IDCS was retained by KJWW to provide the electrical design for the replacement of two electric chillers at the Cummins Life Science Center on the University of Chicago Campus. The work included new 4160V feeds, and starters for the 1,020-ton chillers. The new constant-speed circulating and condenser pumps required a new MCC, and the chilled water pumps and cooling tower fans required new feeders and MCCs. The existing installation was extremely congested and new 4160V feeders were needed from across the building. The Pump/Chiller Room had no extra space for the new VFDs and medium voltage starters; a great deal of coordination was needed to fit the electrical facilities and process equipment in the allotted space, during staged construction, while keeping the conditions operational for the sensitive research within the building.
