Project : Cornell Utilities Master Plan

Cornell University — Ithaca, New York

CHA Canada performed utilities infrastructure engineering assessments for Cornell University's master plan. Assessments were performed for the following areas of the campus:

  • Arts Quad
  • Engineering Quad
  • State Campus

The assessments have involved the following utilities:

  • Steam and condensate
  • Chilled water supply and return
  • Potable water
  • Storm and sanitary sewers
Project Services:
  • Visual inspection of vaults, anchors and pipe condition
  • Collected data on the age of the infrastructure
  • Identified type of construction for the infrastructure
  • Capacity model runs to meet projected load growths
  • Steam and chilled water model runs to identify pipe capacity with portion of loop out of service
  • Recommendations for implementing new infrastructure to meet new loads and/or reliability
  • Report preparation
