UTMB at Galveston Infrastructure Project


UTMB Infrastructure Hardening Project
Bocci performed operational modeling, forecasting and Life Cycle Cost Analysis of over 50 alternatives for the rebuilding and hardening of thermal and power utility distribution infrastructure at the UTMB-Galveston campus. Bocci produced feasibility assessments for Combined Heat and Power, desalination and potable water storage, waste water reject, with federal economic Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA) program guidelines for FEMA funding and environmental impacts assessments. The preliminary recommendation was for a 30 MW electricity, 300 klb/hr steam and 43 ktons cooling.

“Bocci has been able to deliver on our projects time and again despite large tasks and tight timelines. Their technical work is of high quality and they frequently bring new ideas and perspectives to the team.”
Steve Frei, Principal, AEI

Solar Hot Water

Solar Hot Water

Bocci performed the solar hot water system project development and implementation inspection activities. Bocci designed an integrated on-site Solar Hot Water heat recovery system for the City of Houston’s Metropolitan Multi-Service Center facility therapeutic pool. The goal was to reduce the facility’s demand for natural gas to heat both the pool and domestic hot water with proven technology renewable solar energy. The project achieved:

  • 25%-50% solar thermal heat
  • Over 25% utility costs
  • 4 month implementation
  • Carbon emissions – 24 tons per year


“Bocci is a trusted partner of SBT. They perform exceptional energy and environmental consulting work, with full design capability. Bocci has added real value to our portfolio.”

OIS / Pemex, Gulf of Mexico


ISO 9001, Turbine Control OIS / Pemex

Bocci was contracted as the owner’s representative for detailed inspection of an enclosure structure being manufactured for a process critical turbine control room and containment on an offshore platform in the Gulf of Mexico. The owner required ISO 9000 compliance, weekly construction inspections and schedule management for this critical path unit under a rigid delivery schedule. The services included inspection and reporting on all purchasing activities, production and fabrication inspections, mechanical, structural, electrical, HVAC, and instrumentation and controls engineering documentation, quality control, budget control and specification compliance. Weekly coordination with the owner included status reports on all activities. The completed construction met all design, specification, compliance and schedule requirements before being shipped off shore for installation in the Gulf of Mexico by OIS.

Almeda Sims Wastewater Treatment Plant

Alemda Sims plant

Bocci performed the feasibility and preliminary engineering phases, as well as supported production of the design-build Request For Proposal of an energy optimization project at the Almeda Sims Wastewater Treatment Plant. The solution integrated an on-site Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system into the new sludge drying operations plant. The goal was to reduce the natural gas consumption and environmental impact for this municipal wastewater plant, located in an EPA Non-Attainment area. The system entailed integrated high temperature recovery of 9.9 MMBtuH heat with the process rotary drum dryers, a 1.4MW clean burn gas turbine and achieved over 30% operational efficiency improvement and reduced 6 tons NOx annually. Bocci developed various designs and cost options, power interconnection, environmental and permitting strategies.

“Bocci Engineering is a valued partner in our goals of improving human and ecosystem well-being through the application of sustainability science and principles of sustainable development”.
