NYCHA Cypress Hills Boiler and Domestic Hot Water Heater Replacements
STV is supporting a boiler and domestic hot water replacement project for the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA.) This $35 million project encompasses 15 NYCHA buildings, and more than 1,400 residential units, and involves upgrading boiler plants, replacing existing heat exchangers with gas-fired hot water heaters, and construction for dedicated equipment rooms. STV prepared the existing conditions report and design, construction, and bid documents, and is providing construction administration services.
Faced with the challenge of replacing hot water equipment without cutting off heat to NYCHA residents—particularly in the winter months— STV’s design team carefully planned and phased the renovations to avoid interrupting building utilities services. The firm also performed environmental remediation design services required for the removal of two existing underground petroleum storage tanks.
