Featured Divisions:

Gettle Incorporated contracted with Glen Arm Building to design and build Coastal Sunbelt Produce’s new 333,000 square-foot cooler/freezer, production area and office. Due to perish ability of the product, the entire facility is backed up by a standby generator system that also allows the facility to participate in a demand response program through Constellation Energy. This presented multiple issues for our Engineering/Design Division to overcome. Coordination with the generator supplier, switchgear, manufacturer and BGE was critical to ensure proper operation of the equipment.
