Site Evaluation & Thermal Assessment

Our evaluation process encompasses two essential components: a comprehensive Physical Plant Review and a thorough Site Evaluation. Together, they form the foundation of our Site Evaluation & Thermal Assessment.

Physical Plant Review

Our Physical Plant Review offers an in-depth analysis of your building's heating and energy systems, including central plans, at no cost. We work closely with your building operations staff, conducting thorough walkthroughs of mechanical, engine, and boiler rooms and inspecting all floors and rooftop tanks. By attentively listening to your operational concerns and meticulously documenting our observations, we aim to provide you with a comprehensive report of our findings. Our goal is to unlock opportunities for cost savings, enhance operational safety and efficiency, and minimize utility expenses across steam, electricity, water, and gas/oil, all while significantly reducing the carbon footprint of your building.

Site Evaluation

Our seasoned sales engineers can provide a detailed and comprehensive evaluation of your building's existing steam infrastructure. This in-depth survey serves as the foundational step in our process, helping us understand the complexities of your system and its unique requirements. The data gathered during this survey provides us with the insights needed to formulate a plan aimed at enhancing, preserving, and future-proofing your physical steam system. Whether it's a need for modernization, efficiency optimization, or reliability improvement, our plans are tailored to address each specific requirement, all while ensuring the long-term sustainability of your system. What sets our approach apart is the dual focus on energy conservation and personnel safety. We believe a truly efficient system minimizes energy waste, reduces operational costs, and supports the business. At the same time, we prioritize the safety of your staff, integrating safety measures into our plans to ensure a secure working environment.

Fire Pump Testing

The following services are offered exclusively to fully insured, licensed plumbers and fire sprinkler contractors. This protects the property manager and building owner from specific liabilities associated with this work.

Our team of seasoned professionals provides comprehensive fire pump testing services throughout NYC, ensuring your equipment is in optimal working condition and ready for immediate use. Adhering to the standards set forth by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA 20 and NFPA 25), our testing procedures confirm your fire pumps' compliance with these regulations while offering an in-depth diagnosis of their condition. Upon completing our rigorous testing regimen, we thoroughly analyze your fire pumps' performance and any necessary maintenance recommendations.
We cater to all common types of fire pumps, including electric, diesel, and steam. Our services encompass a broad spectrum of requirements, such as annual full-operation testing in NYC, along with critical flow and pressure checks – key components that govern the core functionality of fire pumps.

Leveraging the expertise of our licensed partners, we perform comprehensive testing on all fire pump system components, including the engine, battery, fuel supply, and temperature sensors. This holistic approach ensures your system is compliant, efficient, reliable, and primed for action when needed.
