UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA GATEWAY COMPLEX PHILADELPHIA, PA


The need for increased chilled-water capacity to serve a growing campus prompted the University of Pennsylvania to plan a new facility in a highly visible location in West Philadelphia along the Schuylkill River at the University Avenue Bridge. The site, previously used for athletic fields, was one of the few remaining open spaces on campus large enough to accommodate the new structure. The design concept of the new Mod VII Chiller Plant encompasses both the building and site. A continuous perforated stainless steel screen wall in a fluid elliptical form wraps the chiller plant. The shape echoes the curves of the river and roads, and the material resonates with nearby industrial structures along the river. The perforated corrugated stainless steel screen veils the building, making it a shimmering, silvery object by day, and reveals the rooftop chillers above. By night, the building becomes a translucent glowing object, partially exposing the equipment within. PHASE I AND PHASE I-A The 60,000 SF footprint of the 30,000-ton chiller-plant equipment building and the specific shape and orientation of the baseball field required a combined building and site concept. The compact elliptical form adjusts to the curves of the river and roads with no distinct “face,” following along the site boundary to make room for the baseball field. By extending the screen enclosure beyond the boundaries of the plant itself, vehicle service areas are contained at the two ends of the structure and the plant inside can be built in phases. The two large elements are thus nested together within the constraints of the parcel to create an optimal setting for each. PHASE II With construction recently compeleted, the second phase of the project adds an additional 22,750 GSF and 10,000 tons of chilled water to the existing facility. The facility addition is entirely contained within the original metal screen wall from Phase I. Another 10,000 tons of chilled water equipment can be located within the building and on the roof in the future.

THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY EAST REGIONAL CHILLED WATER PLANT COLUMBUS, OH


This iconic new structure introduces a large, critically important infrastructure facility to a mature campus, preserves an important green space at the campus edge, and frames the gateway for a new campus entry. A sculptural solution for the 15,000 ton chilled water plant is integrated into the arts sculpture green area along the university’s east campus edge. The result is an elegant approach that fits well with the urban site and its surrounding context. The gem-like structure’s scale, which responds to the older brick buildings around it, is modulated by its composition of two offset volumes — a lower, two-story, glazed rectangular volume that is veiled and diaphanous on the exterior, with semi-transparent views from the interior looking out. The upper level; a lifted square volume, open to the sky, uses perforated metal walls of resin-based, coated aluminum to provide a cost-effective water cooling tower enclosure. The walls are designed with two perforated densities, and together with narrow open slots achieve the combined 50% open area for ventilation required for the equipment. The perforated copper-colored aluminum enclosure serves as a new interpretation of the brick used prolifically on this and many other US college campuses, adding aesthetic variety to its built surroundings. Designed to support the densely packed equipment layout, both the upper and lower volume respond to unique engineering requirements, creating zones of machine activity. A linear zone is created within the lower, two-story enclosed rectangular volume with mezzanine, and a squared zone within the upper screened volume. Both volumes are gently illuminated at night to provide site lighting for the surrounding pedestrian zones and to continue the dialogue between the forms and their contrasting materials. The glowing crystalline lower volume is illuminated from the inside. The repeating pattern of clear glass and translucent fritted glass in three frit densities and four sizes offers a consistent variability. The new LEED Certified chilled water plant will significantly improve overall campus central plant efficiency.

PRINCETON UNIVERSITY CHILLED WATER PLANT EXPANSION PRINCETON, NJ


Princeton University required an expansion of their existing chilled water plant at a highly visible location along Elm Drive on the major vehicular entrance to the center of campus. The University also wished to include a large thermal energy storage tank in an appropriate setting. Our Chilled Water Plant Expansion and Thermal Energy Master Plan documented the proposed changes required to increase the physical plant’s capacity to service several new projects planned for the main campus in the next twenty years. A three phased plan of expansion was developed that would bring additional capacity on line incrementally. Elements included an eventual three new chillers within the plant expansion, an eventual ten to twelve new cooling towers, an eventual additional new chiller within the existing plant, and a large thermal energy storage tank. Siting was developed to consolidate required piping for the overall project and to minimize the impact of large new structures on the campus. The new chilled water plant connects to the existing plant and existing electrical mezzanine. The new plant uses the scope of the site to connect to grade at both the ground floor chiller equipment level and the office mezzanine. A new control room to service both the existing and new buildings has been constructed within the existing building and immediately adjacent to the new building to provide visual oversight from a single location. The new structure includes an upper floor to contain requisite pump and heat exchange equipment as well as electrical equipment. The new chiller plant building brings natural light into each equipment floor from both the north and the south sides through a system of translucent and fritted clear glass panels in a strong contrast to the long uninterrupted enclosure wall of local stone along Elm Drive. The building massing screens the rooftop cooling towers beyond and provides an aesthetically strong corner to the larger service precinct.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS NORTH CHILLER PLANT AMHERST, MA


