Nike – District Utility Plant (DUP)

The new Nike expansion in Hillsboro is support by a next-generation District Utility Plant (DUP) and mechanical room.  JH Kelly worked with Hoffman Construction, including PAE engineers and ZGF Architects.  This Lump Sum contract was completed in 12 months, and consisted of 4 large cooling towers with 4 additional centrifugal condenser water pumps, as well as 8 boilers.

With such an innovative and worker-friendly owner in Nike, our impact to their campus life had to be minimal but with expedited schedules. Our fabrication facility was a major asset in this project as piping skids and modular racks were deliver to the Hillsboro site Just-In-Time –¬†leading to less congestion and laydown requirements.

JH Kelly assisted with the large equipment setting and was responsible for all small equipment procurement and installation including pumps, tanks, pressure vessels, water treatment and softening. Piping systems include steam, condensate, gas, fuel oil, boiler feedwater, makeup water and blowdown.

The entire project was modeled in 3D helping to eliminate field problems and expedite pre-fabrication. It has proven to be a useful tool to help the owner and general contractor alike discuss problems in a real working building and address access and maintenance issues long before costly field repairs.

There were zero recordable incidents on this project.
