The Challenges

DRYCO was asked to develop a solution when mounting moisture and temperature related issues created delays on a new hospital being built in Alaska. Working with a local construction contractor in Alaska, DRYCO engineered, delivered, set-up and monitored the climate control necessary to assist on the project.

With existing humidity issues and the cold fall/winter weather on its way, the contractor knew that some form of temporary climate control would be required to assist with interior work on this hospital. As seen in the photos, twin rental dehumidifiers were paired with rental in-line electric heaters, all temporarily set up.  The climate controlled air was then distributed throughout the building using flexible, lightweight plastic tubing, known as ‘lay-flat.’
