McKenney’s leveraged its Building Services Division (BSD) relationship to
perform a central plant replacement at a commercial office center.
The fully occupied, 52-story building with a critical data center needed
new cooling towers, chillers, chilled water pumps, condenser water
pumps and a building automation system installed without disrupting
building operations. Although BSD had serviced the structure for years,
the Engineering, Construction and Automation & Control Solutions (ACS)
teams were brought in to perform the job.
The proven relationship that BSD had with the property manager opened
the door for the other teams. McKenney’s first planned several weekend
shutdowns to freeze piping and cut in new isolation valves for the
installation of equipment. Then they disassembled the chillers and set up
rigging equipment to lower the chillers through the loading dock floor
and into the building. All equipment was installed on holidays and
weekends to minimize disruptions and prevent additional shutdowns.
