CHESAPEAKE COMMONS

This was a unique project in that the original coal boilers vented through an extremely large chimney that caused excessive cooling and condensation with the current natural gas configuration. CRS engineered and installed a combination of Olympic flexible and rigid sectional stainless steel linings to improve efficiency and reduce condensation.

DC PUBLIC SCHOOLS

DC PUBLIC SCHOOLS (ONGOING)

The DC Public School System is undergoing an extensive renovation of their school boilers and chimney stacks. In 2003 and 2004, this firm installed boiler chimney stacks for twelve public schools with chimneys ranging from approximately sixty to one hundred and forty feet in height. Most required installation of one or more flues using chimney breaching material manufactured by Selkirk-Metalbestos.In some cases, interior firebrick was removed prior to installing the linings.


BELLE HAVEN COUNTRY CLUB  

During a complete renovation project, eight new fireplaces were constructed in various locations throughout the building. In most instances, there was no direct access through the structure to the roof. Each chimney was required to terminate at pre-designed chimney locations. CRS engineered and installed double-wall Selkirk Metalbestos Class-A chimneys in a variety of sizes and complicated configurations to allow termination at the designated locations while maintaining required clearance to combustibles within the building

CALVERT HOUSE

CALVERT HOUSE, WASHINGTON, DC.

This was a one hundred and twenty-five foot masonry chimney with firebrick lining.  The brick had become dislodged from the outer courses of masonry and threatened to collapse.  Boiler exhaust infiltrated behind the firebrick course causing the exposed walls of the chimney within the building to become extremely hot to the touch.  Sixteen thousand firebricks were removed and a new Metal-Fab brand stainless steel pressure stack lining was installed.

 

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC WORLD HEADQUARTERS

This was another Washington, DC project in which a one hundred and twenty foot chimney was lined for the newly installed boilers using Selkirk Metalbestos stainless steel stack materials.

WILDWOOD TOWERS

Wildwood Towers is a thirteen story residential apartment complex located on Columbia Pike in Arlington, Virginia.  During the course of renovating the building, new boilers were to be installed along with lining of the masonry chimneys.  The interior size of the chimney was insufficient to install the required boiler stack.  Therefore, 24,000 interior firebricks were removed prior to installing a Selkirk-Metalbestos #316 alloy stainless steel pressure stack lining.  

 

WILDWOOD TERRACE

WILDWOOD TERRACE

A project similar to the one above was completed in an adjacent building in 2004 using the same methods and type of chimney lining material. Another project for this same owner has been contracted and is scheduled for the summer of 2006.

 

 

EMMANUEL EPISCOPAL CATHEDRAL-BALTIMORE

An oversized hundred and forty foot chimney and lack of access at the base prevented installation of a standard single-wall venting system for this installation. CRS engineered a double-wall stainless chimney system to serve two new boilers. The bottom portion was installed adjacent the original masonry chimney and penetrated to the interior at a point thirty feet from the base.

GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY STUDENT APARTMENT HOUSING GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY STUDENT APARTMENT HOUSING

The interior of the boiler stack in this eight story apartment building was in extremely poor condition as a result of having been used previously to vent a coal-fired appliance.  CRS renovated the interior and installed a Selkirk stainless steel vertical stack to isolate the flue gases and prevent further deterioration of the masonry.
