Jack Bell Chilled Water Interconnect Project
Design and project management of an interconnect between the existing VGH Jack Bell Research building and the new Robert Ho Building addition.
The piping project involves the installation of 50 m of 100 mm supply and return piping installed outdoors with Heat Trace. The resulting interconnect provides redundancy for the site by linking two chilled water plants and it also allowed for the decommissioning of a 150 Ton absorption chiller that was high in maintenance costs and up to 10 times the energy use of the electric chillers.
