Delivery Process: Job Order Contracting/Design-assist

Construction Type: Mission Critical

Total Square Footage: 126,572 SF Building

Caliente has completed multiple projects at the Maricopa County Forensic Science under our JOC with the County. Included in the work were two major mechanical and electrical modifications which included installation of a 1250KW exterior generator and construction of a new electrical room with redundant cooling. Another aspect of the project was removing existing single sump cooling towers and replacing with two stainless steel Evapco cooling towers and chiller. The lab is used for processing DNA evidence and houses a morgue. It is a 24x7x365 facility and could not have any outage of power. We provided temporary cooling during renovation/replacement of the chillers by constructing temporary piping on the exterior of the building, running four floors to the roof of the building and a temporary chiller was located on the street outside of the building during the work. Caliente provide design-assist on this project.
