VBFA served as the Prime for this LDS temple project located in Accra, Ghana. Challenges include an extremely harsh climate with high humidity, high temperature, marine climate and harmattan (a dry, dusty easterly / northeasterly wind on the West African coast). Due to this harsh environment, mechanical systems can break down within years and also with the lack of in-country expertise to repair and maintain these systems adds to the challenges of this project.
We served as the Prime and provided the engineering design to replace and upgrade the air cooled chillers in the temple, office area and the ancillary buildings, as well as installing dedicated outside air handlers for filtration. The mechanic system in the ancillary building was completely removed and replaced with a chilled water fan coiled system.
