cKenney’s replaced two cooling towers and chillers at an Atlanta commercial office building with an active data center.

THE CHALLENGE

The McKenney’s team had to install two cooling towers and two 450-ton base building chillers during construction on 14 floors without interrupting data center operations.

THE SOLUTION

The team installed two new Marley cooling towers and two new Carrier 19XRV chillers with variable frequency drives. A rental chiller was used to maintain cooled air in the data center during the project. All base building air handling units were refurbished with new high efficiency motors, belts and sheaves. McKenney’s also repaired insulation and replaced chilled water coils on the first two floors.

THE RESULTS

All units were replaced safely and quickly while adhering to the owner’s stringent safety standards. As a result, the owner was able to lease the full building to a large insurance company and the new tenant has signed preventive maintenance agreements with McKenney’s on all supplemental equipment. The owner, also pleased with the cooling system upgrades, is continuing their relationship with the McKenney’s team.
