About the Project
The Target Financial projects include Building B Cooling Tower Replacement, LED Parking Garage Lighting, IT Room Metering Buildings A & B, Interior Remodel - Buildings A & B, EPO Switch - Buildings A & B, Building A Cooling Tower Replacement and Energy Analysis. We served as the Engineer of Record for these projects. The Cooling Tower projects are the only design projects to have been reviewed by the City of Tempe and have received their permits without comments from the plan review staff.
Many of the associated projects required systems remain operational during all phases of construction. The Cooling Tower Replacement needed to have 3 methods of redundancy at all times. In order to accomplish this task the original tower was kept in place and operational until the new one was installed. A temporary chiller was kept on-site in case of power failure along with multiple electrical feeds, a temporary backup generator and UPS power.
