Southwestern Vermont Medical Center

SVMC opened in 1918 and started as a small 30 bed hospital. In over 100 years the hospital has grown to 99 beds and several satellite buildings. NCMI completed a mechanical insulation energy appraisal and sent it off to Efficiency Vermont who provided a rebate for the six figure project.

Finding the Solution

In Q4 of 2020 NCMI was engaged in several projects and was looking to partner with a company that made removable jackets for valves, steam traps, check valves etc. Working with Thermaxx eased the workload for our installers as handmaking removables onsite is time consuming. This allowed our installers to focus on the pipe covering/equipment rather than spends hundreds of hours handmaking these removables.

The Final Result

For the initial phase of the project, we focused on the major areas, bare piping and equipment like condensate tanks or pump boxes, as well as repairing insulation with ASJ paper that was falling off or insulation that had been damaged over time. We worked in the following mechanical spaces:

  • West Wing Machine Room
  • West Wing Chiller Room
  • Northwest Wing Machine Room
  • West Wing Storage
  • Catscan Mechanical Room
  • 2nd Floor Connector Machine Room
  • 3rd Floor Machine Room
  • 1st Floor Machine Room
  • Welding Shop Mechanical Room
  • Paine Elevator Room
  • Old Boiler Room

We’re pleased to be kicking off a phase 2 of the project in 2021
