The chilled water system expansion project will take place in two phases. The first phase will replace an aging and inadequate plant in the core of campus by constructing a 7,200 square-foot building that will house two 2,500 ton chiller units. It will include space for future expansion capacity for a third unit. The plant will support future anticipated growth on the south side of campus and is planned for completion in the spring of 2022. The new chilled water plant will be located near the Lem Morrison Drive and South Donahue Drive intersection, just west of Ham Wilson Arena. The second phase of the project will demolish the current chilled water plant on Wilmore Drive between the Gavin Research Laboratory and Brown-Kopel Student Achievement Center. Demolition is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2022.
