Cakebread Cellars

Starting in 1994, Rob and TEP have designed the mechanical systems for 3 phases of expansions at Cakebread Cellars.  The long range planning that comes from a family owned and operated winery fosters a unique blend of premium features and innovation.  In conjunction with IRAPP/APCCO we designed a hybrid, energy efficient, chiller system that combined a natural gas engine driven chiller with an electric motor driven chiller.  The natural gas engine driven chiller was the base load chiller and it included a waste heat recovery system used to pre-heat water used in the winery hot water system.  All phases of work included quiet, ducted air handling systems for improved winery aesthetics.   By working closely with the Bruce Cakebread and the architectural team we located mechanical piping and equipment to minimize impact on winery functions and aesthetics.
