The popular, ready-to-assemble furniture company, IKEA, recently established Kansas’s first IKEA facility in the town of Merriam. The new IKEA location consists of multiple parking garages, retail space, restaurants, and warehouse space. As the mechanical contractor, U.S. Engineering was responsible for participating in the preconstruction and construction services of the project; and utilized 3D modeling and coordination capabilities to make it a success.  With the advanced software used to optimize fabrication, the overall project schedule duration was shortened, which allowed for significant time and labor savings. U.S. Engineering incorporated multiple energy-efficient features into the project including geothermal heating and cooling systems.
