Whirlwind Recovery – Commissioning an Industrial Campus Rebuild Post-Tornado

After a devastating EF3 tornado hit Vermeer Corporation’s campus in Pella, IA, in 2018, the company had to replace several buildings. As part of the rebuild process, IMEG provided commissioning services for the construction of a 500,000 sq. ft. Plant 7, 35,000 sq. ft. Eco Center, and a 4,500-ton campus chilled water plant. This presentation, recorded at the 2022 CxEnergy conference, provides a case study of Vermeer’s recovery and the commissioning process that supported a successful start-up of unique manufacturing systems and spaces in the new construction.
