RE Dimond & Associates, Ratio Architects, and Lynch, Harrison, Brumleve, Inc.
Building Project Summary:
RE Dimond was chosen to design a central chilled water plant with thermal storage and a complete chilled water distribution system to fifteen (15) campus buildings for Indiana State University.
The Indiana State University campus needed to replace many old and inefficient steam absorption boilers. A new central chilled water system was the answer the university was needed. RE Dimond designed a campus wide system with a cooling capacity of peak 5275 TONS utilizing electric centrifugal chillers and thermal ice storage. The project included analysis of existing load and distribution systems to optimize the capacity of underground chilled water piping, plus a phasing plan to allow for continued operations during construction of the new facility.
