Pennsylvania Electric Coil is the manufacture and remanufacture of high electric motor and turbines. Always striving to stay on the leading edge of technology, PA Coil introduced a new winding process. This new process had to be temperature and humidity controlled. IBS worked with PA Coil’s onsite production team to develop a new design for an enclosure that would meet and exceed the new winding process’s requirements. IBS used modular construction to enclose the new equipment and installed a temperature and humidity control system to bring the environment into compliance. The end result is the new winding equipment working as specified and PA Coil turning out quality product.
When you’re in a growing business it’s easy to run out of space for your employees. When AllClad, the premier pots and pans manufacture, went through a growth spurt they called Innovative Building Solutions. Adding numerous employees that needed visual and physical access to the manufacturing process we developed a plan to build adjacent to the manufacturing line. With the space allotted we were able to construct a modular two story building with enough offices for their current and future needs. IBS provided the building turn-key including electrical, fire suppression and HVAC services.
In situations where your interior space is maximized you can do what Amtrak did with their new maintenance building. IBS developed a plan to build their badly needed maintenance shop on a un-utilized area of land between the rail tracks. IBS designed the project from the foundation up and erected a pre-engineered metal building to house the expanding department. The metal building was extremely cost effective and quick compared to the conventional construction methods.
V and M Star heeding the call of the natural gas boom, invested millions of dollars into expanding their facility. Their goal was to increase their pipe manufacturing capacity. Innovative Building Solutions in partnership with Kvaerner NAC provided the design and installation of a Star pre-engineered metal building to house their new water treatment plant. This project required a special coating on the structure to assure that the building would last under the extreme corrosive environment. IBS had the entire structure sand blasted and coated with a epoxy paint. Additionally, the project required integration of various types of louvers, wall ventilators, hooded fans and roof top exhaust fans to meet all the EPA requirements. Star’s engineering department worked closely with the piping designers to assure there were no structural encumbrances to the numerous penetrations into the building. The final product included supports for CMU buildings, supports for mezzanines, platforms and several integrated cranes.
