BL Companies completed an energy-efficiency study for five Coventry Schools and Town Hall. Each building’s heating, cooling, ventilation, and control systems were evaluated for remaining life and energy efficiency. A life-cycle cost analysis was performed for each option, comparing first cost, energy saving, and associated maintenance cost of each recommendation.
Our services included mechanical design of new above ground tanks and level controls, preparation of specifications for the removal of the existing USTs, as well as environmental closeout of existing tanks with Connecticut DEEP. Natural gas conversions for existing oil fired appliances and energy efficient boiler replacements. Code improvements related to fire separations where the High School, Education Complex, and Middle School are connected. Hazardous building material identification, remediation specifications, oversight, and project closeout documentation.
BL Companies assisted the Town of Coventry with the DAS Grant Application to successfully obtain funding for this project. This included completion of project costs, state forms, project summaries, assisting town officials with grant requirements, and attendance of meetings with DAS officials. The Coventry High School asbestos abatement grant was approved for emergency funding outside of the traditional in-session timeline. The abatement was completed in June 2020.
