“The capstone of the two-day event continues to be the “Top-Job” competition. Among the entries included the impressive St. Patrick’s Cathedral geothermal conversion in Manhattan and the William F. Buck Middle School conversion from the public city water mains in Valley Stream, New York.
With such an impressive list of entries, the decision was difficult for the panel of judges. The 72-unit Lockport Housing Authority geothermal conversion won the day. Jens Ponikau of Buffalo Geothermal in Cheektowaga, New York, worked closely with the housing authority to convert the facility with a small footprint on time and on budget.” – theNEWS
