Siemens Government Technologies Selects CMS for Large Energy Performance Contract at the JSMC Tank Plant

BARGERSVILLE, IN – CMS Corporation (CMS), a leading mechanical construction firm providing turnkey and design-build services, announced today that it has been awarded a $8.7 million design-build (D-B) turnkey contract with Siemens Government Technologies (SGT) to install thirty-seven (37) steam-fired heat recovery units (HRUs) equipped with advanced enthalpic plates, and a single large air handling unit (AHU) at the JSMC Tank Plant in Lima, Ohio. The USACE Huntsville District has oversight of this Contract. The scope of work will include the removal and demolition of the existing HRUs and associated piping, electrical services, controls, and appurtenances. CMS will also supply and install controls with native BACnet connectivity to permit integration to a new facility-wide building management system on the new HRUs, as well as VFDs on the HRUs and exhaust fans. The project does not require any government spend as it will be funded by the energy savings resulting from the system upgrade; and in-line with environmental goals there will be a nice reduction in the facility’s carbon footprint.

“This contract represents an excellent opportunity for CMS to continue to develop a strong relationship with SGT and to demonstrate CMS’s extensive mechanical construction skillset to SGT and the Army Corp of Engineers in the performance contracting space,” said Ernest Enrique, CEO of CMS.

CMS’s Guam Team Wins GCA Excellence in Construction Award

GCA 2015 Award

BARRIGADA, GUAM – CMS Corporation’s project for the Retro-commissioning of 33 Facilities at Andersen AFB (AAFB), Guam has received a 2015 Guam Contractors Association (GCA) Excellence in Construction Award.

This project was selected for award in the “Federal Government/Military Less Than $10M” category. This $7.4M Design-Build project was highly rated by the Government, earning Very Good and Exceptional performance ratings in such areas as management, coordination, quality, and schedule.

The CMS-led Team completed retrofitting and commissioning of the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) components in 33 facilities at AAFB, including HVAC ducts, duct air sensors, air-cooled condensing units, air handing units (AHUs), variable air volume (VAV) boxes, HVAC controls, instruments and gauges, direct digital controls (DDCs), air volume dampers, chillers, and chilled water pumps. The completed project will reduce utility expenditures by reducing energy and resource consumption. High-efficiency, low maintenance materials were utilized to obtain the desired energy savings and sustainability outcome. This project was completed in December 2014.

CEO Ernest Enrique noted, “This project demonstrates excellence in innovation, quality, communication, and safety. Our project team was very proactive in coordinating the work with all facility managers, which not only minimized operational impacts, but also improved overall quality, safety, and customer satisfaction with the finished project.
