Progress on BYU Absorption Chillers

Many Brigham Young University buildings receive air conditioning/cooling from two-2,000 ton absorption chillers. Zwick Construction was hired to replace these chillers with two new ones, shipped in from China.

In order to complete the project, the team had to remove the existing chiller by cutting it down to a manageable size, then removing the pieces.

Next the team brought in the massive chillers using cranes and large machinery. They hooked the chillers up to the piping systems. The team had to replace this entire system that connects to the “campus loop,” the rest of campus. They also replaced seven pumps that help supply water to the system.

In the meantime, BYU has a back-up chiller to meet the needs of the university.


Thanks to the team who has been working on the project.

Guided by our core values, Zwick Construction delivers impressive projects of all kinds in many industries.
