Garlock Sealing Technologies Manufacturing Modernization

As part of a multi-year modernization project, CHA provided design and construction services for a new building to accommodate Gylon manufacturing. The facility required the demolition of several old buildings, which necessitated the rerouting and removal of utilities that serviced remaining buildings.

Utility System Removal and Relocations

Utility systems that were relocated, removed or abandoned included electrical, steam, chilled water, tower water, lake water, service water, fire protection, compressed air, and telecommunications systems.

Structural Re-support of Existing Building

An existing building between two buildings was re-supported to demolish one of the other buildings. The building’s structural system also considered future fill-in and finishing of the space below.

New Gylon Building

The new building included the following:

  • New Building Expansion
  • 34.5 kV Power Distribution Feeder
  • Conventional Steel-framed Building with Sandwich Wall Panels, Slab on Grade, and Mechanically Fastened Single Ply Roof System
  • Equipment Foundations
  • Office and Support Areas
  • HVAC Systems
  • Fire Protection and Security Systems
  • Domestic Water, Sanitary, and Storm Water Piping
  • Steam Distribution
  • Cooling Water System
  • Compressed Air System
  • Power Distribution
  • Interior and Exterior Lighting
  • Process Ventilation
  • Telecommunications
  • Truck Access Road and Docks

An energy efficiency evaluation was performed to identify options for building and process systems, and value engineering alternatives were evaluated for a cost-efficient design for the required functions. Permits required to operate the facility in New York State were also prepared.
