Multi-phased replacement of the existing underground steam and condensate return systems supporting multiple buildings with upgrades to improve system performance and longevity. Design provided for 2,350 linear feet of trench and 4,000 linear feet of direct buried pre-insulated and building/manhole interior steam and condensate return piping. Piping design included connections to seven existing buildings routed through four existing and one new steam manhole structures. Piping was of various pressures and sizes up to 125 psig and 16? diameter.
