Overview

It was rare for The Coca Cola Company to outsource design/build unless project complexities required an innovative solution above and beyond the scope of traditional practices. Project focus was not on energy savings, rather how to overcome the challenges of replacing (2) high-pressure steam boilers (over 1000 bhp) in a 300,000 sq. ft. facility, with no downtime to 24/7 operations permitted.

ENGIE MEP subsidiary H.T. Lyons was hired for all mechanical, electrical & plumbing scopes for the project, funded through owner capital expenditure (CapEx). GEMM Founder K. Scott Sine PE (Scott), masterplanned a solution incorporating new construction of an ~8,000 sq. ft. addition to house the high efficiency firetube boiler replacements and how to cross tie this equipment into the existing system.

Scott’s unique design afforded no downtime to 24/7 operations during installation and construction, with the additional benefit of achieving incremental 15% - 20%+ annual energy savings.
