Installing HVAC Contractor
Wiegmann Associates designed and installed all HVAC systems on the $25M headquarters and manufacturing facility for Melton Machine & Control Company (MMCC), a manufacturer of automated robotic welding systems. The project included an extensive HVAC energy efficiency package.
Wiegmann installed a Rooftop Variable Air Volume (VAV) system and a Building Automation System with 63 zones for optimal comfort, climate control and efficiency in the 74,000-square-foot office area. High-efficiency packaged rooftop units serve the expansive manufacturing area.
Since energy efficiency and long-term cost savings were primary project goals, Wiegmann recommended and implemented a package of energy efficiency upgrades to eliminate reheat, reduce fan energy and save large amounts of energy that are typically used to heat and cool outdoor air. Wiegmann’s energy-saving solutions reduced MMCC’s HVAC operating costs by more than $50,000 per year, with a payback period from the upgrade of fewer than 3 years.
