2010 QSCB Project
Facility Maintenance Chiller and Boiler Replacement Project


Project Details
Introduction:
To improve central energy plant operations, the QSCB Chiller and Boiler Replacement Program will provide new energy-efficient equipment at 29 elementary and secondary campuses, replacing either air-cooled chillers or gas-fired boilers, or a combination of both systems.
Planning Estimate 1:
$ 6,570,000.00


Phase I
Introduction:
The Chiller and Boiler Replacement Project Phase I provides replacement chillers at five elementary school campuses including: Coker, Dellview, Walzem, Stahl, and East Terrell Hills Elementary Schools. The life expectancy of these central plant systems is typically 12-15 years for an air-cooled chiller and 25–30 years for a gas-fired boiler. Additionally, chiller/water pumps, filter feeders, expansion tanks, and central plant indoor and outdoor lighting will be incorporated into this project to improve the overall efficiency, performance, and operation of the central plants. Phase I was paid with 2007 Bond Funds.
