Viers Mill Elementary School – Chiller Replacement
Project Quick Facts
Alban Engineering, Inc. performed this work as Prime through the Montgomery County Public Schools Open End Contract. The scope of work includes replacement of one air cooled chiller, exterior chilled water piping, supports, controls and power in its entirety. Work included plans for permitting. The existing chiller was located within a masonry mechanical courtyard that had no square or equal length walls. An emergency generator (new and old) were also located within the courtyard.
Multiple chillers had to be evaluated to ensure they would fit the available space, maintain clearances for servicing and maintenance and meet or exceed current code required efficiencies. Additionally, all exterior piping, pipe stands and valving was replaced. All new chiller controls had to be integrated with the existing automatic temperature controls for the existing heating and cooling plant. Electrical feeder modifications, breakers and disconnect switches were replaced while using existing switchgear and conduits.
