By | Air Handling Units, Complex Mechanical Systems

Greenland Enterprises, Inc. recently passed a major milestone for the Heritage High School HVAC Replacement project. The Greenland team set the last of 32 rooftop units in place at the Newport News, Virginia school as part of an accelerated schedule to have the new HVAC system operational in time for the new school year.

This 10-week project requires an exceptional level of coordination between Greenland, various subcontractors, and vendors to meet the tight timeline, while also minimizing disruptions for students and faculty. Thanks to the efforts of the Greenland team, CST Mechanical, AWG, Chesapeake Controls, and Damuth Trane, the project is currently on schedule.

Cooling Tower Optimization Pays Big Dividends in Food Production

By | Cooling Tower Construction, Design-Build Construction

An article in What’s New in Food Technology & Manufacturing magazine addresses how changes in cooling tower equipment and controls are having a positive impact in the food production industry. We often think of cooling towers and central plants in terms of handling air conditioning needs for inhabited spaces. However, there is a significant cooling need in food production, where heating and pasteurizing foods creates large quantities of heat. This heat impacts the equipment, and the food, which needs to be cooled before packaging. Read More

Upgrading Central Plants to Include Uninterrupted Power and Microgrids

Like a phone’s dial tone, uninterrupted power is often taken for granted until the power goes out and you need it. While power outages are a disruption for many businesses and organizations, for medical centers and clinics power loss can be life-threatening. As facilities age, the industry as a whole is seeing more demands for uninterrupted power in central plant specs. Read More

SAW-Greenland Joint Venture Successful in Boiler Plant Project Bid

By | Boiler Plant Construction, Boiler Plant Controls, Company News

A Joint Venture between Greenland Enterprises and SAW Contracting has been awarded a $16.5M project to replace three boilers at the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville, FL. The combination of each company’s experience and expertise ultimately created the best offering for the Department of Veterans Affairs in awarding this project.

The project involves building a new boiler plant and replacing three water tube boilers with three fire tube boilers, along with new controls and related systems. The boilers provide steam for the medical center campus, and a critical element of the project is keeping the existing boiler plant online during construction and commissioning. Once the new plant is online, the SAW-Greenland team will dismantle and remove the old boilers and related equipment.
