The Plaza Hotel dates back to the 1880’s when Las Vegas was an important commercial center on the Santa Fe trail. The adjacent Ilfeld building was restored and connected to the Plaza Hotel. The building added guestrooms, and other hotel functions. A complete new mechanical system was designed which includes water source heat pumps with a boiler and cooling tower.
Historic rock hotel built in 1892. An historic assessment was performed. Recommendations were made for new mechanical systems. Energy efficiency along with incorporation into the historic structure were factors. The hotel will be restored.
Replacement of a 250-ton high temperature absorption chiller with a new one. Installation is in the basement of this high-rise dormitory that served the Bronco’s summer training camp. Re-piping of chilled water, high temperature heating water, condenser water, and new cooling tower on the roof.
For years, the dormitories on the old east campus experienced temperature fluctuations in the showers resulting in scalding conditions. A study was provided to ascertain the cause, make appropriate recommendations, and offer a probable construction cost estimate. Included in the recommendations were water pressure reducing valves, shock absorbers, and pressure-compensating shower valves. The measures were implemented in one dormitory immediately and there have been no complaints since.
