Value Delivered

For American General Insurance Group (AGI), we carefully planned and executed a cooling tower installation that helped increase energy efficiency. The new tower serves a mission-critical data center and provides enough cooling power for AGI to proceed with an expansion project, including new computer room air conditioners that require additional condenser water.

Performing demolition and rigging safely, and expertly managing subcontractors, we achieved a non-disruptive operation and helped provide more reliable water delivery.
