Project Profile

“Horst Construction has been working with West Pharmaceutical on a variety of industrial and controlled environment design-build projects in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida over the last nine years; their knowledge of our high quality standards and technical requirements were evident throughout the design and construction of the central chiller project.”

“The central chiller plant building addition was the largest piece of the project; however, Horst worked in every section of the plant in order to incorporate the new central chilled water distribution loop.  The clear and well planned coordination throughout the project enabled everyone at West to plan accordingly and the project to be completed on schedule while minimizing disruptions.”
