The Allen Institute presented the unique challenge of requiring multiple, diverse mechanical systems in the same facility. CMS provided efficient and cost effective equipment solutions for Allen Institute’s research labs, data center, auditorium, museum, and office space. The central chiller plant was designed utilizing two premium efficiency York YK centrifugal chillers, and a Multistack modular VME heat recovery chiller with the capability to optimize heat rejection to either the building hot water loop or the Marley cooling towers. Two Haakon air handlers with a unique stacked evaporative cooling section provide cooling for the data center without the requirement for mechanical cooling.
