Wisconsin Veterans Home, Chiller Plant

Union Grove, WI

Main entrance, Wisconsin Veterans Home at Union Grove


A new chiller plant was installed in the existing Education Building at the 500-acre Union Grove Campus. The plant serves eight buildings through nearly two miles of direct buried piping.


  • The plant consists of two chillers, equivalent cooling tower capacity, and site piping to eight campus buildings.
  • The plant was designed for an ultimate capacity of 1,650 tons. The initial installation included two 450-ton centrifugal chillers, primary and secondary chilled water pumps, condenser water pumps, and counterflow cooling towers.
  • Electrical work included four 160-volt feeders from the power plant to a 480-volt transformer to serve the mechanical equipment.
