Telecommunications Switch HVAC Renovation

Connecting over 308 million Americans, this leading mobile communications company lives up to its goal of touching the lives of people and communities across the country. The organization’s critical environments make those connections possible, and thanks to Salas O’Brien, their critical environments in Norristown, Pennsylvania, are running better than ever.

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.

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 are also prepped to allow for the installation up to four additional high density cooling refrigerant pumps in future updates to the switch room. Salas O’Brien’s expertise and commitment to excellence helped make this project and the resulting critical environment a success.
