The value of a masterplan is most valuable on the day it is published and needs to be continuously re-visited to maintain that value. This presentation will demonstrate why revisiting the Masterplan as campus plans change can result in changes to the original concept and a more efficient and reliable Central Utility Plant. The focus will be a Case Study on the Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU) South Energy Center (SEC) serving the UF Health Shands campus and the history of how economics required the utility plant to evolve from the original master plan concept.The SEC was originally constructed for a final buildout of two 4.5 MW Combustion Turbines, each with a HRSG.
