M&D Mechanical Contractors has been chosen as a subcontractor for Turner Construction for the ULA Factory Optimization Project - Phase 1A-1B. This project is part of United Launch Alliance's ongoing plant consolidation for the production of the Atlas and Delta series of rockets. Phase 1A involves the demolition of an existing tooling platform and the compressed air piping associated with it. Phase 1B is the construction of new floor trenches to carry the orbital-welded high purity gaseous helium and nitrogen, compressed air and hydraulic fluid piping to three new commodity stations and thirteen new compressed air stanchions. Also part of Phase 1B is the construction of a new electrical room and hydraulic room to house the relocated hydraulic power unit with fan coil units and the associated chilled water piping. Cleaning of the high purity piping is also part of the Phase 1B work.
