Burns Helps NYU Increase Infrastructure Reliability
Burns is currently working with New York University (NYU) to increase the reliability and efficiency of mechanical and plumbing pumping systems across its campus – a massive campus that accommodates over 40,000 students, and has buildings spread throughout the city, from midtown Manhattan to Greenwich Village, and even downtown Brooklyn.
Burns performed extensive field surveys to analyze the current condition of mechanical equipment, pumps, and controls, and using the data collected, compiled an equipment inventory for each building. This valuable information will help NYU prioritize repairs, schedule maintenance, and develop and issue requests for proposals for any necessary system improvements.
Burns is also helping NYU evaluate options to replace the existing chillers in the Barney Building – a building that houses photography laboratories – to increase system reliability and reduce maintenance costs.
