As Airtex evaluated potential solutions for the equipment room, they gained an appreciation for the benefits and capabilities of modular construction and saw how modular systems could be an ideal solution for many of their inplant construction projects. Airtex personnel visited PortaFab's corporate facility and various jobsites to fully understand PortaFab's capabilities and see how modular systems were working for other manufacturers.
The Modular Construction Concept
The Modular Concept Expands from a Controlled Environment Installation to the Entire Plant
To accommodate the heights required in the application, PortaFab supplied Airtex with XTRA-TALL wall systems for the primary equipment enclosure and to separate their distribution area from an assembly area that needed to be climate controlled. Precision field measurement and engineering allowed the modular systems to be fabricated offsite to minimize disruption of the operation during construction.
In total, PortaFab's systems were used to create not only the equipment room and to divide the plant space, but to also build a conference room and several individual offices that were placed throughout the manufacturing and distribution areas of the facility to centralize the individual department managers and respective employees. PortaFab supplied secondary products including border guards, overhead and high-speed rollup doors, Hi-Density shelving and much more.
