Madhouse Brewing Company, a microbrewery located in the historic Maytag buildings of Newton, IA, began production of specialty beer in 2010.

Construction took place in a pre-existing office building, and Baker Group provided design build capabilities to install piping and a new steam boiler to owner provided equipment. HVAC for the production area included; make up air for AHU’s, boiler venting, boiler combustion air, and exhaust for production area.

Baker Group successfully installed the mechanical systems to serve the owner’s requirements including; capturing steam and odors associated with the brewery and being able to keep them from migrating to the office areas within the building, installing duct and boiler flues in a building that was not compatible with this type of use, and installing mechanical systems without changing the appearance of the building.
