ESCO Project on Capitol Hill

As the executive director for the Capitol Preservation Board I would like to thank the teams of: Chevron, Trane and Siemens for submitting their proposals. Each one was well prepared and provided excellent information. Based upon the proposals we have decided to interview two of the three teams in order to help us make our final decision. Following the interviews the selected team will be awarded the project and will be posted on this blog.

ESCO Questions - October 2, 2009

I am sorry for not getting back to everyone sooner with the answer to the first question from last night. It was:

1. How Much is the York Chiller loaded during the Winter? (approximate tonnage or KW)

The answer is:
It varies from 50 to 200 tons.

Typical days are 100-200 tons.
Typical nights are 50-125 tons.

I hope that helps. This concludes the alloted time period for answering questions. Please address any further concerns you have in the proposal which you will be submitting. We look forward to all of your submittals.

ESCO Questions - October 1, 2009

The following questions have been asked. Please see the answer directly below each question.

1. How much is the York Chiller loaded during the winter? (approximate tonnage or kW)
This question will be answered after consulting with the Maintenance Department. We should have the answer posted by Friday evening.

2. Where is the heat rejected from the DX Leiberts expelled? Is this location centralized?
The heat to my knowledge is pulled into the central return system of the building in which the unit is located. We currently do not capture or use that heat in any way.

3. Are there any irrigation wells on the campus?
Not to my knowledge. We do store drainage and slowly release it to the city storm drain.

I hope this addresses the questions. David
