Progress Update

The heating and cooling systems use Heating Hot Water and Chilled Water (HHW/CHW) produced by the boiler and chiller plants to heat and cool the buildings across campus. The HHW and CHW use an underground system of distribution pipes. The project includes:

  • Optimized routing around campus to reduce disruptions
  • Isolation valves system-wide provide ease of maintenance
  • Detailed restoration plan protects campus features
  • Variable volume primary pumping for energy savings
  • New HHW distribution piping with integral leak-detection system monitors leaks within 3 feet to expedite repair
