Mechanical Engineering Intern, Syracuse University Campus Planning, Design & Construction Office May 2017 – Present

• Determined feasibility of upgrading a constant flow system to variable flow for a building’s hot water system through pressure drop calculations and then performing building simulation using HAP software to compare the energy savings based on the proposed piping system alterations

• Created an Excel spreadsheet calculator for evaluating effects of multiple system design constraints on the total heat transfer rate for a piping loop under an ice rink in order to optimize maximum heat loss with minimal system pumping power

• Analyzed HVAC systems and conducted on site verification to construct accurate exhaust system riser diagrams using AutoCAD

• Interpreted MEP drawings and reviewed submittals to compile a report on the total system volume of propylene glycol contained within the HVAC units and piping loops of all SU buildings Engineering Projects
