This three-phased NASA IDIQ project involved upgrade of the central heating and cooling plant at Building 24. During Phase One, we replaced aging and deteriorating chemical treatment systems serving the tower water, chilled water, and steam systems. During Phase Two, we replaced the second floor plant programmable logic controller. During Phase Three, we upgraded electrical equipment, including replacement of some switchgear and motor control centers.
The campus utilities were originally installed in the 1960s and documentation of the systems did not match existing conditions. Our team performed extensive investigations on the existing control panels, switchgear, and motor control centers to identify what equipment each served, remove unused wiring, and label existing and new wiring for ease of maintenance. The complexity of one 6-foot by 6-foot control panel took seven months to complete. We performed similar investigations on all phases of this mission critical project.
