Gillette intern uses GIS to map City Hall HVAC system


From the January 27, 2014 issue of Public Power Daily

Originally published January 27, 2014

University of Wyoming student James Rundel, sponsored by Gillette Utilities, was awarded a scholarship from APPA's Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments program to develop a method to track and document historical data, current configurations and future equipment needs for the HVAC system in Gillette’s City Hall. He created a GIS-based inventory system for the equipment, identifying features such as boilers and chillers, as well as vents and thermostats. 

The GIS software catalogs the precise location of equipment and features within the building and links to information about each part of the system. The information includes three-dimensional location, equipment type, make and model of equipment, installation date, expected lifetime, estimated replacement cost and a brief description.

The database will be used to support preventive maintenance, repairs and replacement. The final report for the project is posted in the DEED Project Database.
