NORWALK, CONN. -- EMCOR Group Inc. announced that its Marelich Mechanical subsidiary has been awarded a contract for the installation of mechanical systems for Western Digital Corp., a manufacturer of computer hard disk drives in Fremont, California.
Marelich Mechanical will be responsible for the installation of the HVAC, process piping, and plumbing systems for Western Digital’s expansion of 60,000-sq.ft. expansion that replaces part of a single story structure with a two-story structure at its existing Fremont facility. The addition includes a clean room facility with R&D labs and a mechanical plant on the second floor, which will house much of the main mechanical equipment. The project is divided into two main phases, Make Ready and New Construction. A central portion of the existing structure will be removed during the Make Ready Phase, so that existing systems may be modified in order to allow Western Digital to maintain operations in the adjoining areas. The new construction takes place within the existing facility, which must stay in full operation during the construction project.
Marelich Mechanical will use Building Information Modeling to complete the detailing required for the mechanical, process, and plumbing systems. The entire project team is utilizing Marelich Mechanical’s BIM model to revise equipment selections and plan the construction sequences.
“We are very pleased to be a part of this complex, sophisticated project for Western Digital,” stated Keith Atteberry, president and CEO of Marelich Mechanical. “We always endeavor to take things to the next level, and will do so in serving Western Digital, providing state-of-the art technology, experienced project management, and an unparalleled standard of craftsmanship.”
