Helicopter Over Juvey Center Just For Lift
September 18, 2013 — A helicopter hovering recently over Lake County’s Juvenile Justice Center was not a signal of a law enforcement effort.
Mechanical Concepts, Inc., a Gary HVAC, plumbing and service contractor, was using Midwest Helicopter Airways of Willowbrook, Illinois to lift and set 17 rooftop HVAC units as part of a Center’s renovation project.
The project involves approximately 64,000 square feet in the Center at 3000 West 93rd Avenue in Crown Point.
Mechanical Concepts says the installation of the new HVAC system consisted of 17 units, each weighing 1,500 pounds each. The helicopter arrived at 6:00 a.m. Friday and took 45 minutes to complete all 17 lifts.
