Cal State Long Beach, MSX Utilities Infrastructure Upgrade CM← Back to Projects
A campus wide piping overhaul delivers more efficient heating and hot water.
The $26 million MSX Utilities Infrastructure Upgrade project included the expansion of over 5,600 LF of existing Reclaimed Water systems in the north and south of the campus. This entailed installation of pump systems to service the north campus, south campus, and central plant RW systems. It also corrected and upgraded drainage deficiencies throughout the campus at various locations and upgraded 1,800 LF of Storm Drain piping at the central campus.
The project also included the replacement of over 16,400 LF of existing direct buried ductile iron ‘south loop’ heating hot water distribution piping. This included a pre-insulated welded steel system, engineered expansion loops, anchors and leak detection system. The project also replaced the existing chillers with two 400-ton chillers and replaced the existing chilled water, condenser water and heating hot water pumps. The Library Chiller Plant had HVAC and lighting upgrades completed during this project.
