Module 7 from far away

Leers Weinzapfel Associates competition-winning design for a chilled water plant creates an attractive gateway presence, while retaining maximum use of the site for a new varsity baseball field. The screen wall around the chiller plant celebrates the industrial nature of the structure while giving it a distinct identity. By day, the corrugated perforated stainless steel screen is a shimmering, silvery object, by night, the building becomes a translucent glowing object. This major element of infrastructure is a memorable, elegant form, set in a vibrant green landscape.  Mod 7 is expanding its capacity with 10,000 tons of new steam-driven chillers and associated cooling towers, plus capacity for future 10,000 additional tons.
