MMC Contractors was selected by Burns & McDonnell to complete the chiller plant modernization and other HVAC upgrades to their world headquarters as part of an expansion project.
The project included a new 450-seat auditorium, conference center, and a wellness clinic. The chiller optimization portion of the project increased the chiller efficiency and reduced energy consumption, which raised the building’s Energy Star score. By including the replacement of an existing R-11 chiller in our Refrigerant Management program we were able to demonstrate compliance with the refrigerant phase-out plan.
The Outdoor Air Damper portion of the project included installation of new outdoor air dampers and monitoring stations which allows Burns & McDonnell to comply with the requirements of the Indoor Environmental Quality prerequisite. The dampers allow for control of minimum outdoor air CFM requirements and initiate alarms if the proper air flows are not met. These initiatives contributed to the project achieving LEED Silver certification.
Any questions you need answered, or folks you want to chat with, our team is eager to lend an ear.
