What We Do
Since 1897, our business has involved the design, engineering, fabrication, and installation of plumbing, heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems, process and boiler piping, as well as building automation services.
Featured examples that showcase Tweet/Garot’s experience and capabilities at customer locations throughout the United States.
Prospera Credit Union
The goal for this project was to create a highly visible branch and have a clean, modern look. Design for both the plumbing and HVAC systems were completed by Tweet/Garot Mechanical. Reviewing the lifecycle cost evaluation for multiple systems, the owner was able to confidently make a mechanical system selection that aligned with their lifetime vision for the new building.
Integration between our Tweet/Garot sourced Tridium building automation platform and the packaged RTU controllers was imperative. This pairing afforded the owner to meet their specific occupant comfort needs while maintaining a high bar of energy efficiency.
Tweet/Garot was able to provide the owner with a clean and highly effective air system by utilizing both a final filter curb and bi-polar ionization. This addressed the current concerns of the COVID pandemic while also ensuring the IAQ was well above the industry average.
Recessed destratification fans, architectural slots, and electric baseboard provided a clean feel while strategically addressing the large storefront windows of the lobby.
Lean thinking in time of crisis. In a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tweet/Garot Mechanical, Inc. (De Pere, WI), along with the team of HGA, Boldt and Faith Technologies, collaborated to design an acute care solution in under two weeks. The team set out to achieve three major project goals: provide hospital level clinical care via a modular, prefabricated rapid response solution. At Boldt’s facility in Appleton, the manufacturing team utilized pull-plan sessions to streamline the production process. From start to finish, a module can be completed in less than 10 days. Modular components were designed to maximize transportation constraints using the “C-Can” mindset. As a result, the modular solution allows for true expandability with little design modifications needed to scale bed capacity. Tweet/Garot provided HVAC, plumbing and medical gas services for this project.
With most team members working remote, the project kicked off with a “virtual” big room where component teams worked through design constraints and constructability challenges while considering an “off the shelf” approach – such as a standard HVAC rooftop unit retrofitted to meet isolation room requirements. Utilizing a one-model approach, component teams were able to start clash detection while the design continued to evolve.
A 140,000 square foot expansion for a Starbucks soluble products plant created space for an additional six new whole bean roasters, allowing the plant to offer packaged coffee to Starbucks stores and retail locations in the Northeast and Southeast United States. The existing two roasters produce Starbucks VIA® Instant, as well as the coffee base for Frappuccino® blended beverages and many of Starbucks bottled and canned beverages.
Tweet/Garot Mechanical was instrumental in the successful completion of the project by providing process pipe craftsmen, certified structural steel welders and qualified riggers for the following mechanical and equipment fabrication services:
- Nitrogen Piping Installation
- Dust Collection Relocation
- Mechanical Utilities Installation
- Roaster Deck Floor Penetrations
- Packaging and Palletizing Installation
- Roaster Receiving Hopper Support Stand
- Super Sack Relocation
- Cablevey Support Stand
- Receiving Hopper Support Structure
The Receiving Hopper Support Structure alone is an impressive 135’L x 14’W x 35’H, requiring 143,889 lbs of steel, 23,861 assembly parts and 5,117 bolts.
This large-scale, tight-deadline project required precise fabrication accuracy, timely site staging and a safety-focused field crew.
Ajinomoto Foods North America, Inc. (formerly Ajinomoto Winsor, Inc.) completed the construction of a $31 million, 135,000-square-foot frozen food processing facility in Joplin, Missouri. Ajinomoto Foods is a leading company in the frozen food industry. Tweet/Garot Mechanical partnered with Consolidated Construction Co. Inc. as a full-service design/build firm for this project.
The challenges of starting construction in Missouri in spring posed major hurdles for the kickoff of the project. From underground plumbing trenches filling up with water to fears of tornados, Tweet/Garot took the challenges in stride and continued to bring the project to completion on time and on budget while maintaining an exemplary safety record.
Tweet/Garot was instrumental in the successful completion by providing plumbing, HVAC, and process piping services, along with the highest level of customer service.
Freeport LNG Plant
The start to the construction season was jumpstarted by the Freeport Liquefied Natural gas plant in Texas. Tweet/Garot was contracted for this project which was one of the few facilities in the United States that will convert natural gas to a liquid state and allow it to be shipped overseas and sold to other countries. The scope of the project consists of 12 buildings between two sites (the PTF site in Freeport, Texas and the LQF site in Quintana, Texas) where Tweet/Garot employees are providing the HVAC systems.
The project consisted of rigging and setting of louvers and heavy industrial ventilation. The industrial ventilation was all encased in structural steel adding to the complexity of the project. The team was also tasked with installing air handling units, condensers, exhaust fans, and associated piping.
The PTF site consists of five buildings that range in size from small guardhouses to large control buildings. The LQF site housed seven buildings that are near-duplicates to the Freeport site. Tweet/Garot had 12 members on its crew logging nearly 22,000 man-hours with ZERO recordable incidents.
Aurora BayCare Medical Center
In order to support the growing community of Kaukauna and the surrounding area, Aurora BayCare Medical Center created access to local healthcare options with a new facility. The 77,000 square foot building will offer outpatient surgery, urgent care, primary care, and specialty care services.
weet/Garot Mechanical provided and installed comprehensive HVAC, Plumbing, Medical Gas, and Building Automation solutions for the facility:
- Surgery area including three OR suites
- Urgent Care area
- Clinical Outpatient area
- Physical Therapy area
- Sterile Compounding Pharmacy
- 7,000 square foot Mechanical Penthouse
- 10,000 square feet of radiant in-floor heat installed with 15,000’ of PEX tubing
- Two 4,000 MBH Ultra High Efficient full condensing hot water boilers
- Two chillers: one 200-ton & one 100-ton
In addition to the use of innovative technologies, collaboration with Miron Construction and HGA created efficiencies that were gained early in the project. BIM Coordination strengthened collaboration across teams and produced great accuracy. This resulted in a smooth start-up process and allowed the schedule to stay on track. Total Station layout for under slab drain mains allowed deep groundwork to be completed prior to laying foundations and frost sets in. Efficiencies were also gained through prefabrication efforts.
