The new Central Heating Plant replaces three existing deteriorating steam boilers and provides heat for two facilities at Millhaven and Bath Institutions for our clients, Public Works and Government Services Canada. The new steam plant houses three BHP Low Water Volume boilers, registering the plant as ‘Unattended’ allowing operation without continuous supervision, thus achieving a significant reduction in labour costs. Also included is a new deaerator, feedwater tank, blowdown tank, pumps, chemical treatment and all other equipment to provide a complete steam production plant.
Designed to address the technical requirement of the continuous operation of the boilers, the plant also considers serviceability and maintenance needs. Continuous operable clerestory windows permit daylight to enter while preventing heat build up through natural ventilation. The efficient use of structure and materials respond to issues of security and safety while considering ease of construction and cost.
