McKenneyâ€™s, Inc., Installs Rooftop Chiller Water Plant at a Colocation Data Center in Atlanta, GA
Online PR News – 24-December-2017 – Atlanta, GA – McKenneyâ€™s, Inc., the Southeastâ€™s most trusted name in facility construction, constructed and installed a rooftop chilled water (CHW) plant, piping and ducting at a new 35,000-square-foot colocation data center in downtown Atlanta.
McKenneyâ€™s had to install completely redundant piping with eight-inch mains and 12-foot-tall steel supports for the plant consisting of a pre-manufactured pump house and three 350-ton air cooled chillers. The major electrical and mechanical equipmentâ€”as well as piping and supportsâ€”had to be lifted to the roof during one weekend with a shared crane. Working on an elevated platform, the team had only 10 days for installation after pipe placement on the roof and no option for â€śstick-buildingâ€ť the piping system.

To minimize safety risks, the McKenneyâ€™s team spent nearly 1,500 hours manufacturing completely assembled headers including engineered steel supports in advance at its fabrication facility. McKenneyâ€™s 16-member crew then safely lifted all of the equipment and piping to the roof.
The team completed the installation in less than a weekâ€”with no major safety concernsâ€”allowing the CHW system to start up on schedule.
