University of Massachusetts Amherst is the Commonwealths’ flagship campus and has been recognized for continuously incorporating sustainability principles into its district energy systems. The newest project known as the North Chiller Plant is prominently located in a visible portion of the engineering and technology area of campus and features a unique campus-plan supportive and equipment-friendly parallelogram footprint and modern envelope to accompany its LEED design. Many options for siting and configuration were vetted in the design to arrive at an optimum solution. This presentation explores the process of balancing efficient architectural context with operability and maintenance.
