McLean & Schultz: Structural Engineering & Architecture




This design build project for the University of California, Irvine is comprised of an existing central plant chiller extension and a cogeneration addition. Both projects constructed in tandem and closely coordinated maximized resources and achieved greater efficiency and savings to UCI. All the structures were classified and designed as essential (hazardous) facilities and abided by UCI Detailed Project Program in addition to the California Building Code. Four new cooling tower cells were added to the north of the existing cooling towers. The new box-like structure housing the cooling towers is a one story building approximately 40 feet tall. Comprised of concrete roof slab and walls, some of which are partially retaining, it is founded on a mat-foundation system.
