Their challenge

As the technology needs of residents and tenants continued to increase, the central plant serving the towers needed a significant overhaul. Further complicating the project was the need to shift production of chilled- and hot-water utilities from off-site at a nearby district energy plant to on-site. The owners also decided to pursue LEED for Existing Buildings certification in the process of these upgrades.

Our solution

Our team commissioned the installation of a new 6,150-ton chiller plant and a new 33,600-MBH boiler plant, both of which were installed in an underground parking deck. Salas O’Brien supported each step of the project, from design review and construction site visits through functional testing and LEED certification.
