Design Build

CFS has been successfully chosen to be involved in numerous design build projects. Our expertise on how to best automate building equipment and our understanding of how all building systems operate together in the most optimized and integrated manner is one of the key benefits CFS brings to the design of a project. Additionally, our experience in the construction industry lends valuable and proactive coordination, development of plans/specs, and scheduling that benefits the project from start to finish. Combine our knowledge and experience with our core values and the end result includes satisfied contracting partners, systems that are integrated and operate properly, and a happy owner/end user.

Recent Projects:

Vance’s Outdoors – Obetz, OH

When it came time to build a state of the art 56,000 square foot facility geared towards the outdoorsman, Vance’s allowed CFS to have a hand in the design of their new automation system and interface. The facility will feature a 24 lane state of the art shooting range, a very large retail area and house several administration departments. The automation system installation will include direct control of the shooting range air handlers, occupant control in the administrative areas and integration to the retail area rooftop equipment. The system will feature full system graphic capability, floorplans showing zone temperature deviations by using color shading, and also using tablet interfaces to the equipment to allow full command/control wherever the Operator is at that time. This new facility is an exciting adventure for Vance Outdoors and also for CFS.

G-TEKT Corporation – West Jefferson, OH

CFS was chosen to assist local contractors and engineers in the design and installation of an automation system at the new Hot Stamp Facility for G-TEKT. This facility has a range of unique applications supplemented by critical HVAC systems and the required critical control they need. The process cooling system includes die and quench heat exchanger loops served by air cooled chillers that have independent control strategies that are critical to the success of this operation. CFS integrated controls from packaged cooling and ventilation systems provided by multiple manufacturers, and combined that with wireless temperature sensing throughout the facility which resulted in a cost effective approach to keep the facility properly tempered and automated.
