SCOPE OF SERVICE
For this project, Heritage provided a single-source mechanical systems solution, including a leading-edge building management system. The system helps improve energy efficiency by controlling such advanced components as split system air conditioners, variable frequency drives, variable air volume boxes, induction units, and fan powered boxes. Components like these help the facility adjust its energy consumption to meet changing conditions.
In addition to much-needed insulation, Heritage installed new air handling units, unit heaters, various pumps and fans, and heat exchangers, as well as both hydronic piping and sheet metal ductwork. To enable reliable operation of mission-critical applications, the company also air conditioned the computer room.
At Heritage’s 40,000-square-foot fabrication facilities, the company manufactured sheet metal ductwork tailored to this project’s specifications.
