Harris Lanier Building, Atlanta, GA
HVAC Services & Air Conditioning System
HVAC PROJECT SCOPE OF SERVICE
The commercial air conditioning system for five of the six floors in this 120,000 square-foot building depends upon a chiller that provides cold water to the system's central penthouse air conditioning unit. During one fall weekend, this chiller's screw compressor suffered a catastrophic failure, a problem that could not be fixed onsite.
To handle the immediate crisis, Aircond installed a temporary skid-mounted, air-cooled 300-ton chiller in the building's parking lot. This necessitated locating enough flexible HVAC ductwork to reach from the lot to the 7th-floor penthouse equipment room. Since this much ductwork was not immediately available in Atlanta locally, the company had it shipped from Tampa, FL on an emergency basis. In the meantime, Aircond's pipefitters prepared tie-in pipe connections. The HVAC ductwork was then installed and power supplied to the temporary unit in time to have chilled water flowing to the building by late Sunday afternoon. By the following weekend, Aircond, with the client's approval, had provided a new industrial HVAC design, and ordered, rigged, and repiped a new chiller for permanent operation.
HVAC SERVICES OBJECTIVES
To get the air conditioning system back online before about 600 tenant employees arrived to start the work week. If the air conditioning system hadn't been working, they would have had to be sent home.
HVAC & AIR CONDITIONING SOLUTIONS
The entire temporary and permanent air conditioning solution, including industrial HVAC ductwork and HVAC system replacement, was completed without disrupting tenant activities.
