Mechanical Plant Replacement

Princeton Engineering Services provided Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical Engineering Design Services which primarily consisted of three (2) new 59 BHP Buderus Hot Water Boilers with Webster Dual-Fuel Burners, Automatic Temperature Controls, hot water end-suction pumps, underground fuel-oil storage tank and transfer pumps, sump pumps, gas service upgrade. The Electrical design consisted of providing power for all new equipment and new lighting for the Boiler Room and adjacent Mechanical Rooms. One particular challenge during design was to bring combustion air into the Boiler Room where insufficient exterior wall area above grade existed. Princeton Engineering Services’ solution involved designing an areaway sized to suit a full-size exterior louver for natural-draft combustion air intake.
