Project Description

The International Quilt Studies Center was founded in 1997 after the University of Nebraska- Lincoln received a donation of over nine-hundred and fifty quilts. Before moving to its new state-of-the-art three-story, 37,000 square foot facility containing public viewing galleries, classroom and meeting spaces, a museum shop, conservation and research laboratory, virtual quilt gallery and a climate controlled storage area, the Center was located in a limited converted space of the Home Economics Building on East Campus. With the construction of the first “sustainable” green facility constructed on the UNL campus, the collection of quilts has grown to over two thousand three-hundred, with quilts from 24 different countries. The International Quilt Studies Center has also spawned a graduate program in textile history. This program is the only one of its kind in the world and encourages the study and appreciation of quilts as both aesthetic objects and as cultural artifacts whose beauty has significant importance to social and economic history.

 

To complete the construction of the 37,000 square foot facility an aggressive schedule was developed. During the project over 17,020 feet of sanitary, storm, domestic, and hydronic piping and associated equipment was installed by our workforce. Midland’s crews worked simultaneously onsite and in our fabrication shop to prefabricate every possible piping and hanger assembly in order to meet the construction deadline. Some system components installed are:

•   (4) – Armstrong Series 4030 Base Mounted Pumps

•   (2) – GTP Glycol Feed Systems

•   (1) – AO Smith Cyclone BTH 250 Water Heater

•   (3) – LES VW-100H-G Fire-tube Boilers

•   (1) – McQuay GeneSys Air Cooled AGS 120CM/B Screw Compressor Chiller

•   (3) – Armstrong HumidiClean Series HC-4100 Humidifiers

•   (4) – McQuay Model TSH Fan Coil Units

•   (4) – McQuay Model IM 217 Unit Heaters

•   614 Linear Feet of Vulcan Radiator Fin-Tube

Project Description

The Nebraska Machinery Company is a Nebraska based business that was founded in 1938 in North Platte. The original intention of the business was the sale of heavy equipment. In a series of expansions beginning in 1983 the company has grown into four divisions: The original heavy equipment division, engine repair division, a lift truck division, and a rental services division catering to the needs of construction contractors statewide.

The Nebraska Machinery project was a perfect example of the critical importance of scheduling and coordination in the construction industry. To complete the construction of the 45,300 square foot facility in 135 business days an aggressive schedule was developed. During the project over 15,720 feet of sanitary, domestic, hydronic and process piping and associated equipment was installed by our workforce. Midland’s crews worked simultaneously onsite and in our fabrication shop to prefabricate every possible piping and hanger assembly in order to meet the construction deadline. The 7,440 man-hours of work accomplished within the strict deadline of this project was performed with zero OSHA recordable accidents. Midlands Mechanical, Inc. is proud of the efforts of our team members and their ability to deliver a high quality product on schedule, as promised. Some system components installed are:

•   (1) - B&G Packaged Radiant Heating System with TekMar Controllers

•   (12) - Rittling Cabinet Unit Heaters and Unit Heaters

•   (4) - B&G Series 60 Inline Pumps

•   (1) - Culligan Hi-Flow 2E Commercial Water Softener

•   (2) - AO Smith BTI 100 Natural Gas Fired Water Heaters

•   (1) - PS International 1200 Gallon Oil Water Separator Sump Tank

•   (1) - PS International 900 PSI Gallon Oil Water Separator

•   (2) - Eshland B500 Waste Oil Boilers

•   (1) - 8225 Gallon Waste Oil Storage Tank
