FitzGerald and Snow
FitzGerald and Snow (2010) Ltd is a full service commercial general contracting firm based in Summerside, PEI.
On December 17, Superior Propane proposed a new mobile boiler solution available from one of our suppliers, Wolseley Canada Inc. The advantages of using mobile boilers are that they are hooked into the propane supply and can be deployed directly to a worksite quickly and safely.
This boiler solution provided temporary construction heat by employing the following:
- 50 hydronic air handlers that converted hot water to warm air for a total of 1.9 million BTU/hour
- 160,000 litres of propane
- One trailer
On December 21, FitzGerald and Snow agreed with the solution, and we had to move quickly to implement it without losing any time. Superior Propane’s regional operations team searched within our delivery network and located two 2900-gallon tanks in our Dartmouth, Nova Scotia facility and had them shipped to PEI within two days. Superior’s operations team was instrumental in providing the technical knowledge and guidance for specifying BTU requirements, tank sizing and building code requirements.
Now well into the holiday season and shutdown schedules, Superior called on one of our certified partners, Joe Corrigan Mechanical, to make the propane, hydronic and electrical connections to the building from the mobile boiler room in addition to running all hoses and wires. The boiler solution was hooked up and operational on Christmas Eve.
Not only did Superior oversee the logistics of commissioning this specialized solution, we worked closely with the local propane inspector to ensure the equipment and setup met all regulatory requirements. Superior partners with the construction industry’s best manufacturers, service and rental companies for our customers’ power, heat and equipment needs.
“Superior Propane proved to be the experts in specialized propane equipment and applications.”
“Superior worked within their own delivery network and with their certified partner network to efficiently implement a solution and they will be our first call for future projects requiring out-of-the-box thinking.”
