EMCOR Services New York/New Jersey delivered a new central chilled water plant and mechanical equipment room, helping optimize facility space and energy efficiency.
EMCOR Services New York/New Jersey (ES NY/NJ) provided the complete turnkey delivery of a new central chilled water plant and a mechanical equipment room (MER) adjacent to the building. We coordinated construction to allow the existing chiller plant to continue running through the rest of the season. The new MER freed up significant space for future capital projects.
Because the facility was located in a residential area, we designed the MER to meet specific constraints, aesthetics, and acoustic requirements. We worked with local municipalities and design engineers to help accommodate community needs. As a result, we designed and built an acoustic enclosure to help reduce noise pollution.
The client needed to upgrade their chilled water plant, with two main objectives: to convert to an air-cooled system, and to build an outdoor MER.
ES NY/NJ provided and installed:
- A new central chilled water plant
- Pumping stations with variable-frequency drives
- A building management system
- Over 1500 linear feet of CHW piping
- A new outdoor MER
Our team specified the new plant based on new 400-ton air-cooled chiller models, which utilized an environmentally friendly refrigerant.
We performed extensive exterior work for the outdoor MER, including:
- Poured foundation
- New steel dunnage
Finally, we demolished and removed the old basement chiller plant after the new chillers were commissioned. The old cooling tower cells were rigged off of the roof, providing additional space.
The client is a major telecommunications company.
