The Hunter Ridge Dairy was the first dairy project that Lind’s Plumbing completed. These types of projects were different from any other job we had completed in the past however we knew the systems they wanted and made it happen. The Hunter Ridge Dairy consisted of radiant in-floor heating in multiple spots along with a 1040 gallon storage tank feed from four 120 gallon pre-heated tanks through another boiler to achieve the needed water capacity and temperature. Also installed were some 12” and 15” Flush Lines that clear the cow lanes after milking with around 6,000 gallons of water per minute. The 15” main Flush Line was connect to the tank located in the picture. Overall this was a very successful project.
A project containing 29 buildings within one site requiring coordination with multiple general contractors and engineers is a challenge we embraced. Both plumbing and hydronic comfort systems are scheduled to be installed in combination with natural gas and multiple types of facility process piping on this 3 yearlong project. A major concern for all projects is the safety of our personnel and those working around installations. Projects of this magnitude require yet closer monitoring of safety procedures / practices. Our field operations manager, site superintendent, foremen, and apprentices collaboratively tackle safety concerns prior to and during each and every task scheduled. Successful completion of a project means not only satisfaction for contractors and ownership but ensuring quality installation with all returning home to their families each day.
