  • Construction Complete at New Tampa-Area Manufacturing Facility


    Our Tampa area team recently finished the chilled-water mechanical system installation for a new, 105,000-square-foot manufacturing and warehouse facility for Cepcot Manufacturing, a Clearwater division of Pinch-A-Penny Pools.

    About The Project

    The job included installation of over a mile of piping above and below the ground. This project also includes a wet and dry dust collection and scrubbing system, which is ducted with FRP (fiberglass reinforced piping) ductwork. This project came with challenges. We started in the end of July, which brought 23 straight days of rain while we tried to install the underground piping. Countless hours were spent with the owners, plant maintenance, general contractor, vendors and select members of Energy Air, to coordinate the FRP, wet/dry scrubbers and dust collection systems. The nature of the business operations at this facility called for special-ordered, hot-dipped galvanized hangers and stands, powder-coated stands, and rings to stainless steel fasteners. Most of the equipment inside and on the roof had to be specially coated due to the highly corrosive atmosphere.

    Project Scope

    The contracted mechanical scope was approximately $1.5 million, and equipment installed includes: (2) 155-ton air-cooled chillers, pumps, (10) BCU’s, 3 mini-splits, 3 large duct-mounted chilled-water coils, (12) 25,000 cfm roof-mounted exhaust fans, (3) 25,000 cfm smoke purge fans, and (10) 6,000 cfm wall-mounted exhaust fans, (2) 30,000 cfm supply fans to add fresh air and conditioned air to the building.
