Client: MCC Construction
Contact: Jon Murray
Contract: Conventional and Design/Build
Start: November 2006
Complete: July 2007
Key Project Characteristics:
- Tight schedule
- Chilled water operations could not be interrupted
- High security building with top secret clearance requirements
The existing chilled water plant in the data processing building needed to be replaced, including all pumps, four 500-ton chillers and cooling towers. Due to the high security nature of the project there could be no disruption to the existing service.
Enginuity worked with the Navy and MCC Construction to tie in temporary chillers while the remaining equipment was replaced. It became clear during construction that an additional system had been overlooked that threatened the redundancy required by the Navy. Enginuity engineered a solution that removed the existing condenser water sump, utilized the new tower sumps and installed a filtration system to continuously clean the condenser water.
