West Michigan Manufacturer (undisclosed)
GMB has a long history of working with industrial clients all over the country. Recently completed is this central chiller plant here in West Michigan, designed to serve a newly constructed manufacturing facility addition and also replace existing chiller plants in three other existing manufacturing facilities. The chilled water plant is constructed with 5,000 tons of installed chiller capacity, but has the infrastructure to expand to 7,500 tons. GMB’s role was to bring the plant from concept to completion, including budgeting and cost/payback analysis, design, construction administration and start-up support. The challenges included a small site and a tight schedule in order to meet manufacturing production requirements. The project took about six months from concept to construction documents and about nine months for construction.
