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 David Viar Performing and Media Arts Center. The existing chillers lack both the capacity and efficiency to provide the necessary cooling for these two new buildings.
