Shaw Mechanical Services LLC, Orlando, FL, has completed, as a prime contractor, the replacement of two centrifugal chillers and cooling towers at the downtown Orlando main branch for Orange County Library System, as designed by TLC Engineering for Architecture.
The $800,000 project required a complete shut down during which 700 tons of temporary cooling were provided so that no loss of cooling ever occurred to the operating facility. The new variable speed water cooled centrifugal chillers were disassembled and re-assembled in order to get them in the basement CEP.
Street closures and avoiding interruptions to the library’s seven day operation were managed by Shaw Mechanical. Work included electrical, as well as state of the art controls and water treatment systems. Shaw Mechanical implemented a comprehensive commissioning process to maximize the efficiency of the plant prior to turn over to the owner in July 2009.
