The North Grounds Mechanical Plant is responsible for supplying heating hot water and chilled water to the majority of the UVA Law School Buildings and the JAG building. The expansion of the facility will allow for future expansion of the Law School, as well as improved energy efficiency. A 2,300 SF addition was constructed to house the new heating and cooling equipment. The challenge was to integrate the new equipment before removing and decommissioning the old equipment. The design required new Cooling Towers, Centrifugal Chillers, Heat Recovery Chillers, Condensing Boilers, Generator, Switchgear, Transformers, and all new Hydronic Pumps, Piping, and Trim. In Addition, new Heat Exchangers were installed in all the Mechanical rooms serviced by the plant (17 total).
