Central Heating & Cooling Systems
Central Heating System.jpg

Preliminary and detailed design for upgrades as well as new design for central heating and cooling systems for a variety of public infrastructure projects.  Entire heating system was as-built and connected; demand was verified. Mechanical calculations and P&IDs were prepared to pinpoint areas of concern. Heating system testing procedure was developed and implemented which allowed to verify the system operation and issues. DDC-based BMS system was developed and all critical equipment was connected to the BMS panels. This allowed central control, monitoring and early detection of malfunction or failure. Preliminary engineering report was prepared with viable options for improvement. Upgrading the existing equipment ensured that current heating demand is being met, there is spare capacity in the system for additional facilities, and energy consumption is reduced in the shoulder season. DynaWest Engineering's team also provided construction and commissioning support, prepared ITP to assist the client and their contractors in verifying the system operation and troubleshooting.

Condition Assessments 

Assessment of HVAC, Plumbing, and Fire Protection Systems for Commercial and Industrial Buildings.  Assessments included Visual Assessment, Operation Inspection, Recommended Actions with Pros and Cons, Expected Asset Life (per ASHRAE’s EUL Guidelines), Preventive Maintenance Logs review, Budgetary Cost Estimation for recommended upgrades, and Summary Report with Photo Record.
