facility expansionFulton Companies announced the completion of construction on its major facility expansion project. The expansion has added 112,000 square feet of manufacturing space, research & development laboratories, and offices.

The expansion’s manufacturing space is now fully functioning; office space transitions have begun and are expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2012. An additional $3.5 million will be spent to complete project interior and equipment needs.

A heating system for the office space features a 12 zone in-floor radiant hydronic system. When there is a need for heat in this space, waste heat from either the factory’s Research & Development facilities, or its manufacturing processes, is assessed and used. The office space is divided up into 43 zones with a state-of-the-art chilled beam system mounted in the ceilings to efficiently distribute cooling to the building occupants. Cooling towers are incorporated to manage the energy balance of the overall system. The system also has the potential to utilize gas absorption heat pumps and retention ponds as an energy source.
