Coordination with Multiple Contractors

CMS was required to prepare a mechanical infrastructure to accept equipment from a separate contractor. After flagging possible areas of incompatibility in the RFP, CMS contacted the equipment provider and worked closely with them in order to provide a perfect match between the infrastructure we built and the equipment they installed.


This project consisted of furnishing, installing and placing in successful operation a new steam generating facility infrastructure in which new steam equipment would be provided to generate and dispense steam throughout the University campus. CMS was contracted to provide a full and complete infrastructure to accept the 200,000 lbs/hr natural gas fired package boiler, and also to fabricate piping to fit the new system.
