Cost-Efficient Equipment Shelter Protects Naval Air Station Irrigation Systems
"Time is money."
That's the explanation of Xylem's Richard Stolpman about why his clients specified a Shelter Works fiberglass equipment shelter to protect its irrigation pumping station at a golf course facility that processes reclaimed water at Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Florida. The engineer in charge did consider cinderblock but in the end, the analysis showed the most cost-effective solution was the Shelter Works equipment shelter.
The installation took one day. If we had gone with cinderblock, they would've had to hire a contractor, an electrician and the carpenter (at least). That can be very time-consuming. On top of the contractors you have to hire, you have to have safety inspectors for each and every one of those contractors for the job. Stolpman explained, "With Shelter Works, . . .
|Custom-sized Doors and Coastal Code Requirements Are No Problem for Shelter Works!
These were some of the challenges brought to us by a customer who needed electrical equipment shelters for a waste water treatment plant in Brownsville, TX.
There were three large buildings that had to be custom-made with oversized double doors measuring 6'4" wide by 8'2" tall that would allow the customer to bring large equipment into the shelter. Shelter Works is very accustomed to making custom modifications and was able to provide the doors to their special size requirements.
Because all three are within 1 mile of Gulf of Mexico, they had to have wood embedded in walls, roof, and doors to meet coastal windborne debris code requirement. Furthermore, we had to provide air conditioners that were phenolic coated so that they would resist corrosion from the salt air.
