This project entailed conversion of a low-efficiency heating plant with steam boilers to a high-efficiency hot water heating plant with condensing boilers. SMS develop a detailed energy model to assess energy use and carbon reductions, and energy cost savings to establish financial and social viability of plant conversion.
The new system incorporated multiple separate heating distribution systems each using different temperatures enabling optimization of high efficiency condensing boiler technology. Asbestos abatement of existing heating system elements was incorporated into the project to enhance a safe working environment. To confirm system operating characteristics, a full commissioning process was conducted.
