Project Overview

Boston University now boasts a state-of-the-art multi-functional 250-seat studio theater complex and production facility housing space for scenery, prop, and costume shops, as well as faculty offices, design labs and teaching spaces, therefore uniting the theater community by combining the previously separated design and production spaces with the theater and opera performance programs.

Solution
Continuing their established relationship with BOND, TG Gallagher was brought on the team to install the HVAC system in the new theater. At the heart of the theater is a modular chiller and boiler plant that houses two 125 ton chillers, three CW pumps, three CHW pumps, two HW pumps, one FC pump, two boilers, all piping and accessories and a fully packaged control system with a refrigeration monitoring system.  The entire chiller plant was prefabricated at TG Gallagher’s prefab facility and was rigged on site in four packaged sections.  Taking the initiative to prefabricate to such an extent allowed TG Gallagher to complete the entire mechanical room offsite in a controlled environment.  This approach improves safety and quality control, decreases waste and simplifies the project logistics.