The purpose of the new North Chiller Plant is to provide increased Chilled water and Condenser water capacity to support future expansion of the chilled water distribution system to additional campus buildings. The existing Polymer Chiller plant facility is to be replaced by a new district chiller plant with expanded capacity of 6,000 tons total. The original plant was a campus regional chilled water plant that serves several campus buildings, including Engineering Lab II building, Computer Science Building and Conte Polymer Research Building. It also serves the adjacent GRC CHW distribution system via a plate and frame heat exchanger and pump distribution system located within the plant building. Located to the east of the existing Polymer Chiller Plant building, the new North Chiller Plant building will have an approximate area of 10,592 SF. The new plant is sized to house five water-cooled chillers, new and relocated chilled and condenser water pumps, and new electrical distribution equipment. The new plant will also be designed to support new roof-mounted cooling towers and an air-cooled chiller. New electrical service will be provided for the new plant. Existing building and site plumbing lines will be relocated and new plumbing lines will be provided for the new plant. The North Chiller Plant will be heated by new hot water unit heaters and associated piping and controls and a new ventilation system will be provided. The new Plant will have a north-south orientation, reflecting the campus grid. Built over the Eastern portion of the existing Polymer Plant, the design was proposed to remain outside a view shed from the center of campus to the Northwest, referred to as “The Feather” in the Campus Master Plan. The plant’s parallelogram configuration frames existing campus views through nearby Engineering Lab 2. The new plant’s prow extends approximately 20’ south of the existing plant’s south wall. The northern edge extends approximately 20’ beyond the northern limit of Engineering Lab 2. The existing plant will continue to operate during the new shell construction and during the installation of new mechanical and electrical systems; it will then be demolished, once equipment to be re-used has been relocated to the new plant. As part of the engineer and sciences quadrant of the campus, the building will put “technology on display” through the glazed base of the building. The energy efficient insulated panel system above is punctuated with channel glass strips, illuminating the upper equipment platform. The glazed base is highest on the north to allow vehicle access through a glazed bi-fold door; the glazing head slopes along the east, south and west for reduced solar gain on those orientations. 1

HARVARD UNIVERSITY DISTRICT ENERGY FACILITY BOSTON, MA


The new 55,000 sf District Energy Facility (DEF) is an opportunity to set the stage for a state-of-the-art, cost effective, and sustainable utility generation and distribution system for Harvard’s Allston campus that also makes a significant contribution to the urban design of the campus. In addition to the many benefits of a district energy facility the construction of the new DEF will be an opportunity to contribute to the design of infrastructure in the urban and campus form. Formerly relegated to the “backyard” of a campus with little visibility, today’s infrastructure plants are more centrally located to serve multiple buildings in a district and face the pressures of relating in scale to nearby structures, and mitigating noise and air quality. An innovative approach is required to celebrate their energy and robust beauty and make them a good neighbor. The new District Energy Facility will be the first new building to be completed on the Allston campus and as such, carries the responsibility of setting a high standard of quality and design, and of creating a visible demonstration of sustainable practice in building, landscape, and storm water management. Flexibility and innovation are key goals for the design which will provide chilled water, hot water, and electricity to the new campus. Resiliency will be a feature with equipment elevated above flood levels, black start cogeneration, and microgrid integrations. A thermal energy storage tank supports efficient equipment use. The new District Energy Facility will be in place by mid 2019 to provide utilities to the new Science and Engineering Center before its completion. The site for the District Energy Facility at a pivotal location in the development area south of Western Avenue makes the facility a highly visible presence from all sides. It is a permanent support facility and therefore its building and site design complements the future campus evolution, including open space, academic buildings, and research and development space.

