On April 17, 2019, Johnson Controls will unveil their HVAC rooftop unit manufacturing and testing facility located in Norman, Okla. The expanded facility houses 900k-square-feet of renovated and developed space including a two-story, 52-foot high test lab. The testing laboratory is about the size of one-and-a-half football fields and accomplishes a plant within a plant environment permitting Johnson Controls to execute complicated quality assurance and innovative design including the ability to test a 150 ton rooftop HVAC unit from – 20 to 130 F.
The expansion is in response to its drive to offer innovative HVAC solutions designed to support building professionals in reaching and exceeding sustainability goals.
The facility will be dedicated to manufacturing HVAC rooftop units including the Premier line which is already achieving 2023 department of energy standards as well as efficiency models designed with system matching footprints for system upgrades.
