St. Louis-based Wiegmann Associates has begun work on a design/build HVAC project for High Country Beverage’s new 130,000-square-foot refrigerated beer warehouse in Johnstown, Colorado. The new two-story facility will be used for product storage, product shipping and offices spaces. The project is scheduled for completion in December 2016. The general contractor is ARCO Beverage Group.
Wiegmann is engineering HVAC systems to serve the fully conditioned warehouse and offices spaces as well as two large split refrigeration systems for the draught cooler. A direct digital control system (DDC) with customized graphics will enhance climate control. The owner will have the ability to monitor and adjust office HVAC settings remotely from a single computer program.
The primary project challenge is engineering an energy efficient HVAC system that will reliably maintain the temperatures required by product suppliers while a large amount of product moves in and out of the space. Beer distributors are required to monitor and report all temperatures in warehouse and draught cooler spaces.
High Country Beverage is an independent beer distributor that has served Colorado since 1996. High Country Beverage represents more than 250 brands of local, craft, domestic and imported malt beverages from around the world.
