Idaho Food Bank

The Idaho Food Bank illustrates Green Water’s ability to perform both the Design and Build (design/build) type segments of a new HVAC construction.

Green Water provided design-build HVAC and plumbing services for the construction of an office/warehouse facility to be used for the Idaho Foodbank as a distribution center for Northern Idaho. The facility is a pre-engineered metal building that houses warehouse space as well as a 2-story office area. The building has a total 18,358 square feet; 13,826 on the ground level and 4,532 square feet on the second level.

Specifically our design-build included natural gas piping, natural gas fired unit heaters, natural gas fired furnaces, warehouse ceiling circulation fans, refrigeration piping, heat pumps, electric wall heaters, HVAC supply and return duct, insulation, natural gas fired high efficiency water heaters, plumbing fixtures, domestic water piping, hot water recirculation pumps, HVAC controls, and testing adjusting and balancing (TAB).

Customer Relationships

Green Water worked closely with the building owner to understand their end-use requirements. We then presented several draft designs to them for review. Green Water Engineering received Excellent Past Performance Questionnaire ratings for this Idaho Food Bank Project.

Benefit to Steed Construction, Inc.

Green Water self-performed both HVAC and plumbing design-build, minimizing financial impacts to the owner from gaps in scope among trades. We incorporated high efficiency condensing natural gas furnaces with air source heat pumps; heat recovery ventilators; high efficiency condensing natural gas water heaters; recirculation fans in the warehouse area for passive cooling; ultra-low water consumption plumbing fixtures.
