Commercial construction is a complex endeavor, made even more so when you consider the mechanical systems needed to effectively control large commercial and industrial spaces. Consider a hospital, or large university dormitory — each has very specific needs for heating, cooling, electricity, water, wastewater and fire suppression systems. However, the nature of the building’s use significantly changes the construction approach needed. Read More
The Department of Veterans Affairs has selected Greenland Enterprises, INC to construct a new boiler plant for the agency’s Wilkes-Barre, PA Veterans Medical Center. The $12.7 million project includes de-construction and demolition of existing structures and constructing a new boiler plant and all related systems.
Past performance is a good predictor of future success. That’s one of the reasons we are happy to share information about recent projects — to highlight Greenland’s experience and expertise with successful project delivery.
Here’s a response to a recent past performance questionnaire from a boiler plant replacement project:
“INITIAL PROPOSAL: Greenland presented a solicitation proposal that covered all factors in the manner prescribed. This was a very good indication that the company knew the process. Their proposal gave a detailed construction schedule that showed an early completion date. Outside of a few change orders with additional work, the proposed schedule has been accomplished by Greenland. Read More
Using a prefabricated, modular approach to central plant construction is an increasingly popular approach, when compared to traditional construction techniques. Modular construction isn’t always the best solution for plant construction, but in many cases, there are several advantages to the property owner, management, builder, and end-user. Read More
Boiler plant upgrades don’t necessarily mean building an entirely new plant and installing new boilers. In the past several years significant advancements have been made in controls and burners, allowing for far greater efficiency and turndown capacity. For many facility managers, upgrading controls breathes new life into aging boiler plant systems. Read More
Stakeholders involved in a large, complex construction project can appreciate the importance of completing projects on time and on budget. Usually the completion schedule is tied to financial compensation and dependencies for other elements of a larger project. Read More
A recent article in Engineered Systems magazine is a great example of why it’s important to have both expertise and experience in your engineering and construction firm for central plants. The article, titled Boiler Design & Selection: What Engineers Should Keep in Mind, highlights the wide number of boiler and system design considerations, many of which will vary based on the building owner’s goals and even the current state.
