Improved Central Utility Plant for Resort Casino

Central Utility Plant, Foxwoods Resort Casino

Keeping an entertainment destination open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is a daunting challenge, especially when it’s critical that round-the-clock customers and staff enjoy a clean and comfortable environment — and Foxwoods Resort Casino is no exception.  A complex of six casinos, the resort covers an area of 4,700,000 square feet on the Mashantucket Pequot Indian Reservation.

BVH addressed several problems occurring in the resort’s central utility plant. Originally hired to commission 28 rooftop air handling units, BVH also commissioned a 13,000-ton chilled water plant with a four-cell, 14,000-ton open cooling tower; an interconnection project to join the new and existing chilled water plants; and the plant’s centrifugal and absorber chillers. Our work addressed several problems related to chilled water flow and control, cooling towers, heat exchangers, and pump control.

As a result, BVH has helped Foxwoods maintain a safe and comfortable environment for 1.7 million square feet of new hotel tower, casino and retail space, which is beneficial to creating a positive and safe experience for visitors and staff.
