TKDA provided design and construction administration services for the boiler replacement project at the Hennepin Technical College Brooklyn Park and Eden Prairie campuses. Prior to moving into final design, TKDA performed a study to analyze optimal boiler size and configuration; and analyzed the feasibility for alternative heating system options, such as steam-to-hot water conversion and heat pumps. The project replaced three 500 bhp low pressure steam boilers with two 500 bhp and one 200 bhp low pressure steam boilers. TKDA coordinated the sequence of construction with the contractor to keep two boilers operating throughout the duration of construction to maintain steam to the campus. The project also involved replacing the condensate tank and pumps, the deaerator and boiler feed pumps and the back-up fuel oil pumping system. An extensive boiler control system was designed allowing the boiler operator to monitor operation of the boilers from a remote workstation in the boiler control room.
