Beards of Freije-RSC








While November is certainly a time to give thanks, it is also a month widely known as No-Shave November. With the goal of raising awareness of cancer by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose during treatment, Freije-RSC was proud to encourage our employees to share their best facial hair in the Beards of Freije contest.

After a month-long photo collection process, we are proud to present the men and women (don’t worry they are stick-on) Beards of Freije submissions.

Grand Park

Job Highlight: Grand Park Indoor Soccer Arena

Freije-RSC is honored to be part of the HVAC and plumbing completion of the Grand Park Indoor Soccer Arena located in Westfield, Indiana. A 377,785-sq.ft. arena, the facility will hold three indoor soccer fields and a Flex Center containing a Jonathon Byrd’s restaurant, common areas, offices, showers, a game viewing mezzanine, a bar and many other amenities.

Supplying four large air rotation units made up of five sections, the Freije-RSC installed cooling condensers will each supply 150 tons of cooling each to the arena portion of the building. This large-scale project will require 16 semitrailer deliveries, and will come with building management controls by DDC Controls. Complete with custom Web pages and interactive Internet, the Freije-RSC installed equipment will be able to be monitored and scheduled to optimally meet the arena’s needs.

The Flex Center will be supplied by 100 tons of rooftop air handling units to assist with cooling and heating. Complete with zone-controlled variable air volume boxes with space sensors, the Flex Center’s full commercial kitchen will be supplied by an additional 10 ton rooftop unit. Collectively, the Flex Center will require more than 80 plumbing fixtures and plumbing installations in the kitchen, bar and dining areas.

Project completion is slated for March 2016. Stay tuned for further updates, and follow Freije-RSC on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Freije-RSC Excels at Pharmaceutical Installation

Job Highlight: Freije-RSC Excels at Pharmaceutical Installation

Freije-RSC Excels at Pharmaceutical Installation

The installation of a large pharmaceutical-grade cooler can be quite the undertaking, with many moving parts and phases required to complete the project. With the help of 15 employees, Freije-RSC was able to take massive strides on several phases of a large pharmaceutical project by completing many multi-step and multi-trade installments ahead of schedule.

Under strict sanitation and temperature control requirements, each step of the process must be validated to make sure work has been completed up to standard. By ensuring that each phase is completed correctly and in a timely manner, Freije-RSC has been able to work seamlessly with other trade professionals in order to complete each part of the project.

“Finishing these phases early is very difficult when you are dependent on trades outside your company. Our lead men on each trade made it a point to set up a working rapport with other trades, and then convey the schedule very clearly,” said Jeff Michalski, industrial contract manager.

With the help of the general contractor, those working on the project were able to complete their work in the most efficient way possible, and wrap the job ahead of schedule.

Are you interested in utilizing Freije-RSC for your next industrial pharmaceutical-grade cooler installment? We would love the opportunity to speak with you. Get in touch with us!


Freije-RSC Contributes To Indianapolis Habitat for Humanity Board Build

During the month of April Freije-RSC was proud to donate time and labor to assist the Indianapolis Habitat for Humanity organization with their first ever Board Build. What is a Board Build, you ask? Rather than the Habitat for Humanity board members going into the community to raise money through outings and lunches, they strap on their tool belts and invite local businesses to assist them in building a home for a local family in need.

A truly humbling experience, our team of foreman employees was honored to provide assistance on tasks such as plumbing and mechanical projects.

It was an amazing experience to see the project from start to finish. I couldn’t believe that it started as a shell and a month later was livable. At the kick off meeting we found out that these homes aren’t given away, they’re earned. Knowing that I helped set the piping and build the ductwork was very rewarding. I can’t wait to do it again and I hope to set up a company build day shortly. ” – Ashley Griffith, Freije-RSC Construction Coordinator

Collectively, the Board Build raised over $66,500 to help fund this family’s very first house. Freije-RSC is proud to have worked on such a rewarding build and welcomes the Harris family to their home.
