James Mullen , vice president of Thermal Ventures , said the company could provide heating and cooling temporarily by installing boilers and chillers on the Vancouvercenter site while it awaits approval for the permanent plant
We've done it in a lot of major cities , Mullen
said.We did it for six months in Pittsburgh for the museum when we were building a line extension..
Thermal Ventures manages heating and cooling for more than 450 buildings in the United States , including the Andy Warhol Museum
in Pittsburgh , Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond , Va. , and several facilities in Youngstown and Akron , Ohio.
said the city also wanted to see plans that include other buildings Thermal Ventures is hoping to serve , including Smith Tower , the new West Coast Bank building , the M.J. Murdock Executive Plaza , the Bank of America Financial Center
, the Riverview Bank Tower and the county jail.
Once that information is complete , the city would schedule a pre-application conference.Even then , final approval still could be months away , and the project also requires various other state and city permits.
I would probably describe it as being in a kind of unpredictable zone , said Othman.I'm not sure it can fit our schedule..
