RMF worked with the University of South Carolina to develop a comprehensive assessment and strategic master plan related to the renovation and/or renewal of the existing utility plants and associated distribution systems on the main campus.
RMF also provided a hydraulic model for evaluating the capacities and reliability of the existing steam and chilled water distributions. An evaluation was performed to analyze the potential of interconnecting the four individual chilled water systems.
