Installation of Multiple Packaged Air Conditioning Units in Columbus, GA
Refrigeration A/C Units
Engineer: McKenney’s, Inc.
Sheet Metal Shop Prefab
McKenney’s installed multiple packaged air conditioning units at an
industrial plant in Columbus, Georgia. The company manufactures
refrigerated systems and display cases for supermarkets and food
service organizations throughout the U.S.
Heatcraft Worldwide Refrigeration—with two facilities and a combined
total of 442,000 square feet of floor space—needed to replace its existing
A/C units, which were only partially operational. In order to maintain 100
percent uptime on the manufacturing floor, McKenney’s had to perform
the installation without shutting down the plant.
The McKenney’s team provided multiple system options to Heatcraft and
implemented a phased installation that would not disrupt manufacturing
operations. All installation and construction activities were conducted
through the winter months to take advantage of the cooler temperature

start of design to Heatcraft’s acceptance of the work.
