SUNY Buffalo State - Reconstruct Central Heating Plant

The existing steam heating plant was constructed in 1947 and included four, 56,000 pph steam boilers. In 1965 an addition was constructed on the north end of the steam plant for the addition of two more 56,000 pph boilers.

In 2000 the two 56,000 pph boilers on the north end addition were removed, and a new single 27,000 fire-tube water (summer use) was installed, along with controls and modernization upgrades to the original four boilers.

Sienna provided complete design and construction administration services for the replacement of the existing boilers and all associated equipment, wiring, piping, controls and appurtenances within the building. This project included the removal of six 42,000 gallon underground #6 fuel tanks, and the removal of an existing 160 ft. masonry stack. The new boilers and equipment require less space, thus accommodating a down-sizing and partial demolition of the building.
