5 MLK – Modular Mechanical Penthouse
5 MLK is a mixed-use, 17-story building with 220 apartment units, 120,000 sq. ft. of office space and 15,000 sq. ft. of retail space.
JH Kelly worked with in-house designers to fabricate a modular mechanical room for the penthouse level of the tower. We fabricated the steel support structure, dressed out modules with pipe, valves, insulation and control wiring. The finished product were 7 modules that had flanged-connections. After being fully assmebled and tested, the modules were broken down, flown to the 17th floor and placed on skates to move it to it's final position.

This process saved approximately 3 weeks of schedule time as work was done concurrent with other phases and arrived on-site fully assembled, and installed as soon as the space and other trades were free and clear.
