Tweet/Garot was chosen for this project based on past experiences installing large equipment in difficult situations as well as our quality of workmanship. Our composite crew of sheet metal workers and pipefitters installed a total of 20 Air handling units in the three new buildings erected onsite.

Our crews were tasked with drifting the large AHU sections through the side wall of the building at elevations between 60′-90′. This was completed safely by working closely with Ericksons Crane Company to develop a site-specific crane staging and rigging plan. Through this collaboration our team was able to complete the project on time and within budget.

A few project challenges encountered were site logistics and weather. Much of this work was during the winter months so our crews were working in snow and cold conditions. All of our work involved crane use so there were numerous crane pick cancellations due to weather. We mitigated this issue by working with a local contractor for manpower. If we were delayed due to weather these workers were able to stay busy on other scopes of work onsite.

Site logistics was challenging as we had little laydown area due to the size of the overall project and other contractors onsite. We were able to work with the AHU manufacturer to provide on-time deliveries and we hoisted the AHU sections off the truck and directly into the building.

There were zero injuries on this project despite the weather conditions and elevation at which the work was being completed.
