This 330,000 SF fast track addition to the Carrier Plant in Collierville, TN increased the 480,000 SF facility to over 800,000 SF. Essential to the project were teamwork and strong communication between all members. As with many of our projects, this job required phased release of documents. The team carefully tracked construction costs during design to provide within-budget results.
The Carrier Everest addition allows the Collierville plant to increase air conditioner production to 2 million units per year. This facility contains a new press area, coil shop, paint areas, other fabrication areas, and warehousing. The scope of work included increasing the capacity of the existing chiller plant, plant electrical capacity, and natural gas service. Also added were an environmental compliance building, a wastewater treatment plant, an oxygen and nitrogen tank farm, 2 interior steel coil unloading bays for semi-trucks and office mezzanines.
Lighting is with high pressure sodium lights. The facility is protected with a combination of wet and dry sprinkler systems. The building is faced with load bearing tilt-up concrete panels with pre-finished metal panels extended to roof. The roof is generally modified bitumen.
Enhanced landscaping, parking for 200 semi-trailers, 20 new dock doors and a new service drive complete the site development of the building. Green design was not chosen for the building design but we did provide very successful enhanced landscaping to shelter parking for 200 semi-trailers.
