JFK Medical Center completed more than $3.3 million of energy efficiency
upgrades at their Edison, NJ campus in 2014, and Binsky & Snyder was
accountable for the majority of those energy conservation measures.
Binsky & Snyder acted as prime contractor, responsible for mechanical,
electrical, civil and controls engineering. The primary task was to replace
the two existing water cooled chillers without affecting hospital staff
and patients. Temporary chillers and bypass piping were installed by the
Binsky team to ensure this was achieved. In all, the team upgraded switchgears
chillers, water heaters, and cooling towers. As well as, premium efficiency
motors for existing air handlers.
These upgrades have since improved the comfort and convenience of everyone
in the building and the full list of conservation measures will save JFK
Medical Center about $5 million in utility costs over the next 20 years.
Binsky finished on schedule, on budget and injury free.
