McKenney’s provided a turnkey design/build solution to replace
an outdated chiller plant in the operating classroom complex of a
government training center.
The specified chillers were much larger than the training center’s existing
units, would not fit in the existing central plant’s configuration, and
jeopardized the project’s timing and budget. Since training was in
session, chilled water service could not be interrupted, and temporary
chillers were beyond the budget scope.
McKenney’s implemented the turnkey design solution in phases and used
existing central plant equipment during new central plant construction to
minimize shutdowns and stay within budget. A redesign of the central
plant was necessary to accommodate the new equipment, and
installation took place during four complicated, prolonged shutdowns on

Although the scope of work dramatically changed, McKenney’s executed
and completed this complicated turnkey energy project on time and
within budget without interrupting chilled water service. The energy
savings now achieved will pay for the project costs.
