Downtown Austin Chiller Capacity Expansion
Encotech conducted the initial engineering analysis to determine whether Austin Energy could consider adding a new chiller plant to the downtown system at the existing Austin Convention Center space. After our analysis indicated the feasibility of doing so, Encotech used its expertise and intimate knowledge of the project to deliver the most efficient option for Austin Energy.
Encotech’s expertise resulted in a design that required no additional strengthening of the existing structure. Encotech was able to design a system that sidestepped the existing structure’s limitations and leveraged its excess capacity in order to reduce required retrofitting. Our design is presently being implemented and the new plant will be online in the within the next several months.
