As the Health Science Campus at the University of Utah transforms and grows, Colvin Engineering is playing an integral role in ensuring that the central chilled water system can efficiently and reliably meet the demands imposed by the new facilities. We teamed with McKinstry to identify ways to improve the way the existing buildings operate and use chilled water, and over the next few months we will add evaporative cooling to several buildings, replace existing cooling coils to improve performance, and upgrade cooling towers to add capacity. By making incremental improvements in all of the buildings served by the chilled water plant, enough capacity will be freed up that the new buildings can be served without increasing the central chilled water plant. Investing in building efficiency improvements yields both capital expenditure reductions and operating cost savings.
