Mechanical and Plumbing

Fort Worth Natural History Museum

This project involved new construction, renovation and addition to the existing museum facility. Museums like this require particular attention to detail because of environmental control requirements. With more than four million dollars of mechanical and plumbing systems SkiHi was up to the task. The results were a beautiful building that houses many one of a kind displays created in an interactive and attractive facility.

Christ Chapel Church

Christ Chapel Church

Building a new sanctuary and classroom building for Christ Chapel demonstrated our ability to provide a quality project in a timely manner. As a team member with Linbeck, we performed the 1.2 million dollar mechanical project in one year. This project included a state of the art chiller with a self-contained pumping system along with other sophisticated components. The finished product is beautiful, functional and efficient.

Cook Children’s Medical Center

Cook Children’s Medical Center

The North Bed Tower expansion project was completed in 2012. The five story structure (and basement) included the addition of over 150 patient beds for the ever expanding hospital. This 270,000 square foot project included an expansion of the existing Central Utility Plant with the addition of one 1250 ton chiller, two cooling towers, two chilled water pumps, two condenser water pumps, piping and controls. A new North Parking Garage was built concurrently with the other two projects and brought the total project cost for the mechanical and plumbing work to over $22 million.  

Montgomery Plaza

Montgomery Plaza

Located on the upscale 7th Street corridor on the near west side of downtown Fort Worth, this renovated warehouse building now is home to over 140 single family residences. Originally constructed in 1927 by Thos. S. Byrne, General Contractor, for Montgomery Ward (a local retailer), this facility now offers its tenants restaurants, coffee shops and retail stores on the first floor, parking on the second floor and condominiums located on floors three through eight. SkiHi worked with Thos. S. Byrne over the course of 18 months to complete this project in 2009.

DFW Airport People Mover

DFW Airport People Mover

This “out of the ordinary” project consisted of a state of the art de-icing system embeded within the elevated concrete structure along which the trains run between the terminals at DFW. SkiHi installed many miles of special piping that was supported by multiple boiler rooms, circulating pumps and temperature control systems. Our craftsmen and management team, having decades of experience in unusual and sophisticated systems, was the foundation we used to successfully perform this project.

TCU Brown Lupton University Union

TCU Brown Lupton University Union

The TCU student union facility is the cornerstone of campus activities. SkiHi teamed with Linbeck (construction managers), CCRD – Dallas (MEP engineers) and Hahnfeld Architects in constructing this multi-use facility completed in 2006. Students can dine in several food courts, study in relaxing open areas and attend formal dinners served by the modern kitchens within the facility. This three-story structure has garnered several awards for excellence in both the design and construction industry.
