Erdman Anthony was requested to evaluate the
feasibility cost of separating the utilities at an existing manufacturing plant,
455,000 sq ft in floor plan, within an industrial campus that had a
self-contained utility structure. Utilities involved in the evaluation were as
2,200-2,400-ton independent chiller plant for building cooling
1,500 HP independent boiler plant for building heating
Independent compressed-air plant for process systems
Domestic water sourced from local public water authority
Fire-protection water sourced from local public water authority with local
Independent nitrogen plant
Independent RO water plant
Natural gas sourced from local utility company
Storm water and sanitary water systems connected to local county-operated
Independent industrial waste treatment plant discharging to local
county-operated collection systems
Dual 34.5kV electric services from local utility company
Emergency generators to provide life-safety and critical-load systems
Telecommunications services from local provider
Parking and employee access to the building
Removal/relocation of utility piping, telecommunications systems, and sewer
Erdman Anthony prepared a report summarizing the concepts
and options, evaluated the feasibility, completed life-cycle cost analyses for
chiller and boiler options, and established a general scope of work required to
separate these systems. The report also included ROM cost estimates for various
Our team investigated the option of a cogeneration plant and
determined that because of the size of the plant and the economic life-cycle
cost/benefit analysis, this option did not provide an economic benefit.
