Univision Cooling Tower
The Univision Cooling Tower project is a Structural Steel project that focused on the creation of a top class cooling system for one of Univision’s Miami locations. They needing this system for not only the the expansion of the building, but for sensitive technology equipment. The enhancement will give Univision much better control and maintenance of the temperature(s) inside their building. Allowing other systems to run cooler and allowing staff to feel much more comfortable. Cooling Tower(s) are very useful in the event of failure in the HVAC its’ design gives quick and convenient access to the large HVAC allowing for repairs to be effected quickly. They also useful in easily grouping and linking HVAC units.
This Structural Steel project required proper planning to coordinate and execute. This project involved erecting a Cooling Tower, Chiller Room, fabricating and installing supports for the pipes and even fabricating and installing crossover for the pipe structures. We made use of the large crane to haul the heavy load to the roof of the building where we would be installing the fabricated metal pieces. Once on the roof we began assembly and welding of the steel structures like the Embeds and HSS tubes. We did not install the HVAC but all the ground work for it’s easy installation was made. We were able to complete and install the cooling system even in an environment with a roof structure that had uneven sections. This meant many sections would have to be adjusted to ensure a clean and straightforward pipe flow.
As usual there were some additions to this project, but those are out side of the original scope of the project. Those of you familiar with the construction industry will understand the concept of Change Orders. Contact us if you would like to install a Cooling Tower on your facility.
