If you have spent time on our website, you know James CRAFT & Son prides itself on providing “Quality CRAFTsmanship in Every Job” and being a contractor of the highest quality standards. This was once again proven at the Excellence in Construction Awards Gala for the Keystone Chapter of Associated Builders & Contractors for our work in 2015 on the Holy Spirit Hospital – Crums Mill Urgent Care Center.

On Wednesday, November 2nd, James P. Craft (Project Manager) accepted the Merit award on behalf of James CRAFT & Son at the Awards Gala. Our project was awarded this honor in the HVAC Under $250,000 category.

James CRAFT & Son was hired to design and perform the Plumbing and HVAC revision of their newly acquired medical office space. This older space was purchased with the intent of providing the community with a new urgent care center backed by the quality and outstanding reputation of Holy Spirit Hospital and Geisinger. James CRAFT & Son has long been a partner with The Norwood Company and Holy Spirit Hospital, this existing relationship led us to be the clear choice in a partner who understood the needs of the customer and could work hand in hand with their staff.

Our project team began with the detailed review of the existing plumbing and mechanical systems in order to determine how to best use the existing Plumbing and Mechanical systems to fit the new office layout and reduce costs to the customer. Because the existing heating & cooling system was still in good shape and adequately sized to handle the owner’s needs, we were able to come up with a design that allowed us to re-use much of the existing ductwork as well as the existing controls system. This allowed us to greatly reduce the cost of the project as there was no new equipment needed to achieve the owner’s goal.

Thanks to our outstanding design team and our experienced installers, we were able to help bring this project in on time and under budget. Congratulations to the crew who worked on this project. Your hard work is very much appreciated and our team is already on the lookout for next year’s ABC EIC entries!
