Puke Ariki Heating Energy Options study
This heating options study project was one of three we did for New Plymouth District Council.
The Puke Ariki complex comprises the central library building and the adjacent museum building.
The study started by assessing the existing heating infrastructure, energy consumption and associated financial and environmental costs.
We then identified six possible alternative heating energy options, and then in conjunction with the Client, these were reduced to a short list of four options to be assessed.
The options assessed in this study were:
Each option was financially and environmentally modelled over a 30-year time horizon and ranked from best to worst in each criteria.
