7,500 ton chiller plant

We have designed and delivered a variety of projects for these facilities, such as administrative offices, pilot plants, chemistry labs, and research labs. These projects involved different types of engineering challenges and solutions, such as process piping, ventilation, lighting, controls, and fire protection.

We have also worked on mechanical and electrical infrastructure projects for these facilities, enhancing their performance and reliability. These projects included upgrading and expanding their high-pressure steam, chilled water, condenser water, electrical power distribution, life safety and emergency power systems. We also ensured that these systems met the codes and standards required for their operations.

Our team also designed a new chiller plant for the James Ford Bell Technical Center, which can be expanded to 7,500 tons of cooling capacity. The chiller plant has several features that improve its efficiency and flexibility, such as variable primary chilled water flow, winter free-cooling, condenser water filtration, and condenser water air separation. The chiller plant also has a modular design that allows for future additions and modifications.
