The issues is related to the cooling.


The project pursuing LEED CI is renting an floor area, part of a building with a central cooling plant with a cold water chiller and fan-coils. The cooling however are not sufficient, so the design team is suggesting to the Owner to leave some of the fan-coils connected to the existing chiller and to add an independent VRV systems to satisfy fully the future cooling needs.

The questions is:

Is it possible part of the rented floor areas to be connected to the existing chiller and how (as purchase cold water or…) whereas the remaining areas to be assigned to new VRV system.

Your opinion will be highly appreciated.
