right with them...maybe they have included large items like control pannels or upgrades to the electrical room....hard to divine stuuf at a distance :) A?
