Ak-Chin Entertainment Complex

Project Description: Midstate Mechanical was selected to provide the HVAC for this 162,000 square foot entertainment complex which houses a retail center, movie theatre, bowling alley, outdoor amphitheater, arcade and restaurants. The project consists of new chilled water piping to the lobby, bowling alley and theater. The chilled water ties in to existing risers installed by Midstate.

We provided piping to fan coils and air handlers as well as water treatment. In addition, 27 air handlers, 52 fan coils, 34 exhaust fans, 14 relief/intake hoods and two make up air units along with standard air distribution were also installed. Ductwork was internally lined for reduced noise.

Midstate was selected to provide the HVAC for this one-story central plant that will provide chilled water to future buildings and the new entertainment complex. The HVAC includes the installation of the air handler and ductwork that will provide cooling for the mechanical room. The equipment included 10 pumps, one air separator, one expansion tank, three cooling towers, three chillers, one air handler, four exhaust fans as well pre-insulated pipe.

Midstate also installed new mechanical equipment, chilled water and underground piping for the central plant.
