Central Utility Plants / Cogen
Encore Boston Harbor Resort/Casino – Construction Documents – Wynn Resorts*
Project Manager & Mechanical Engineer of Record responsible for leading the MEP/FP/T team from the start of the project through construction. Central plant consisting of 46 mmbtu heating, and 5,900 tons of cooling. Mark was the Lead Mechanical engineer for sizing, selection, and detailed design of the (2) 1.5 MW gas fired cogeneration system including heat recovery for domestic hot water, heating hot water, and an absorption chiller. The facility also includes 4MW of Emergency Generators, 4 MW of batteries, and 688 kW solar PV integrated into the switchgear to provide the facility with exceptional redundancy and peak shaving capabilities. Two data centers at 650kw and 125kw utilize Liebert DSE systems to leverage free cooling when the weather allows.
Wood Chip Boiler Plant – Construction Documents – Smith & Sons
Elevated Design’s first project, Mark provided construction documents for a new garage, office, and warehouse with two buildings totaling 21,000SF. The facility included two 500 mbtu wood chip boilers where Mark acted as the MassCEC certified ‘Primary Designer’ to secure a $100,000 grant. Based on the wood chip boiler characteristics, the project utilized an unconventional high deltaT heating-hot-water system creating an ultra efficient distribution approach.
Manufacturing Facility 4.6 MW Cogen – Feasibility Study – Next Grid Markets
Created energy model for analyzing the feasibility of adding 1.3 MW solar, 4 MWhr batteries, and 4.6 MW turbine with 145 psig steam output to improve efficiency at this manufacturing plant.
The Charles Hotel – Feasibility Study – Co-Energy America
Completed a feasibility study to determine required infrastructure upgrades and technical feasibility of adding a 250 kW cogen to this hotel. Hotel’s use of electric heating and condenser water loop cooling created unique challenges.
North Central Correctional Institute – Energy Upgrades – DCAMM*
Feasibility and energy studies were provided to DCAMM regarding the boiler replacement and energy conservations measures at the NCCI Gardner facility. The project then executed the preferred options described in the study as well as providing additional energy conservation measures not included in the study.
