Design of New Geothermal System for St. Patricks’s Cathedral
PWGC collaborated in the design of a new geothermal HVAC system for St.
Patrick’s Cathedral with the Client/Owner’s architect, and
representative. Based on an
initial feasibility study, a geothermal plant option compared to a new
traditional system would save over 25% of the annual energy costs, and
would be more compact & virtually invisible to the public.
The Client/Owner selected the geothermal option, consistent with
Pope Francis’ vision of preservation and responsible stewardship of our
planet. PWGC and Landmark Facilities Group (LFG) designed the 10-well
system as well as the reversible chillers and the new chilled and hot
water piping distribution system.
The interface between the two firms’ work is a series of
plate-frame heat exchangers on a geothermal manifold in the plant.
PWGC and LFG collaborated on the well capacity needed to meet the
cathedral’s heating and cooling demand annually and into the future.
