Fēnix Energy’s installation of ETFO’s geo-exchange system set a new precedent in construction methodology.
“The later installation of the geothermal system allowed the contractor a three-month head start on constructing the building, explains Sosio Porretta, Bird’s project director.”
Using proprietary technology, Fēnix started the geo-exchange installation after the building’s first three floors were in place, allowing for trades to be on-site, working in parallel with the drilling process. This is in sharp contrast to traditional installations, where the installation begins immediately after the site excavation, extending the project timeline. Fēnix Energy’s innovative system also provides permanent access to the boreholes for ongoing maintenance and troubleshooting.
