GHC Mechanical Inc’s successful project of a worldwide high-end 125,000 sq/ft catering facility in the Chicagoland area consisted of 47 special rooms (27,000 sq/ft in total) of beverage areas, coolers, freezers and preparation rooms.  Given the extremely tight design schedule our partnership with RefPlus engineering staff was the right choice.  With RefPlus engineers working hand in hand with ours we were able to design 47 separate systems within a few days-time.  The tight design/construction schedule not only challenged RefPlus and GHC’s engineering staff, it also challenged RefPlus fabrication of the 73 evaporators and 63 condensers to be delivered within a shorter than usual time frame.  The evaporators and condensing units came out in record time helping to maintain the extremely tight schedule that we faced.  RefPlus assisted our field personnel with questions we had from install to startup which made for a smooth running project.   GHC maintains all these units today and we have been extremely pleased with these RefPlus systems.   From the first design meeting thru the warranty period and even till today RefPlus has always been there.  As the Sales and Project manager for this project, I can honestly say it was a great experience working with Russ Flores and the RefPlus crew.  We continue to look at design build refrigeration projects in partnership with RefPlus units in mind any chance we get.
