The project consolidated the three independent chiller plants that served the facility into one new central chiller plant that was highly reliable and highly efficient. We used energy modeling and plant optimization tools to work with Medtronic to select the best and most cost-effective replacement solution for their cooling needs.

We also ensured the quality and performance of the new chiller plant by providing commissioning services. We reviewed the design documents, provided feedback on the control sequences, created a comprehensive commissioning plan, and performed function testing for all mechanical and electrical equipment on the project. The project included centrifugal chillers, cooling towers, variable primary pumping systems, fan coil units, exhaust fans, and rooftop makeup air unit.
