In-N-Out Burger – Distribution Center

The In-N-Out Distribution Facility is a 67,000-square-foot warehouse facility with administration and warehouse offices, cookout garage, and testing facilities located in Colorado Springs, CO. Murphy installed the HVAC and plumbing for this facility. The heating and cooling were provided through five rooftop units and fan-powered terminal units. One of the RTU’s has natural gas heat and the other four are electric heat. Additionally, there are six gas-fired make-up air units. Infrared heat is provided at the dock doors and air curtains at all exterior doors. Individual electric unit heaters, duct-mounted humidifiers, and exhaust were provided throughout the building. A guard shack was constructed with a ductless split system with a heat pump for heating and cooling and an electric unit hearer for supplemental heat.

The plumbing systems consist of domestic water, sanitary, and acid waste drainage systems. Three electric water heaters provide domestic heating water. Additionally, there is a compressed air system, and a restroom was provided for the guard shack. The schedule for this project was fast-paced with multiple areas starting at the same time. To keep on top of this schedule, we worked with the general contractor and other subcontractors to continually meet the needs that came along with these quick timelines.

Prefabrication of the plumbing piping was also essential to maintaining the pace. While working during the COVID-19 pandemic, Murphy implemented strenuous COVID-19 safety protocols in conjunction with partnering with the general contractor to ensure the safety of all workers while still adhering to the schedule.

The partnership between Murphy and Haskell worked exceptionally well during this project, especially on the schedule and design changes. Our BIM team was excellent and participated in the BIM coordination meetings with Haskell to deliver the design in a timely manner. This also included design changes that came about frequently. Our fabrication team worked with project management and our field team daily to ensure the field received fabrication before it was needed.
