Maumee, OH – CMS Corporation (CMS) announced today it has been awarded a $15.3M Repair Chiller Plant project at Building 2000 at Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) Lackland – Kelly Annex in Texas. This project falls under the Air Force’s Regional Engineering and Construction (RE&C) Central Region Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract.
Under this design-bid-build (D-B-B) contract, CMS will repair the central cooling plant servicing the 16th Air Force Headquarters Building. Repairs will include replacing 2 inoperable 485-ton chillers, two 500-ton chillers nearing the end of service life, and the control system for the plant (e.g., pumps, chillers, monitoring/metering devices, etc.). This also includes replacing the chilled water distribution piping and pumps, metering devices, motor control centers, electrical support infrastructure, and all associated controls. Additionally, three cooling towers and the associated pump system, three boilers and ancillaries, and hot and chilled, as well as steam piping systems to each mechanical room, will also be replaced.
The building will remain occupied throughout construction; therefore, CMS will conduct all work with minimal interference to mission-critical 24/7 operations. In addition, CMS will provide a temporary HVAC system housed in two large semi-trailers to maintain building heating and cooling while renovation work is in progress.
“We look forward to starting up this project in the San Antonio area and are honored to continue serving the United States Air Force,” stated CMS CEO and Chairman, Ernest Enrique, PE. “We are pleased to announce that the completed project will comply with UFC 1-200-02 High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirements.”
