New Chiller Plant Design for Commercial Building, REIT

Doherty Engineering Inc. (“DEI”) was engaged to provide recommendations regarding a new chiller plant of 170 Tons. The existing chilled water plant was installed with the original building and was approximately 30 years old. The existing chiller was a CFC based refrigerant and asbestos surrounding the existing piping. The cooling tower was in need of repair and all existing equipment operated with low efficiency. DEI provided the detailed design, managed the tendering process, construction inspections and final acceptance of the new chiller plant. In addition, DEI located funding for a portion of the capital expense. Overall, the project was executed on time with the mechanical contractor and under budget.
