The U.Va. Medical Centerís East Chiller Plant is
located adjacent to Lee Street. Currently, there
is a need to replace five 1,200 ton chillers
(6,000 total tons) in the North Chiller Plant
that are at the end of their useful life.
When completed, the chiller plant will supply cold water
to the medical center.
In preparation for the plantís construction, a
retaining wall will be erected around the site.
In addition, Crispell Drive and Lee
Street will be realigned with Roosevelt Brown Boulevard
to streamline traffic flow to the Health System facilities
and parking structures.
The new East Chiller Plant will provide a building shell for a 10,000 ton plant with 6,000
tons of initial installed capacity in the form of three, 2,000 ton chillers.
