The Board did not hire a Construction Manager, so our architect Peter Marren has taken on much of the work of connecting the necessary people: Condon (Civil/Structural), Burger (Builder), Kolb (Mechanical), Paetzel (Landscape Designer), etc.
Geothermal was a suggestion from our builder, Eugene Burger. Burger and Kolb are working on a design that incorporates geothermal. We are requesting a firm price for the complete geothermal project — and also the cost without doing it.
Kolb Mechnical is a premier heating and air conditioning company in eastern Long Island, and they have considerable (and successful) experience in geothermal. I am sure they will provide us with a list of other projects they have done and answer any questions we may have. Kolb has worked collaboratively with Burger on many projects.
I mention geothermal now because (only) recently Burger suggested it. And we are looking into it.
We are moving along with the whole project, as we should be.
