Project Spotlight: Uni-Cast

By John Turner, P.E. | October 1, 2019

We have been selected by Uni-Cast (https://www.uni-cast.com/) of Londonderry to provide architectural and engineering design services for a small but critical expansion of their manufacturing facility. We will help this amazing metal casting company increase production and serve the needs of their clients better with our new design.

Before:

To be constructed:

The best part of this story is how we helped value engineer pieces of the project that are not as prominent as the building’s architecture and structure. Uni-Cast knew that they would greatly increase their electrical demand with the installation of the new equipment for the addition. We were able to save them over $100,000 by proving that their existing electric service entrance was more than adequate to serve their needs. In the process, we also discovered that the existing transformer was not adequate, and the money could be reallocated to a place where it was actually needed. As a result, this project became much simpler – to only upgrade/relocate the transformer rather than a complete service entrance upgrade.

So far, we have enjoyed working with the entire design team, including Nick Golon of T.F. Moran (https://www.tfmoran.com/), Peter Flynn of Flynn Construction (http://flynnconstructioncorp.com), and Dan Boisvert of Boisvert Electric (https://www.boisvertelectric.com/) on this project.

Are you contemplating changes or improvements to your facility? Do you want to make sure your money is spent in the right areas? Let us help with practical and economical design advice!
