Summary – Amazon, the online retail giant, has invested billions in Pennsylvania over the years in order to lease new buildings, hire more workers, and reduce the cost and time of shipping their products. When Amazon bought a 1.1 million square foot warehouse in Hamburg Pennsylvania, Enginuity was brought in to install the plumbing and HVAC, a job worth over $11,000,000. This massive warehouse will serve as another Amazon distribution center for the East Coast. Enginuity was tasked with installing both the plumbing and HVAC systems on a four-month fast track schedule, a daunting timeline for a project of this magnitude. Because of the location of the warehouse, Enginuity was put in the unique position of procuring labor from three different labor unions. Enginuity needed to communicate with each union and coordinate their efforts to complete this project efficiently. If this timeline was not already demanding, the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States in the middle of this project created even more challenges for finishing the plumbing and HVAC for the Amazon distribution center on time. However, thanks to their skilled and industrious staff, Enginuity was able to navigate through each logistical obstacle, delivering a quality installation for the plumbing and HVAC in this new Amazon warehouse on schedule.
