Data Center: 16,000 SF space provided with mechanical upgrade for cooling redundancy. Project included 260 tons of dual coil computer room units, dry cooler central plant located on the roof, and primary/secondary Glycol pumping system.
New Central Plant, Phase 1: 5,500 SF central plant building to house hot water boilers and centrifugal chillers to serve adjacent 1.2 million SF headquarters complex. Piping from central plant (2-16” chilled water, 2-6” hot water) was routed under pedestrian crosswalk from parking deck over a city street. Hot water system included 2-1560 kW boilers, associated pumps, distribution piping, and plate & frame heat exchangers that replaced existing steam shell and tube heat exchangers. Central Plant included provisions for future installation of centrifugal chillers, cooling towers, plate & frame waterside economizer, and pumps. New automation controls were interfaced with existing Building Automation System.
New Central Plant, Phase 2: Two 1,000-ton centrifugal chillers, two 1,000-ton cooling towers, condenser water filtration system, plate & frame water-side economizer, associated pumps, ASHRAE Standard 15 ventilation system, and automation system. Cooling towers were mounted on a service platform located on the roof of central plant building. New chilled water system operates in parallel with existing ice storage system.
