Project Description

Veach Baley Federal Building
Asheville, NC

MEP design services for upgrades to a chiller plant including the replacement of three reciprocating chillers in this federal office facility. The scope of this project included:

▪ The existing chillers served a National Climate Data Center and were inefficient and near the end of their useful life. The chillers rejected heat via a closed-loop with two air-cooled condensers per chiller.

▪ The new chillers feature Turbocor compressors and have a full load efficiency of 0.577 kW/ton.

▪ Increased reliability for support of critical system.

▪ Incorporation of variable speed pumping technology.

▪ Addition of a waterside economizer.

▪ 270,000 square feet.
