UAB Central Utilities Plant #1
Following Hardy’s renovation, UAB’s central plant #1 was the second largest hospital chilled water plant in the USA. Hardy was the prime contractor and our contract with UAB included all subcontractor disciplines (Electrical, Structural, Concrete, Insulation, Controls, Painting and Roofing). The mechanical portion was self-performed. Hardy installed a new system including (4) new 2,000 ton chillers, (13) 6,000+ gpm pumps, (17) cooling towers, various motor control centers (MCC’s), electrical, piping, and all structural supporting systems. The final contract value reached approximately $10,300,000.00. This project won an ABC Excellence in Construction Award.
“The work Hardy performed was delivered on time, in budget, and was of a consistently high quality, meeting or exceeding the requirements of the construction documents. Hardy worked well with UAB plant personnel to coordinate construction activities with plant operations requirements.” John M. Slaughter, Jr., PE, UAB
