Engineering scope of work included a complete feasibility analysis, the Army Corps of Engineers plan checking process, and a complete set of construction documents (including controls and sequence of operations). 

As part of the feasibility analysis, we determined that the cost of operating the electric chiller would save $129,706 per year by having a more efficient chiller (comparing natural gas to electricity) and implementing the primary variable pumping system.
