Nike AirMI Expansion

Murphy Company installed all mechanical and plumbing systems for the 40-plus million dollar plant expansion within Nike AirMI‘s manufacturing facility is in St. Charles, Missouri. All the work was completed without disrupting the 365/24/7 schedule of the international footwear manufacturer.

The facility’s new water-cooled chiller plant consists of three 600-ton HVAC chillers and two 600-ton process chillers, eight cooling tower cells, and new pumping systems.

This design-assist project involves three separate manufacturing building additions with new utilities and HVAC service for each addition. Murphy has upgraded the existing building with all-new HVAC systems that include six new 160-ton chilled water air-handling units and two 25,000 cfm dedicated outdoor air units.

All new utilities were supported by a new pipe bridge being installed in the existing building because the current building infrastructure could not handle the new piping.
