Humanities Chiller Plant

HH Angus provided prime consulting engineering services for mechanical, electrical and structural design, project management, and construction administration services for this new Chiller Plant at the University of Waterloo.

The installation included two new 1000 ton, low-pressure centrifugal chillers, two new 1000 ton induced draft cooling towers, associated ancillary equipment, an emergency refrigeration ventilation system, and a chiller plant control system.

The electrical design featured new electrical infrastructure to accommodate the addition of new switch gear, transformers and electrical distribution to all ancillaries.

We used Bentleys Autoplant 3D software for the mechanical piping and ventilation design to ensure the functionality of the equipment and piping layout design. We also provided our client with documentation for pre-tendering of chillers and assisted in evaluation of the tenders.

As Prime Consultant, we engaged a structural engineer to design the necessary infrastructure on the roof to support the new cooling towers.
