The Ohio State University / East Regional Chilled Water Plant


Scope of Services
Architect of Record, Programming

26,000 sf / 16,000 tons

This regional chilled water distribution plant is sited to service The Ohio State University's North Academic Quad and future North Student Housing developments with 16,000 tons of chilled water capacity and N+1 redundancy. Because of its sensitive location near academic buildings and a 900 car open parking structure, acoustics and plume considerations are essential. The architectural character and detailing of the plant must also address being adjacent to the Wexner Performing Arts District and a highly visible component from highly trafficked commercial areas.

In collaboration with Leers Weinzapfel & Associates.
