MITIGATION EXPERIENCE

The concept we have perfected is to take cigarette smoke laden air out of a casino and replace it with fresh outside air. During this process the energy from the previously tempered casino air is transferred in to the fresh air supply with a net transferred energy of approximately 60% depending on the temperature extremity of the outside fresh air. This is done with strategically located energy recovery equipment at various rooftop locations throughout a casino facility. It is a phased process that involves work on the rooftop, in the attic and ceiling areas. We can act as the Prime Contractor for this work or in the subcontractor capacity. All of the mechanical design is produced in-house using CAD software as well as the shop fabrication and installation. Our success with Environmental Tobacco Smoke Mitigation have been recognized by drastically reduced customer smoke complaints, awards, articles and TV interviews.

AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION HONORS

CLEAN-AIR PROJECT GREEN INITIATIVES

AT THE PEPPERMILL RESORT SPA CASINO

The American Lung Association is dedicated to ensuring an environment of healthy and safe air, outdoors and indoors, across Nevada. The newly developed clean air program at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino removes 123,400 cubic feet per minute of smoke-laden air from the casino floor through a leading energy recovery ventilation system.

“The American Lung Association is honored to present this award to a leading partner in this important initiative,”
said Frankie Vigil, executive director of American Lung Association in Nevada. “We hope that through this dinner
we are able to raise awareness of the necessity and ease
of implementing projects like this across Nevada.”

Data from the Peppermill’s research on the effectiveness
of last year’s clean-air project shows a major return on investment for the resort’s $600,000 venture into clean resort air. The yearlong study, conducted in 2014-15, showed a massive $131,615 savings in electrical energy usage and 866.47 metric tons of CO2 emissions savings from previous years. The savings comes from nine Greenheck ERV units installed on the casino floor that recover 78 percent of the energy used to clean the air.

The ERV units use both outside and inside air to mix 123,400 CFM of fresh air to the casino floor while simultaneously removing the interior stale air. Previously, the Peppermill only took in outside air. Harnessing inside and outside air creates a dramatically improved casino environment and energy savings, and now allows for 100 percent fresh air intake, 24 hours a day.
