What do you do when something is too large to ship?
And what if the location has low-hanging electrical wires that prohibit a building being lifted up and over the equipment (which is how our shelters are typically installed)?
Split it in half, of course!
That’s just what we did recently for a Midwest utility company that needed a brand new natural gas regulator station building. Normally, our shelters come fully assembled and ready to install—complete with electrical wirings and fittings, specified HVAC needs and predetermined openings. In this case, however, the pre-fabricated building needed to be 15’ x 26’ x 10’, so we shipped it in two large pieces so that it could be assembled on-site. The split building also allowed installation to be done without any difficulties by bringing each half in from the side, thus avoiding the overhead electrical wires.
