MJEC Announces the Opening of a State-of-the-Art Training and Distribution Center.
On June 15th, McMillan James opened the doors to a new 15,000 square foot facility located at 810 Mustang Drive in Grapevine. The new facility, adjacent to the home office at 1010 Mustang Drive, houses a training center, product showroom, a parts and material warehouse and offices for the newly formed After Market Group (AMG). The training center accommodates up to 75 guests and features a state-of-the-art audio-visual system with multiple screens designed for video conferencing, BIM modeling and product application seminars.
Adjacent to the training center is a product showroom which will exhibit a ClimateCraft custom “Access” style air handling unit, ClimateMaster geothermal heat pumps, a Grundfos BoosterpaQ booster system, Phoenix Controls critical environment pressure control systems, a Marley Cooling Tower, and several other products from our various manufacturers.
The After Market Group, relocated from the previous location in Garland (the Garland office is now closed), is dedicated to selling products and services to the existing building market, and includes the Marley parts and services operation. Parts and product inventories for all product lines has been relocated to the new facility.
Air distribution control within the facility is accomplished with variable-air-volume diffusers. All supply diffusers throughout the facility are Acutherm Thermafusers with complete BACnet interfaces. The low-pressure (.20”wc) duct system is exposed spiral pipe with a powder-coated finish supplied by SEMCO. The heating and cooling unit is a variable-air-volume DX system from Dectron, designed to turn down to 10% of capacity utilizing digital scroll compressors and an ECM variable speed fan/motor system. The HVAC system, and other building systems, are controlled by an Automated Logic BACnet DDC system provided by LSI. This system provides multiple small independent temperature zones and large turndown capability, with very low noise and extremely high efficiency.
