The team of Greenland Enterprises and SAW Contracting recently completed a $6.8M boiler plant replacement for the Altoona, PA Veterans Administration Medical Center. The year-plus project included demolition of the existing structures and replacing the boiler, steam piping, boiler plant controls fuel oil and natural gas piping, feed water pumps and other auxiliary systems.
Temporary boilers and generators were installed to provide continuous steam delivery to the medical center during construction. “It’s always a good feeling to complete a complex project on time and on budget,” said Greenland Enterprises President Elton Roller. “Medical centers need uninterrupted systems and we pride ourselves on delivering solutions that have a minimal impact on operations.”
