Brooke Army Medical Center Central Plant
(SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS) – At Brandt, we are proud to do 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 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 boilers. Our teams worked together like a well-oiled machine, demonstrating the success of our integrated complete mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) services.
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 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 Brooke Army Medical Center in April of 2011, right on time.
