Founders Brewery

Founders Brewery was a design/build project that consisted of an existing truck terminal that was renovated into a new restaurant and bar. The restaurant is served by a horizontal packaged heating and cooling unit that is mated to an energy recovery ventilator that provides conditioned ventilation air to the space. A two-story office area is served by a high efficient furnace and condensing unit. Attached to the bar is the brewhouse where two (2) packaged rooftop units provide the space's heating, air conditioning, and ventilation air needs. A cooler expansion project was later installed and consisted of a 38,000 cubic foot drive-in cooler refrigeration system. The refrigeration system has (2) warehouse evaporator coils that are designed to keep product packaging from deteriorating due to moisture, and a packaged commercial Bohnimizer outdoor unit with a semi-hermetic compressor and headmaster low ambient controls.
