Campus Chiller Replacement #1

McKim & Creed staff provided mechanical, electrical and structural engineering for a campus chiller replacement project at Carnegie Mellon University. The purpose of the project was to replace a vintage 1987 4160-volt 500-ton chiller with a 480-volt variable speed 800-ton chiller located in Physical Plant Building. McKim & Creed also reviewed a 900-ton cooling tower that was nearing the end of its useful life and furnished recommendations to updates and repairs. In addition, the team provided a thorough review of existing conditions related to the 500-ton chiller, pumps and electrical switch gear.

Carnegie Mellon is a private, global research university that has been named #1 in computer science, artificial intelligence, information technology and management and computer engineering.
