Central Plant Chiller Expansion

Central  Plant

Central Heating Plant




Schedule: Completion Scheduled for November 2016
Project Manager: Todd Merchant
Architect: RMF Engineering
Contractor: PC Construction

Since the 2006 installation of the University’s Central Chilled Water Plant, there have been several new and renovated buildings added to the central chilled water system.  As a result, and to meet the growing cooling expectations throughout the campus, the University has developed a strategic plan to meet these demands with an expansion of the Central Chilled Water Plant. 

The project involves an approximately 30’ expansion of the east elevation of the Central Plant to provide enclosed space for two (2) steam-driven condensing turbine chillers, pumping, filtration, and chemical treatment systems as well as the creation of a modified cooling tower enclosure along the north elevation of the Central Plant complex. The plan is to install only one 1,600 ton chiller with its accompanying cooling towers with this project.
