The World Bank - Main Complex
The prestigious headquarters building of The World Bank represents a significant achievement in mechanical construction.
The two-million-square-foot facility features two new 13-story buildings and renovation of two existing 13-story buildings. In addition to office space, the buildings include executive dining areas, an executive board room, print shop, cafeteria, credit union, computer rooms and a fully-integrated DDC automation system.
The new buildings also have five levels below-grade, while the existing structures have three floors below-ground. Extensive preplanning and coordination of trades was critical to ensure minimal disruption to the Bank's on-going operations. The construction package includes both the new and existing buildings.
A centralized chiller plant was installed five levels belowground to service all four buildings, and includes five 900-ton centrifugal chillers and eight cooling towers rated at 1930 GPM per cell.
