Project Details

Rasmussen Mechanical Services received a call from Doane University at 2:00pm on a Thursday letting us know they had a campus building with no heat. The building was heated with hot water via a steam heat exchanger that failed.

Doane decided to procure (4) Riello Condexa 117 boilers, for us to install ASAP.

One of our project managers was on site by 3:30pm that day and worked with the university on an installation plan. By 6:00pm that night the plan was agreed upon and we gathered our team.

Four of our fitters worked for 22 hours straight until 4am on Saturday morning. By that point, they were able to fire ​​​up 2 of the installed boilers which was enough to heat the facility over the weekend.

Rasmussen Mechanical was able to take the building from “No Heat” to a new boiler room in 36 hours. 

(The room in the pictures was empty when we started Friday morning with the exception of the water supply/return mains.)
