Central Plant #1 Expansion


This project anticipates expanding the Central Plant from its current approximate 500-ton capacity to an approximate 1500 ton capacity in anticipation of the construction of the Science Building and the Instructional Building & Conference Center (IBCC). The existing chillers lack both the capacity and efficiency to provide the necessary cooling for these two new buildings.
