INSTALLATION: Thaw-Pak Hydronic Snow Melt System

COMPLETION: October 2007

CUSTOMER: The Mall at Partridge Creek, Clinton Township, Mich.

OBJECTIVE: Provide heated, snow-free paths for outdoor mall in Michigan climate.

DESCRIPTION: The Mall at Partridge Creek is an open-air shopping center featuring more than 85 stores. Located in Michigan, where the winters are cold and snowy, Goyette Mechanical, Flint, Mich., needed something that would keep the 128,360 square feet of shopping paths warm and snow free. Using the Thaw-Pak® Hydronic Snow Melt system, supplied by Performance Engineering Group, Livonia, Mich., Goyette installed 229,000 linear feet of 3/4-inch PEX tubing under brick pavers at 9 inch on center.

Twelve Raypak Hi-Delta Boilers, concealed on building rooftops, provide the hot water for the system. Total system capacity is 24,840 MBtuh. The boilers are all 87 percent efficient and have built-in cold start protection. The system is controlled using two Tekmar 665 controllers that are tied into the building management system.

“The heated paths and walkways lead you to a shopping experience of fun, smiles, and dry feet.”
- System supplier, the Performance Engineering Group, Livonia, Mich.
