The Advantages of Using BIM for Hanger and Pipe Sleeve Location

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a 3-D based process for the planning, design, construction and management of buildings using one coherent system of computer models rather than separate sets of drawings. The following is a real-world case study showing the advantages of using BIM on a new building project at a local college:

Hydronic Piping Systems

Hydronics is the use of water as the heat-transfer medium in heating and cooling systems. A hydronic piping system is used to circulate chilled or hot water with the connections between the piping and the terminal units made in a series loop. The terminal units are the heat exchangers that transfer the thermal energy between … Continued

Save Energy and Reduce Costs with Combined Heat and Power

Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also referred to as cogeneration, is an integrated energy system that produces both heat and electrical power from a single fuel source…typically a gas-fired engine generator. Applications of CHP include: Residential  Industrial  Institutions Commercial buildings  District energy plants  How Combined Heat and Power Works The generator used for combined heat … Continued
