CONNECTICUT CONVENTION CENTER FACILITIES BACKGROUND
The Capital City Economic Development Authority (CCEDA) is the developer and owner of the 220,000 square foot Connecticut Convention Center. CCEDA made a decision to build their own central utility plant early in the planning stages because they felt they could produce their own steam and chilled water more cost effectively. The central utility plant is comprised of a 9500 square foot structure that houses all of the mechanical systems and HVAC installations including the steam boilers, chillers, chilled water and condensate pumps and the master control room.
