Washington University Dormitory

September 03, 2008 |

Haberberger Inc., a full-service mechanical contracting company based in St. Louis, recently completed work on the Village East Dormitory for Washington University. The new four-story apartment-style dormitory is located on the university's Danforth Campus.

Contracted by BSI, Haberberger was in charge of installing 60 air handling and fan coil units, a 700-ton chiller, a cooling tower, and underground site utilities for the dorm. Installing the chiller proved to be a difficult aspect of the project, as the team had to disassemble the chiller into three major pieces before it could be lowered by a crane into a subgrade garage and carted to the chiller room. Each piece of the chiller was then lowered another 6 feet onto its concrete pad and reassembled by Haberberger's crew.
