MGM MACAU is a unique property located on a prime waterfront site in Macau. With 582 rooms, the 35-storey hotel tower rises 154 meters into the sky, the glass exterior reflecting the hues of the South China Sea and the swell of the ocean surf.

The existing steam system in MGM consisted of two large boilers providing steam to the laundry and kitchen, in addition to producing hot water for mechanical services and domestic requirements. Due to a change of use and operation, the boilers were found to be considerably oversized for the actual site demands.

Cundall was engaged by MGM to provide MEP consultancy to replace the steam boilers with heat recovery heat pumps to separate the hot water systems from the steam production. To work out the correct sizing of heat pumps, extensive site measurements were conducted to evaluate the loading profile in different seasons.

We provided conceptual and schematic design for the new steam boilers and water-source heat pump system, to facilitate the tendering to a design and build contractor. During the construction stage, we were also responsible for the review of detail designs submitted by the contractor and for the testing and commissioning activities.
