DESIGN CHALLENGE AND SOLUTION
To accommodate an expanding online presence, the customer needed a new distribution hub to serve their customers. A massive 3,000,000+ sq. ft. facility was planned with multiple levels. A robust and cost-effective solution was needed to control temperature and humidity throughout the year.
Johnson Air-Rotation HVAC Systems helped design and engineer a system solution that was maintainable, efficient, and budget friendly. Creative equipment arrangements allowed Johnson engineers to design systems in spaces with ceiling heights ranging from 18’ to 65’. Factory mounted steam generators were incorporated to handle humidification in the winter months to limit static electricity which can damage their core products. DX cooling and gas heat provided the rest of the facilities comfort needs. Even with such a tall facility, incorporating multiple levels, Johnson Air-Rotation provided a comprehensive solution to meet the challenging demands of one of today’s top e-commerce retailers.
