The project scope included the replacement of underground piping at the City University of New York – York College campus in Jamaica, Queens for the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY). The scope of work included replacement of a four-pipe system of underground piping comprised of chilled and heating hot water supply and return lines running from the central heating / cooling plant at York College to the HCPE Building approximately 150 feet away. The bulk of the piping system runs approximately 8 to 10 feet beneath Liberty Avenue.
