MECHANICAL & HVAC SERVICES SCOPE OF WORK
During the mechanical services project's first phase, the company removed and relocated a York 2,500-ton chiller and two 250-horsepower pumps. The HVAC services scope of work called for field assembly of a motor-driven centrifugal compressor, as well as the motor, gear box, evaporator, condenser, intercooler, controls, and panels, including gauges, indicating lights, auxiliary components, and accessories.
During the mechanical construction project's second phase, the company installed a new motor, gear box, starter assembly, controls, control panel, and other devices to retrofit the relocated chiller to an expanded full-load capacity of 3,300 tons. The firm also upgraded existing piping in the central plant complex.
