HDPE Solutions Simplify Cooling Replacement for Local Contractor

Posted on September 16, 2020

With a tight timeline and budget, Shoemaker Mechanical needed a reliable solution for a cooling tower replacement on the roof of a Tulsa Community College academic building.

Challenged by unpredictable Oklahoma winter weather, this project was completed ahead of schedule with no issues to date.
