Southland Industries, one of the nation's largest MEP building systems experts providing engineering, construction, service and energy service solutions, was recently awarded the Los Angeles Valley College project located in Valley Glen, California. In addition to Southland, the design-build project team includes QDG, Pankow Builders, Cupertino Electric, and KPFF Engineers.
As the prime contractor, Southland will be providing upgrades to the existing central plant, as well as adding an 8,000-ton chilled water thermal energy storage tank and replacing chilled and condenser water pumps. Southland will also be replacing the existing 900-ton chiller with a 1,000-ton chiller. In order to enhance the flow characteristics and distribution to campus buildings, the existing chilled water system will be tied together through a north piping loop.
The project‘s design phase began in January 2016, with construction expected to commence in August 2016. Project completion is slated for November 2017.
