Their challenge

For this project, the client engaged Salas O’Brien to provide mechanical and electrical engineering and construction management services for HVAC renovations to a raised-floor switch room in their 6000-square-foot Norristown telecommunications center.

Our solution

The project’s main focus was the installation of new OptiCool refrigerant pumps, but accomplishing this goal required the installation and modification of multiple supporting systems including heat extraction, refrigerant distribution, chilled water piping, and DC power distribution. In addition to supporting the newly installed refrigerant pumps, these systems were also prepped to allow for the installation of up to four additional high density cooling refrigerant pumps in future updates to the switch room.
