LDB served as part of the design team that upgraded the existing chilled water system at KSU. A new chilled water plant (CP2) was installed to increase chilled water capacity. Analysis software was utilized to develop a hydraulic model of the existing distribution system to size improvement to the distribution system. The new chilled water plant added two new 2925 ton chillers with provisions for future expansion of an additional three chillers. New, expandable cooling towers were also incorporated into the project. In addition to the new plant, the project replaced an existing 1250 ton absorption chiller in the existing chiller plant (CP1) and replaced it with a new 1250 ton electric VFD driven chiller.
