Scope Of Work
The work entailed the demolition of the existing administration building and the construction of a new two-story hardened EETC. The first floor is comprised of separate public and staff entrances, an electrical room, city records storage, a waiting/reception area, general and staff office areas, a break room, a copy/plan room, and a large IT data center boasting its own climate control system. The second floor hosts a large conference area lounge.
Included in the project was a 26.5 kW photovoltaic solar collection to provide 80% of the power required for the building operations, a 22 SEER humidity-controlled high efficiency A/C unit (divided into multiple zones), and the roof was built around a water reclamation system that diverts captured rainwater into two 1,500 GL underground cisterns. These cisterns provide water closets and urinals with reclaimed water. Any remaining rainwater is redistributed for use in the irrigation of the property landscape.
As part of our team Zager Plumbing worked with renowned solar expert Dr. Roger Messenger, P.E. of FAE Consulting, who provided engineered drawings for the PV project. The PV system consists of thin film solar laminates that adhere directly to the roof without the need for any penetrations. There are 96 Global Solar PowerFLEX 275-watt solar modules that feed 2 Solectria 13kW inverters. These solar modules work well in low light conditions and minimized the installation time and costs due to the absence of a conventional racking system.
As part of the work performed on the water was the reinforcing of existing sea wall and new seawall cap, complete new dock systems to include pilings, floating docks, and marina stations with water, sewer systems, electrical and fire service to service boats.
