General Project Scope:

Opterra Energy was retained by Eastern Michigan University to upgrade the University’s Central Heating Plant. Plans called for removing a gas fired turbine, gas fired boiler and replacing the units with updated equipment to meet the University’s current needs.

Opterra contacted HOMRICH to remove the existing units and associated equipment to prepare the area for the installation of new equipment. Demolition of the existing units required asbestos abatement, torch cutting, rigging and salvage of items to incorporate in the new work.

The work was completed in an active plant and HOMRICH isolated the work areas to prevent disruption of ongoing plant activities. In addition, the project had a tight timeline due to the delivery and installation of new equipment. HOMRICH closely monitored the progress to deliver a cleared area on schedule and without incident.
