SMA North AmericaSubmitted by Trinity Mechanical
SMA Solar Technologies converted an existing 150,000-sq-ft warehouse in the Stapleton redevelopment into its first North American manufacturing facility by adding a 20,000-sq-ft, second-story mezzanine. Included in the scope was a 100,000-sq-ft aluminum truss system used to support facility infrastructure such as IT, power cabling, compressed air piping, chilled water piping for test equipment cooling, a 20,000-sq-ft mezzanine and an office tenant space.
The mechanical systems in the building include custom industrial air-handling units that maintain both critical temperature and humidity in the space, compressed air plant and process chilled-distilled water. Stringent temperature and humidity specifications required adding an outside yard and an exterior mechanical plant room.
