Installation of Industrial Chiller and Air Handling Unit
Industrial Chiller and
Air Handling Change-Out
Charlotte, North Carolina
Contractor: McKenney’s, Inc.
McKenney’s overcame obstacles to install a process chiller and
industrial package cooling unit at a packaging manufacturing plant.
The manufacturer’s cooling system was no longer reliable. At the
worksite, there was not reasonable access to the plant’s rooftop to
install the new air handling unit (AHU) and chiller on the side of the
building. Also, careful coordination was needed to install the package
unit and chiller simultaneously—with the plant’s production levels
dependent on chilled water.
To gain access to the rooftop, the McKenney’s team coordinated with a
neighboring facility and a local crane company to position a crane
on the neighboring property. To install the chiller, McKenney’s met the
customer’s last-minute request to reconfigure the piping necessary
for other long-term maintenance and operation goals. Then, the team
shut down the system during a short 36-hour window to quickly
disconnect and reconnect piping without significantly disrupting

By leveraging its design/build expertise and coordination skills,
McKenney’s completed the installation on time and under budget
while exceeding the customer’s expectations.
