Hospital of Central Connecticut Fuel Conversion, UST Removal and Replacement Design-Build Services

Fuss & O’Neill worked with the hospital and a familiar team of subcontractors for an efficient UST removal and replacement process. We provided design and construction services associated with the underground storage tanks (USTs) system removal and USTs replacement, as well as the conversion of three boilers for a new fuel type use (No. 6 to No. 2 fuel) and the removal and replacement of interior piping and transfer pump associated with the system on this design-build project.

As tanks containing No. 6 fuel fail to meet EPA compliance standards, tanks that use No. 2 fuel will provide a more efficient energy source for large companies like the Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain.

Key Project Elements:

  • Temporary back up fuel source during construction
  • Asbestos abatement of insulation surrounding former No. 6 oil lines
  • Hazardous waste storage shed removal/replacement
  • Converted boilers from No. 6 oil to No. 2 oil
  • Additional concrete pads and paving as requested
  • Expedited delivery to pressure back up fuel source to hospital
  • New burner controls system installation and integration.
  • $2.1M overall project budget delivered over a period of 10 months both on time and on budget
