Wiegmann Associates begins HVAC work on new 16-story, 675-bed housing for Purdue University students

in Companies/News

Wiegmann Associates has begun HVAC work on the new 16-story, 675-bed RISE on Chauncey student housing property near Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. Wiegmann is serving as the Engineer of Record (EOR) and design/build HVAC mechanical contractor for the project.  The general contractor is Brinkmann Constructors.  The property developer is CA Student Living, a division of Chicago-based CA Ventures.  The project is scheduled to complete Summer 2019.

Wiegmann is designing & installing the HVAC and Building Automation Systems to serve 300 studio, one, two, three and four-bedroom units across 15 stories.  Wiegmann’s HVAC systems will also eventually serve 11,000 square feet of retail, study spaces, fitness center and yoga studio on the first level as part of a future tenant improvement.  The building will be the tallest in West Lafayette.

The developer required an HVAC system that was compatible with the building’s height but was also cost-effective and energy efficient.  Split systems were ruled out because of excessive refrigerant line lengths. Wiegmann designed an energy efficient HVAC system with the cooling tower, pumps and boilers housed in a mechanical penthouse on the roof.   A building automation system for the tower/boiler plant will enhance temperature control and consistency across spaces and maximize energy efficiency.

Wiegmann Associates Begins HVAC Work for New St. Charles County Emergency Operations Center

in Companies/News

Wiegmann Associates has begun work on the St. Charles County Emergency Management’s new $20 million Emergency Operations Center in O’Fallon, MO. The new center will bring all of the county’s emergency resources under one roof and speed response time.  Wiegmann is the Engineer of Record (EOR) and design/build HVAC mechanical contractor for the project. Brinkmann Constructors is the general contractor.

The 30,000-square-foot, one-story building will house the day-to-day operations of the Department of Emergency Communications, St. Charles County Police Department’s Division of Emergency Management and a 1,400-square-foot mission critical data center for county information technology operations and the county-wide emergency radio communications system.

Because the facility must continue to operate during natural disasters and terrorist threats, it will be built to comply with ICC500, the design and construction standard for storm shelters.  Wiegmann is building 100% redundency into the HVAC systems and data center to ensure uninterupted operation under any conditions.

Wiegmann’s scope of work includes the design and installation of heating and cooling infrastructure for the facility and the mission-critical data center. St. Charles County needed a cost-effective HVAC system that was reliable, efficient and would meet the stringent standards required for this type of facility. Wiegmann’s HVAC solution delivers lower first costs and operating costs, is simpler to operate than other considered options and will accommodate future expansion.

A Building Automation System (BAS) will prioritize cooling for critical areas. If building temperatures rise above a set point due to multiple equipment failures, the BAS system will start to cut off airflow to non-critical areas so critical areas such as the data center can remain conditioned.

The HVAC system will also provide tight humidity control to protect evidence housed in a 6,200-square-foot addition to the adjacent St. Charles County Police Department. A 6,300-square-foot addition to the adjacent fleet storage building will be used for maintenance and storage of the County’s Emergency’s vehicles and equipment.

This is the first time St. Charles County County has engaged in the design/build process.  All other County buildings have been constructed with the design/bid/build process.

ABOUT ST. CHARLES COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

St. Charles County Emergency Management maintains the St. Charles County Emergency Operations Center (EOC), which coordinates with the cities within St. Charles County, as well as neighboring jurisdictions and state and federal agencies during emergency activations.  The Operations Center Communications Room monitors and communicates with emergency response agencies on their frequencies.

Wiegmann Wins Design/Build Award For HVAC & Refrigeration Project For $18 Million Hoffman Beverage In Chesapeake, Va

in Companies/News

Wiegmann Associates won a Contracting Business Design/Build award for their work on the $18 million expansion of Hoffman Beverage in Chesapeake, Virginia. The design/build HVAC, refrigeration and building automation system (BAS) controls project included the expansion and renovation of the beer distributor’s 217,392-square-foot beverage distribution center and office. The general contractor was ARCO Beverage Group.

Wiegmann was challenged to design an effective HVAC system for several very diverse areas of the Hoffman Beverage facility, ranging from 26,000 square feet of office space to a controlled environment warehouse (CEW) with 32-foot ceilings and a 32,000-square-foot low-temperature refrigeration draught cooler.

Wiegmann engineered an energy-efficient HVAC and BAS system that reliably maintains the temperatures of beverage product as they move through several indoor environments at the facility. Beer distributors are required to monitor and report all temperatures in warehouse and draught cooler spaces.

Wiegmann carefully engineered and planned this three-phase project to enable the beverage distribution facility to continue operating with minimal downtime during construction. The existing refrigeration units had to be relocated twice – first moved within the existing building to allow for construction of the new warehouse, then later relocated to the roof of the new warehouse.

Phase 1 included a 115,440-square-foot expansion of the controlled environment warehouse (CEW) and new 32,000-square-foot warehouse. Phase 2 of the project involved the expansion and renovation of existing office space. During Phase 3, the existing 81,237-square-foot warehouse was renovated and additional new office space was constructed.

Hoffman Beverage is a large distributor of beer and non-alcoholic products in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, with 5.2 million in case volume and $100 million in annual sales.

Wiegmann Associates wins Contracting Business Design/Build Award for BAE Systems Project

in Companies

bae-systems-intWiegmann Associates won a Contracting Business Design/Build award for their work on the built-to-suit campus for BAE Systems in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Wiegmann designed and installed a $4.3 million design/build HVAC, process piping, and Building Management System (BMS) for BAE System’s new 334,000-square-foot, world-class aviation electronics manufacturing and office center. The new center replaced BAE Systems’ 1940s-era production facility. Wiegmann also provided a complete BIM as-built model. The general contractor was Arco National Construction Company, Inc.

“We are proud to be honored for our work on this state-of-the-art manufacturing project,” said Steve Pearce, Vice President of Business Development for Wiegmann Associates. “This project challenged us to design a flexible, efficient HVAC system within precise temperature and humidity requirements in just 20 months, with no interruption in manufacturing production. We were able to achieve that goal through engineering solutions, tight phasing and strict scheduling.”

The Contracting Business Design/Build Awards honor the finest examples of commercial Design/Build HVAC mechanical systems installations across the U.S. The winning projects “used collaborative relationships to achieve premium comfort, modern efficiency and the utmost in energy savings,” according to Terry McIver, executive editor of Contracting Business.

BAE’s new 334,000-square-foot building includes a nearly 50,000-square-foot office/support area and a 285,000-square-foot manufacturing production floor with complex process piping: gaseous nitrogen, compressed air, hot exhaust air and chemical exhaust air. The manufacturing processes require cooling water to keep production equipment operating within temperature tolerances.

BAE Systems needed ultimate flexibility on the production floor to be able to rearrange equipment as needed for future product demand. Wiegmann Associates collaborated with the owner to design a solution that would be cost-effective without compromising the HVAC and piping systems.

The team was challenged to meet precise temperature and humidity controls on the production floor, with air temperature in the 72-75F range and relative humidity between 30% to 60% year-round. The Wiegmann design solution maintains consistent humidity across the production floor while minimizing equipment. Wiegmann also installed a Delta Controls custom building management system with web access to allow the owner to monitor and control all systems remotely.
