Satellite Central Utility Building (SCUB) Expansion

GES provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design services for the expansion of an existing Satellite Central Utility Building (SCUB). The new facility supports the Physical Science Complex, Phase I (PCS) as well as planned future phases, and the five surrounding residence halls. The new PSC and the residence halls are served by a central chilled water cooling plant located in the Computer and Space Sciences Building Wing 4 (CSS-SCUB). The existing chilled water plant had a current capacity of 550 tons, which was upgraded during Phase I to an approximately 3,850 tons.
