Mechanical Insulation (Pipe & Duct)
PROJECT: Northwestern University Mudd Hall
LOCATION: Evanston, IL
OWNER: Northwestern University
CLIENT: Great Lakes Heating & Plumbing (pipe); Any Temp Inc. (duct)
CONTRACT VALUE: $1,000,000
SCOPE OF WORK: Luse installed 33,000 lineal feet of pipe insulation, including over 3,000 feet of Polyisocyanurate insulation on Chilled Glycol Lines designed to operate at 25 degrees.
VALUE ENGINEERING: To provide the University with a better finished product, our team recommended protective jacket on pipe in areas subject to damage, removable items where serviceability of valves would be necessary, and material substitutions that were appropriate for clearance issues and other factors.
SUCCESS: Since completion of the project, the Luse team has continued to respond to our clients as additional needs have been identified. Our ability to react expeditiously has helped the end user utilize their new space as efficiently as possible.
