Cooling Tower No. 2 Replacement

The University of Texas at Austin

A new fiber-reinforced, plastic four-cell, 33,400 GPM cooling tower was built in the same location on The University of Texas at Austin campus as an old, previously demolished cooling tower. The concrete basin that supported the old tower was abandoned in place, and the new cooling tower is supported on new foundations and a structural steel superstructure — all constructed within the confines of the concrete basin. The area around the cooling tower site was congested with buildings, pipe racks and mechanical equipment. The JQ team used laser scanning to document locations of existing components that would affect the layout of the cooling tower and the new support structure.
