Charles Hays Secondary School
Natural Gas - 45%
Rocky Point Engineering was retained to provide mechanical design services for the new central heating plant at Charles Hays Secondary School located in Prince Rupert, BC for School District #52.
Two existing 5,000 MBH boilers were replaced with two condensing boilers and one mid-efficiency cast iron high-temperature boiler as the central heating plant for this secondary school. Furthermore, a wall-hung condensing boiler and three domestic hot water storage tanks replaced the existing two domestic hot water boilers and single storage tank. Existing soil conditions exhibit seasonal heaving of the floor slab, which required flexible connections for all mechanical services to the new central plant. In its first heating season of operation, the new central plant reduced gas consumption to 45% of previous levels.
