ORLANDO, Fla. — Comprehensive Energy Services Inc. (CES) received two ABC Eagle Awards for outstanding design-build HVAC, plumbing, and special effects work on Transformers: The Ride 3D at Universal Studios Florida, named 2014 Project of the Year by Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) - Central Florida Chapter. CES received Eagle Awards for HVAC, Entertainment ($1 million to $5 million category) and Plumbing, Entertainment ($1 million to $5 million category). The awards were presented at ABC’s 28th Annual Excellence in Construction Awards Banquet held at the Royal Pacific-Universal Orlando Resort.
Under its contract with general contractor Hensel Phelps, CES performed the HVAC, plumbing, building automation, and special effects systems work for the 80,000-square-foot fast-track project, working two 62-hour weekly shifts to meet the schedule. The HVAC, plumbing, and special effects piping were pre-fabricated offsite, and sheet metal ductwork was pre-fabricated in CES’s fabrication shop in Longwood and delivered daily. As a systems integration provider for Tridium, CES also engineered, pre-assembled, and pre-programmed the state-of-the-art Tridium building automation system in Longwood before installation. By heavily engaging CES field personnel in the design-coordinate-build process and building information modeling (BIM), CES successfully performed within the existing footprint of the previous attraction.
Comprehensive Energy Services performs a full range of HVAC commercial and industrial services including mechanical engineering design and construction, plumbing, building automation, IAQ, preventive maintenance, and systems repairs throughout Florida. The company’s headquarters is located at 777 Bennett Drive, Longwood, Florida, and it opened a full-service Tampa office in February.
