Our sales team has the knowledge and understanding to walk engineers through the different options from packaged or field erected boilers to deciding the right turn down ratios. Our team has had numerous projects with the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA), New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), and The City University of New York (CUNY), along with the private sector. We have experience working with engineers and knowing what they want and how to meet their needs. We provide project submittals to aid in the approval process and are available to answer questions regarding design, specifications, and the operation of the equipment being used on job sites.
Here are just a few successful projects our experienced team at The Boileroom Group has completed:

The newly passed Local Law 97 is an important piece of legislation that was passed as part of NYC’s Climate Mobilization Act. LL97 sets the citywide requirement for buildings 25,000 square feet and larger to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by the year 2030, and 80 percent by 2050. This new local law seeks to lower emissions from existing buildings, impacting over 57,000 buildings across the city.
Buildings in New York City has already had local laws in place, which required buildings to comply with energy and carbon emissions standards such as Local Law 87, which requires retro-commissioning and an energy audit every 10 years for buildings over 50,000 square feet, and Local Laws 33 and 84, which require annual rating and benchmarking of energy and water consumption within New York City buildings over 25,000 square feet. Buildings which were not able to comply were able to pay a fine than to update existing infrastructure to a more sustainable and smarter alternative.
Local Law 97 takes a different approach by providing a straightforward threshold on the amount of greenhouse gas emissions a building can have. Buildings in New York City will have to reduce their carbon footprint through intense energy retrofits by 2030 to avoid fines of $268 per ton of carbon emissions in excess of the building’s limit. The fines associated with noncompliance are issued annually, making every ton over the limit for every year will continually accrue. These steeper fines will make non-compliance to regulations no longer worth it as it will cost more than actual compliance.
The Boileroom Group offers products that can help buildings stay compliant to LL97 regulations. When used in the right application, our heating equipment can help lower emissions and reduce the overall carbon footprint of NYC buildings.