MEDICAL CENTER COMPANY COMBINED HEAT & POWER PLANT CLEVELAND, OH


At a gateway location on campus, the highly-energyefficient / low-emission combined heat and power plant (CHP) is technically state-of-the-art and architecturally bold. The Medical Center Company (MCCo) is a not-for-profit shared district utility infrastructure that provides steam, chilled water and electricity to its member base including Case Western Reserve University, the University Hospitals of Cleveland Case Medical Center and others at reduced cost. The new plant will be constructed over the basement of an existing coal fired plant to provide connection to nearby cooling towers and an electrical substation. Consolidating the energy source to one primary supplier helps use fuel efficiently, saves money through economies of scale, allows for more effective equipment maintenance, and frees up space in each of the buildings that would have required separate heating and cooling supply sources. A district energy system optimizes the use of fuels, power and resources within the community, saving money and operating in a more environmentally friendly manner. Developing a new plant building of proper scale, proportion and material was the architectural design challenge for this project. As the entire MCCo site will be developed over two or more distinct phases, it is important to create a unified concept that facilitates future additions while retaining appropriate scale and site distribution. The site of the MCCo existing facility is quite prominent. Fronting on the corner of Adelbert Road and Circle Drive, the site is visible from the Cornell Road Bridge, Adelbert Bridge, the Murray Hill neighborhood, the nearby Case Western Reserve University recreational fields and more distant resident halls in the Murray Hill neighborhood. The site is also visible from the rail line and the RTA University Circle Station at Cedar Glen Parkway. Given the prominence of the site, and its position as a gateway to the campus, the architecture is educational and transparent. Capacity: Cogen - 15 to 30 MW initial 45 MW full build out. 65,000 lb/h of 150 PSI saturated steam capacity, Steam driven chiller at 2,700 tons

TUFTS UNIVERSITY CENTRAL ENERGY PLANT MEDFORD, MA


Set into a dramatically sloping hillside at the edge of the campus, the new Central Energy Plant puts trigeneration energy efficiencies on display. The low ground form building integrates building and landscape to reduce the apparent mass of the large infrastructure installation in its prominent location. Two solid flanking walls of grey/beige brick emerge from the treed hillside and frame a transparent wall to the street revealing the chilled water, steam, hot water, and electrical power equipment within. On the downhill side, service vehicles have access to the building from the city street. On the uphill side, the campus driveway is at the elevation of the building roof which will be developed as a green space with spectacular views of the city and distant landscape below. Neighborhood concerns for sound pollution prompted careful attention to acoustical control. In addition to sound separation and attenuation within the plant, the upper part of the street façade is constructed as a metal panel acoustical baffle which reduces equipment sound, allows airflow to the rooftop cooling towers, and partially screens the equipment from view. Some of the new facility’s features include: • A cogeneration plant, which will provide 4 MWs of power, reduce energy costs for the Medford campus by approximately 20%. The university is taking a fresh approach to greenhouse emission analysis to be posted in the near future. • 3 new high-efficiency steam boilers, capable of 50,000 to 90,000 lb/h will replace the less efficient boilers in the existing plant to be demolished. • Efficient chillers and cooling towers, 3,000 tons at full buildout, will provide air conditioning to the new Science and Engineering Complex, Tisch, and can be expanded to serve additional buildings in the future. • Increased reliability of the electrical power supply to the Medford campus. • Landscaping with native plants. The location of the Campus Energy Plant in the campus Science and Technology Corridor facing a main city street maximizes the opportunity to convey the University’s commitment to sustainability to the city and the campus. Interpretive elements will highlight the energy savings features of the building and celebrate this important infrastructure element as a positive contribution to its environment.

3. HONORS & AWARDS


The new Hsinta Power plant is essential to the growth of the region, but its configuration must balance the production of clean energy with wetland protection, and the creation of educational, cultural, and recreational resources for the people of the region. Our vision is a plant in a park with a powerful landmark identity. Three rising organic forms contain the multi-story turbine halls and stacks. An enclosing ring of supporting work spaces define an oval precinct with service courtyard. Outside the secure plant perimeter, the surrounding park, with expanded wetlands and mangrove islands, provides a variety of bird viewing experiences and visits to the historic salt works structures. Between the plant precinct and wetlands, a new topography of dune fields offers height to view the adjacent landscape and sheltered areas for walking and biking. The excavation of a broad semi-circular recreational basin along the canal edge provides landfill for the dune field, creates a vibrant water activity area for families, and connects the park to the harbor to the north. Three main power generators are iconic markers for the energy plant and park. Wrapped in perforated metal screening rising to the top of the stacks and descending into the retention basin, they allow glimpses of the equipment within from the park and water. The ring of supporting spaces- administration, workshops, staff housing and restaurant, and park visitor area- framing the service courtyard with lower sheds and tanks is clad in a high-performance envelope of electrical generating solar glass, fritted glass, and deep exterior horizontal metal sunshades. The ring is punctuated by through openings for natural ventilation. The service yard is organized around landscape areas providing shade and orientation and larger plant buildings support green roofs. Courtyard functions are visible to visitors and staff from the ring building. The new Hsinta Ecological Power Plant design lays out a clear roadmap for reducing the environmental impact of Plant operations. Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction analysis will be a primary driver in determining the specific Plant equipment. The Plant will undergo a smart design process incorporating life cycle costing, integrated design, and energy modeling to ensure a broad range of sustainable design and operations opportunities are vetted and that performance requirements are achieved in a cost-effective manner.
