Intermountain Precision Casting
Utilizing sandwich panel structural concrete wall systems for both exterior and interior walls, the new facility for Intermountain Precision Casting allows for extreme temperature changes from space to space with very little temperature transfer. The sandwich panel wall systems were formed and poured offsite in a controlled facility where they were staged for shipment to the site and installation.
The new facility provides overhead doors for easy transfer of materials and workflow from the existing adjacent facility and from space to space to maximize workflow and efficiency. The mechanical system harvests heat from the furnace room which is then distributed to other spaces as an energy savings measure. An existing back-up generator was refurbished and relocated to serve the facility. Exterior paint colors were selected to anticipate yellowing over time as a result of the neighboring galvanizing plant. In order to accommodate facility tours, hallways were designed with view windows into the dip room and foundry. Automated robots are visible at the dip room where parts are dipped and handled in preparation for drying. Dehumidifiers are provided at the upper level drying room where the conveyor systems were modeled to minimize floor penetrations and provide for maximum density of product during production. A two-story entry lobby is surrounded by conference, training and office spaces. The sandwich panel mass walls provide both thermal and sound attenuation from the manufacturing spaces.
