Central Energy Plant Updates
This Central Energy Plant (CEP) has 6,000 tons of chilled water capacity and approximately 99,000 MBH of medium temperature hot water that serves the North (6 Buildings) and South (7 Buildings) Campus. The design included the removal of a ½ mile pedestrian bridge that was also used to support and distribute the hydronic chilled and hot water heating piping to the South Campus. The chilled water was designed to go underground by means of directional boring under two streets. A new high efficiency condensing boiler plant was designed for the South Campus to decentralize the boiler plant. Two new 500-Ton water cooled chillers were designed for after hours and part load Campus conditions. The North campus chilled water distribution loop remained as is. The 99,000 MBH medium temperature boiler plant was removed, and a new higher efficiency North Campus boiler plant was designed to serve the North Campus buildings in the CEP. The design included providing new plate and frame heat exchangers and dedicated building pumps for the South Campus buildings. Construction administration and project management were also included.
