CASE STUDY: CHATHAM CENTRE

July 2018 Newsletter - Volume 3

First Point Mechanical was tasked to dismantle, remove and replace two 330 ton R-12 water cooled chillers at Chatham Centre, Schaumburg.


THE CHALLENGE

The chilled water plant is located in the penthouse of this 10-story office building


THE SOLUTION

New chillers were disassembled off site and were craned into the penthouse through at 40" wide door.  Inside, the machines were reassembled and installed.


THE RESULT

Onsite project duration was 3 weeks and the entire project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget


First Point installed two 325 ton Carrier 23XRV screw compressor chillers, each equipped with VFDs.  The project also included an upgrade to the existing electrical service.

WELCOME TO THE TEAM!

First Point recently added two new members to our chiller division, with 24-30 years experience each and are both factory trained on ArcticCool by The Arctic Chiller Group and Smardt brand chiller -both of which utilize oil-free, variable speed compressors and magnetic (nearly frictionless) bearings.

LOYOLA ACADEMY
Wilmette, IL

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Reduce energy costs, enhance comfort controls and reduce equipment footprint

THE CHALLENGE
With only two existing thermostats for over 14 classrooms and offices, Loyola Academy was looking for a better way to control the temperature in each classroom and office.  Being located in the basement, the new system also had to be able to dehumidify to maximize its' occupants comfort. 

THE SOLUTION
With limited space above the ceilings, Loyola Academy and First Point's engineers worked together to find a system that would meet both the space limitations and provide additional comfort controls to the teaching staff. 

THE RESULT
First Point Mechanical designed and installed the Mitsubishi VRF system that provides each classroom and office simultaneous heating and cooling .  This project turned two thermostats into 14 individual controlled zones!  This project also freed up mechanical room space and allowed the building to utilize this additional space for storage and classroom use.
