Scope

A 6.3M project including the removal of an existing 1200 ton absorption chiller and a 1000 ton steam turbine chiller and replace with two 1650 ton Trane absorption machines

Challenge

Our client presented us with two huge issues. The first was that the project was 35% over budget. We were able to work with the design team and the college, to not only alter the layout of the chiller plant, but we eliminated a major and costly structural component to facilitate the delivery of two incredibly large machines. When it was all said and done, we came in 5% under budget.

The second challenge was the time frame. Due to the design changes, the work that was scheduled to begin in mid-October did not start for another eight weeks. BP Mechanical was able to deliver a chiller plant on line by April 15th, two weeks ahead of schedule.
