Central Cooling Plant for The University of the South
Sewanee, TN

Client: The University of the South
           Sewanee, TN

This beautiful small liberal arts college campus, located in the rural foothills, has a quite stable inventory of stone-clad buildings as well as a very progressive desire to conserve energy. As part of the early planning for the college's new dining hall, a study was done to investigate the value of a chilled water plant to serve the heart of the campus, resulting in the construction of this facility in 1999-2000 for a cost of $1 million. The plant is located on the ground floor of an existing building.

Mechanical and Electrical Profile:

This is the most recent, and smallest, campus cooling plant designed by OGCB, Inc. Other central cooling plant design assignments have been for University of Memphis; University of Tennessee, Memphis; University of West Florida; Pensacola Junior College; State Technical Institute - Memphis; and the 2,000 ton addition to the NASA Launch Complex at Cape Kennedy.
