Performed moisture evaluation of high school with re-occurring mold growth. BDL identified excessive infiltration, poorly insulated pipes and VAV deficiencies and was retained to design replacement systems. As Project Engineer, BDL verified the installation of new central plant and distribution equipment and controls. The school now provides a healthy and comfortable learning environment.
Modernized middle school, replacing the boiler plant with high efficiency gas-fired pulse combustion condensing boilers, converting hot water and chilled water pumping systems to primary-secondary systems controlled with variable frequency drives and replacing local HVAC equipment. BDL also monitored IAQ in occupied areas during construction
Provided comprehensive assessment of HVAC systems and IAQ in South Pole Station research buildings. Work included determining air change rates in buildings using Tracer Gas Decay methods and detailed testing for volatile organics. BDL’s analysis was used by the National Science Foundation to support design of the new South Pole Station.
Monitored moisture conditions throughout construction of sports arena for the General Contractor. Evaluated and supervised the mitigation of water infiltration and condensation issues, preventing the formation of mold growth. At completion, BDL verified the arena was free of mold growth and ongoing moisture sources.
