    VA Central Iowa Health Care System Chiller Replacement

This project consists of relocating one existing chiller and associated support equipment (transfer pumps, automatic control valves, controls, piping, and electrical systems, BAS, etc.) and providing space for additional chillers and associated support equipment. The design takes into consideration future chilled water consumption based on foreseen additions and renovations as well as appropriate phasing so as not to disturb activities occurring throughout the Medical Center. A new utility tunnel was added to support the additional chilled water pipes; by taking advantage of the topography of the site (steep slopes) the top of the utility tunnel doubles as a pedestrian bridge, allowing both staff and patients an opportunity to enjoy the campus.
