Heat re-use and integration helps make this manufacturing facility more sustainable.
Our client is the first and only manufacturer of baby diapers and training pants in Canada. When they needed to design a new manufacturing plant in Moncton, New Brunswick, we worked closely with their engineering team to deliver innovation and efficiency. Our work involved the preliminary design including creating the general arrangements to establish project capital budgets and the project schedule for the owner. Stantec also provided detailed design and process layouts, and we assisted in equipment selection and permitting for the construction of the facility.
The facility consists of a structural steel/pre-cast building structure including office complex, receiving, production, palletizing, and shipping areas. Also included was the design of the access roads as well as staff and commercial vehicle parking lots, including stormwater drainage infrastructure.
The mechanical systems were designed with an integrated plant cooling water loop. This took rejected heat from the air compressors and electrical room/panel air conditioning systems to be used to heat and cool the office area. The receiving area is heated through a radiant in-floor heating loop, and excess heat is diverted to two low-profile cooling towers.
With the plant complete, the client is now able to provide a new line of consumer product as well as manufacturing jobs for the residents of greater Moncton.
