icon Mechanical served as the Design/Build Contractor for this 146,000 square foot office/beer warehouse facility. The facility is designed to Anheuser Busch specifications complete with office, controlled environment warehouse, draught cooler, drive thru truck loading area, and truck wash bay.

icon Mechanical designed the lake source geothermal HVAC system with a 60,000 feet geothermal loop in the site’s 5 acre lake. The loop is connected to 3 – 50 ton reversible chillers which can provide chilled water and heating water simultaneously. The loop feeds water source condensers for the draught cooler. The condensers feed refrigerant evaporators. The office is served by 50 tons of water source heat pumps with high efficiency condensing boiler backup. The drive thru is heated with hot water unit heaters and has Rite Hite ceiling fans to provide air movement. The drive thru contains NOx detectors and exhaust system to remove pollutants from building. The wash bay is heated with infrared heaters.
