Project Overview

DTC is currently providing mechanical, electrical and plumbing design services for multiple assignments as part of an on-call contract with the University of Connecticut.

Some of the assignments include the following:

Bishop Center Mechanical System – Long Term Improvements – HVAC Upgrades

DTC prepared an HVAC facilities existing condition analysis with detailed recommendations related to long term improvements to the HVAC systems. The analysis included exploration of potential energy saving measures as well as energy modeling of potential options for equipment replacement and system Upgrades. Options included expansion of the existing hot and chilled water systems for improved zoning and energy profile.

McConaughy Hall Dining Facility MEP Upgrades

DTC prepared an existing condition analysis of all the MEP systems within the dining facility which included detailed recommendations for upgrades to the HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical systems for energy efficiency. The analysis included exploration of potential energy saving measures for the cafeteria kitchen operations to combine hood exhaust, improve controls and upgrade HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems and equipment. Energy modeling was performed to show potential savings for each option considered.

Athletic Complex MEP Corrective Action Design

DTC conducted a complete facility infrastructure audit of the Gampel Pavillion and associated Athletic complex including Wolff Zakkin Pool, Brundage Pool, Greer field house, Fitness Center and Training facilities. The survey and study included a survey of the HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical systems throughout with recommendations for replacement and upgrades. Budgets were prepared for each recommendation and the findings were presented to the Athletic and Facilities department.

Torey Life Sciences Building Laboratory Renovation

DTC provided MEP design services for Laboratory renovations. DTC worked in conjunction with the University Architectural Staff and construction unit.

Water Filtration & HVAC Evaluation – Information Technology Facilities Homer Babbidge Library

Information Technology Facilities Homer Babbidge Library – DTC performed a study to evaluate the existing building and infrastructure at the data center within the facility. The study identified major deficiencies and recommendations for replacement of HVAC systems, improvements to the electrical systems and associated data room reconfiguration. Design for the approved recommendations are being implemented for the data center that supports the main data, internet, voice and video for the university.
