NEW WINTER PROJECTS

In fact, every winter we successfully carry out about a dozen large maintenance and repair jobs. This winter will be no different; many projects will involve chiller plants and cooling towers across both campuses, including major maintenance for chillers at the Center for Health Professions, and the Health Care Consultation Center II. Additionally, the new chilled water plant at Parking Structure A will be connected to the campus Thermal Energy Storage water system. This is especially exciting as it means we are that much closer to having that chiller plant up and running, and with that an increase of 40% in chilled water supply for our USC cooling systems.

Along with projects focused on chiller plants, this winter our FMS technicians will administer repairs and maintenance on air handlers and an electrical manhole. Please refer to the detailed list below for all of our important upcoming winter projects:

  • Hughes Aircraft Electrical Engineering Center (EEB) – Replacement of rooftop air handler
  • Frank R. Seaver Science Center (SSC) –Replacement of chiller
  • Center for Health Professions (CHP) – 10 year tear down major regular maintenance on chiller
  • Health Care Consultation Center II (HCT) – 10 year tear down major regular maintenance on chiller
  • Eileen and Kenneth T. Norris Dental Science Center (DEN) – Replacement of the building electrical service
  • Waite Phillips Hall of Education (WPH) – Replacement of the building electrical service
  • Ethel Percy Andrus Gerontology Center (GER) – Refurbishment of the basement building air handlers
  • Annual cooling tower cleaning/refurbishing (about 15 cooling towers on both campuses)
  • Utility Projects (All on McClintock Avenue):
  • Rebuild electrical manhole number 35
  • Connect the new chilled water plant (PSA) to the campus Thermal Energy Storage chilled water system
  • Extend the steam loop across McClintock for the new CMSE building
  • Install new 16” chilled water lines under the existing storm drain culvert in McClintock
