A medical, surgical, and teaching facility in Stonybrook, New York, needed to replace an aging fan system that was causing recurring maintenance problems. Any replacement system had to be built to require minimal maintenance in the future.
The hospital had a tight 3-week window to replace the existing fan system in order to avoid significant disruption to surgery patients and hospital staff. Additionally, there was limited space in the existing mechanical room.
A custom Knockdown Air Handler with a FANWALL® fan array system replaced the existing fan system. The Knockdown Unit was designed and shipped in components, allowing each individual fan cell and unit casing to fit conveniently through the field opening for quick assembly.
The project was completed within the three-week deadline because the knockdown air handler with FANWALL array saved both time and construction costs — while delivering enhanced reliability and reduced maintenance requirements.
