Ford Air Tempering Project

P1 was awarded a design-assist role with Roncelli, Inc. for the air tempering project at the Kansas City Ford Plant in Claycomo, MO.

The project will create more regulated temperatures inside the plant, benefiting workers and equipment, especially in summer months.

The project consists of furnishing and installing approximately five miles of chilled water piping ranging in size from four (4) inch to twenty-four (24) inch. The majority of that piping is fusion welded polypropylene pipe located on the roof of the Ford plant.

The scope also included receiving two (2) 170,000 cubic feet per minute (CFM) heating and cooling units and setting them on the roof of the body shop of the plant. The scope will also include refurbishing eleven (11) air handling units ranging in size from 45,000 CFM to 170,000 CFM located on the main plant.

There were twenty-seven (27) helicopter picks in one day, which required extensive coordination efforts between P1, the plant and the general contractor.

The two 170,000 CFM units were hoisted to the roof using Wilkerson Crane’s 770-ton crane. The lifts were on different sides of the Truck Body Shop, which required setup and tear down in each location.
