Erdman Anthony evaluated the feasibility and associated cost of separating the utilities of a 455,000-square-foot manufacturing plant owned by a leading medical diagnostics company. The plant, in an industrial campus in Rochester, NY, had a self-contained utility structure.
The utilities involved in the evaluation were:
Erdman Anthony prepared a report summarizing the concepts and options, evaluated the feasibility, completed life-cycle benefit cost analyses for chiller and boiler options, and established a general scope of work required to separate these systems. The report also included rough order of magnitude cost estimates for various options.
Working with Erdman Anthony, the client considered building a cogeneration plant but determined the option would not provide an economic benefit due to the plant’s size and results of a life-cycle cost benefit analysis.
