TEG was selected by the City of Nashville to provide design and project administration services for construction of a new steam and chilled waterline extension and service connection to the Music City Center (MCC) under construction in Nashville, TN.
The new services extend from the existing steam, condensate and chilled water mains and the design included modifications to the Energy Generating Facility (EGF) to improve distribution system hydraulics and meet the requirements of the system expansion. A new 12″ high pressure steam main, 6″ condensate return, 24″ chilled water supply and return mains were installed from the existing mains and extending to the future site.
The service requirements for the MCC are estimated to be 47,500 lb/hr of steam and 5,820 tons of cooling.
TEG was responsible for the interface with the building’s engineer who is designing the building’s decoupled thermal transfer systems. Chilled service began in April 2012, and steam service began in July 2012. Both design services and construction were completed below budget and ahead of schedule.
