Highlights

read more › CRC Engineering, P.C. was founded by engineers with a combined experience of over 40 years in the central utility industry. Each partner brings a wealth of experience to the firm. Mr. Tso draws upon his considerable experience with central utility system design, analysis, optimization and master planning to lead the energy services efforts at CRC Engineering. He specializes in chilled water system design and has experience with large projects; he has served as the project manager / lead mechanical engineer for the $200 million World Trade Center Central Chiller Plant project.

read more › CRC Engineering specializes in the design of central utility systems. The Partners of CRC Engineering have experience leading large and complex central utility plant projects. The Partners of CRC Engineering are working with the design team for the Port Authority of NY & NJ serving as the lead mechanical engineer and project manager for the $200 million design of the central chiller plant, chilled water site distribution systems and river water systems serving the World Trade Center site. CRC Engineering is providing design services for the site-wide high temperature hot water systems infrastructure renewal project at Brown University.

read more › Central utility systems operations account for a large portion of any facility's operating cost. Optimization of central utility systems to maximize energy efficiency is becoming more and more critical in today's environment of high energy and fuel costs. CRC Engineering provides system optimization studies which provide their clients with a review of the existing systems and identification of measures to optimize operations of the existing systems to realize energy cost savings opportunities. Oftentimes, a small modification to an existing system can pay dividends in energy savings.

read more › One aspect of CRC Engineering's services that separates CRC from other engineering firms is our ability to provide field services in support of our design work. We provide field services specific to central plant construction, operation and maintenance; we specialize in startup and commissioning of central plant equipment. Due to the large and sophisticated central plant equipment and systems, field services for central utility plant projects require much more knowledge and understanding of system operation and control than a standard MEP commissioning department can provide.

The chiller plant will serve multiple users across the WTC Site including: the Memorial & Museum, the Freedom tower retail spaces, the PATH Hub station, the Performing Arts Center, the East Bathtub retail spaces, the Vehicular Security Center and the MTA Cortland street '1-train' station.

read more › CRC Engineering, as a prime subconsultant to Parsons Brinckerhoff, was contracted by the Port Authority of NY & NJ to provide the complete design and construction documents for the replacement of four High Temperature Hot Water (HTHW) generators and associated support equipment at the Central Heating and Refrigeration Plant (CHRP) at Newark Airport. Although the existing HTHW generators (50 MMBtus each) were installed in the summer of 2000, the existing HTHW generators are damaged and the Port Authority has decided to replace them.

read more › The Partners of CRC Engineering provided the Port Authority of NY & NJ with a condition survey and assessment of the existing high temperature hot water (HTHW) distribution systems and expansion joints between the terminals at Newark Airport. Based on the findings of this survey, many of the existing HTHW distribution piping supports had failed and numerous expansion joints were in need of immediate replacement. The Partners of CRC provided a detailed thermal piping stress analysis and detailed design and construction documents to repair the failed HTHW piping supports and replace the expansion joints.

read more › Astoria Generating Station provides about 20 percent of New York City's power. High pressure superheated steam is generated by utility grade boilers and used by steam turbines (1300 MW total capacity) to generate power for the grid. CRC Engineering was comissioned to provide detailed mechanical design documents for the replacement of all 32 burners for Boiler Unit 50. Unit 50 is a tangentially fired, multi-burner, 10 story hanging tube type utility grade boiler which generates high pressure superheated steam (2000 psi at 2500 degrees F) and is capable of burning both natural gas and #6 fuel oil.

Design documents for the installation of a new 120,000 lbs/hr, 180 psig boiler and associated auxiliaries in the existing boiler plant were provided. For this project, rigging the boiler into the existing boiler room presented the challenge. Due to limited access space, another consultant's original concept called for a field erected boiler. The detailed design of a new 125,000 lbs/hr boiler installation, economizer and auxiliaries were provided.

read more › The central plant at South Nassau Communities Hospital (SNCH) generates steam and chilled water for heating and cooling for the hospital. Chilled water is generated at the central plant by two 750 ton two-stage absorbers and one 750 ton electric centrifugal chiller. The chilled water is distributed to the individual mechanical rooms in the hospital buildings through a network of distribution piping. The configuration of the original chilled water system was a constant flow primary/secondary pumping system.

read more › The HSBC building is provided with chilled water for cooling of its office space and trading floors from a central chiller plant. The original central plant consisted of two 700 ton electric centrifugal chillers, cooling towers, and chilled water and condenser water pumps. The chillers were undersized for the load they were serving and were nearing the end of their useful life. Multiple plate & frame heat exchangers are also located in the plant and serves various portions of the building, including the trading floors.

read more › CRC Engineering provided the design engineering for the rehabilitation and repair of an approximately 110 foot long bulkhead located at a private residence in East Northport, Long Island. The existing bulkhead consisted of timber and wood sheeting with wale construction with steel rod tiebacks and deadmen. CRC Engineering provided shoring protection design for a construction project involving the repair and rehabilitation of the existing piles supporting the pier. The pier construction dated back to 1927 and consisted of wooden piles, timber decking and up to ten feet of gravel and fill on the decking.
