Students were asked to provide a project proposal to remove the existing R-22/R407F refrigeration system including all refrigeration equipment, related equipment and materials, controls, electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and related systems inside the existing refrigeration room and the removal of the exterior cooling tower. Construction of the new R-513 indirect 1375-ton refrigeration system inside the existing refrigeration room, and new exterior cooling tower. Work includes demolition, excavation, concrete, refrigeration, equipment, pumps, piping, insulation, refrigerant, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, controls, motor control center, and building modifications.
When the project is completed, the new refrigeration system will feed the three existing indoor ice rinks and the new outdoor oval rink (existing oval rink is being replaced under a different contract). This is the same building where USA beat the Russia in the 1980 Miracle on Ice game.
