Company: Bardi Mechanical (Atlanta)

Customer: Atlantic Station (Atlanta)

Installation: Two 60-ton, two 70-ton, two 90-ton, and one 120-ton Trane scroll compressor chillers

Completion: March 16, 2014

Objective: To provide cooling to residents of several mixed-use commercial retail and residential buildings in Atlanta.

Work Completed: Atlanta air conditioning repair company Bardi Mechanical recently installed seven chillers on the rooftops of six buildings in Atlantic Station on Atlantic Drive NW, between 17th and 18th streets. The chillers were delivered and placed via helicopter, and the installation required surrounding streets, as well as the entire complex, to close as a safety precaution. The helicopter started setting the first chiller around 8:15 a.m. and finished setting the seventh chiller around 10 a.m. The multi-use buildings include retail space on the ground floor, office spaces on intermediate floors, and residential units or condos on upper floors. The chillers were installed for the residential units in the 17th Street Lofts and the ATLofts buildings.

Quote: “Chillers are very large, bulky, and heavy, and can weigh several tons. The chillers for this installation were flown to the building and delivered by helicopter, so the surrounding area was evacuated out of an abundance of caution. Our team of technicians worked quickly and efficiently to install the chillers on each building.”
