Brandt | Brooke Army Medical Center Central Plant
At Brandt, we are proud to do commercial construction work that supports communities. In San Antonio, Texas, we assisted in major upgrades to the Brooke Army Medical Center’s Central Plant. The 2.1 million-dollar project involved removing five 1,000-ton chillers and replacing them with five 1,200-ton chillers and associated infrastructure to help the hospital keep up with expanding needs.
A Complex Operation
We replaced the hospital’s aging chillers, and then replaced existing cooling towers, pumps, specialties, piping and even boilers. Our full-service MEP (Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) functionality was put to the test during the Brooke Army Medical Center project; our teams worked together like a well-oiled machine, and the project was a sound success.
Keeping Services Online
Already a complex commercial construction operation, the project’s challenges were compounded by the fact that the hospital’s services meant that it must remain 100% open and operational throughout the course of the undertaking. Thanks to our talented teams here at Brandt, we did our job without negatively impacting the hospital’s functionality or efficiency.
The team was comprised entirely of Brandt commercial construction professionals and teams providing MEP services, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as the facility owner. We started in April of 2009, and wrapped up our services at the Army Medical Center in April of 2011, right on time. The mechanical/plumbing volume of the project totaled $2,150,000.
Thanks to the employees who made this project a success through hard work, dedication and preparation. Our teams are the reason we at Brandt have been successful in the commercial construction services industry for more than 60 years. We continue to aspire to produce work that exceeds project expectation, and our case studies prove that we have the capability and experience to do so, time after time.
At Brandt Construction, we pride ourselves on implementing projects like this one that make a difference to the larger community. To learn more about our projects and processes, check out our website or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
