HVAC Upgrades

DM Engineers played a pivotal role in conducting essential mechanical code inspections for several significant HVAC upgrades in collaboration with DLAR, SBS, and IAVI. These inspections encompassed a diverse range of critical systems and enhancements aimed at improving the overall functionality and efficiency of various facilities. The scope of work included the addition of a 600-ton central chiller plant with a water-cooled electric centrifugal chiller, pumps, valves, and associated equipment within the existing chiller plant, as well as the replacement of the existing fuel oil transfer pump set and controls with a new fuel oil transfer system. DM Engineers also oversaw modifications to the existing main air handling units, each with a capacity of over 40,000 CFM, to enhance air circulation and quality. Additionally, upgrades to AHUs 1-4 involved fan replacements, cooling coil installations, and heat exchanger improvements. The installation of a new 1000KW/1250KVA diesel engine generator with automatic transfer switches and the conversion of the building management system from pneumatic to direct digital controls further optimized the facilities. DM Engineers' expertise ensured that these projects met code requirements while enhancing HVAC performance and reliability.
