Project Synopsis: This project consisted of installing two new chillers into the Richard Jones Hall basement. It required the use of a 360T crane to remove existing equipment, and to install the new equipment into the building’s basement level. New piping consisted of 6”-14” CS, both welded and grooved, and associated copper supplies and drains. Piping was installed in the dirt floor sub-basement, with final connections to the new chillers on the basement level. A refrigerant detection system, with copper sampling lines was also part of the final product.
