Arcadia Brewing Company
R.W. LaPine served as the mechanical contractor for 2014 construction of Arcadia's Kalamazoo expansion. They were contracted by our builder for the facility mechanicals as well as by Arcadia, itself, for our process-specific utilities. The LaPine crew was integral in installing our boiler, air compressor, glycol chiller, bulk carbon dioxide, various water needs and even some sanitary stainless tubing. Their team worked incredibly efficiently and the quality of the work was second-to-none. Given that much of our engineering was designed in-house, LaPine did a great job interpreting what amounted to 'bar napkin sketches' into a well layed-out installation. Also inherent in our in-house engineering was the need to remain flexible in dealing with multiple change-orders while staying within a given budget. LaPine was appreciative of those constraints and proved to be quite helpful in keeping costs down and offering suggestions on how to go things better or less expensively.
Today, nearly three years later after our project's completion, the folks at LaPine continue to be a valuable resource for us as maintenance and expansion projects arise.
I would certainly recommend R.W. LaPine's mechanical services.
