Ready for Takeoff: Envirotech Restores Air Traffic Control Tower
Envirotech Clean Air, Inc. completed an extensive three-year, multi-phased project at the nation’s 25th busiest airport – Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) - in July 2012, according to a story in the company’s e-Newsletter. The project involved the cleaning, restoration and sealing of the HVAC mechanical systems in the Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) and base building located at the airport.
Ron Fallon, Envirotech’s vice president of special projects says, “The most unique component of this project was working with an Integrated Team of HVAC, building science, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and mold remediation consultants to formulate a restoration plan and to solve problems as they arose.”
Envirotech developed a strategic plan to clean the HVAC system within the cab of the ATCT without disturbing its occupants, who operate on a 24-hour basis. This plan involved rigorous safety, HVAC cleaning, detailed scheduling, precise coordination, efficiently trained teams and professionalism.
