Hutchinson Mechanical Services was recently named a winner in the prestigious Excellence in Construction awards competition held by Associated Builders and Contractors of New Jersey (ABC-NJ) for its HVAC and Plumbing work at The Reeds at Shelter Haven, a new contemporary luxury boutique hotel in Stone Harbor, N.J. The award recognizes the “best of the best” in the construction industry throughout New Jersey.
“We’re honored to be recognized for our work in providing The Reeds at Shelter Haven with energy-efficient and cost-effective solutions. ‘Comfort, savings and innovation’ are the fundamentals of the Hutchinson culture and philosophy – and that’s exactly what is reflected in The Reeds design,” said Ed Hutchinson, President, Hutchinson Mechanical Services.
In collaboration with Moore Consulting Group and Concord Atlantic Engineers, Hutchinson installed a variety of heating, cooling, ventilation and exhaust systems throughout the hotel, including the kitchen, shared public spaces like the dining, banquet and lounge areas, as well as individual guest rooms.
This state-of-the-art HVAC equipment, including a Mitsubishi variable refrigerant flow (VRF) zoning system with 41 air handling units provides economically precise, individual comfort control to multiple spaces without taking up the amount of space required by traditional ducted systems.
One of the most unique and green features incorporated into the design is the integrated Building Automation System and guest reservation system, which enables individual units to be activated when a guest checks in and turned off when the room sensor determines the room is not occupied. Employees at the front desk can access the systems to turn units on and off and also adjust room temperatures to meet guests’ needs.
As with any high-end luxury facility, plumbing systems are no longer a secondary afterthought but part of the entire holistic luxury experience. This is no more evident than in the finely detailed guest rooms and common areas of the Reeds featuring the highest quality sustainable designs.
The Hutchinson group of companies is a leading energy and mechanical services contractor serving the Tri-State Region for over 65 years. Servicing the needs of commercial and residential clients, this third-generation family business trades under the banner of Hutchinson Mechanical Services, Hutchinson Plumbing Heating Cooling, and Hutchinson Energy Services.
