FAA – Air Route Traffic Control Center Central Plant Mechanical Upgrade

Olathe, KS

Stanger Industries was selected by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to perform a major renovation of the HVAC system at their Midwest Regional Air Route Traffic Control Center. Stanger removed two 600-ton centrifugal chillers and all existing pumps from the facility. Stanger then installed two, 660-ton chillers with ozone friendly refrigerant, as well as new pumps. The worked involved tapping pressured piping systems utilizing “stopple” fittings and tapping procedures. In addition, Stanger rebuilt four existing cooling towers. All work was performed in a very sensitive, high security environment. The facility had to maintain operations throughout the project thus the work was phased so that it did not interfere with daily operations.
