SALT WATER PUMPING SYSTEM

Services

Assessment  |  Design  |  Repairs (2018)

Amorient investigated the root cause of the pump failures in the salt water pumping system at the University of Guam Hatchery, and recommend a remedy. The assessment involved:

  • Visual inspection of GPA overhead incoming distribution line

  • Thermal imaging survey of the electrical system

  • Power quality monitoring over 1 week

  • Detailed inspection of the electrical system

  • Engineering analysis and code review

  • Assessment of the mechanical installation

  • Development of 2 conceptual designs for the pumping system with cost estimates.

Amorient was subsequently tasked with managing electrical repairs.

Hardening of buildings at University of Guam

BUILDING HARDENING

Services:

Grant Application  |  Design (2017)

Amorient was instrumental in the successful grant application in 2013 for a Pre-Disaster Mitigation assistance for two metal buildings on the campus of the University of Guam.

 

The buildings were surveyed and found to have inadequate reinforcement to withstand the requirements of a 170mph wind loading as required by local code. 

Amorient did a cost comparison between hardening methods of sheet metal siding versus concrete block, and an option to apply a new metal roof over the existing roof with insulation in between was also explored to minimize disruption to classroom schedules.

 

Amorient provided a detailed analysis of the existing structure and developed a design and technical package for Invitation for Bids (IFB).
