Baseboard heating tie-in to electric water heater

Gordon_2 Member Posts: 1
I am doing an apartment project where the owner & his consulting engineer has mandated that a 119 gal elec water heater be used in each apartment to provide potable hot water and circulate potable hot water thru baseboard convectors via a heating loop. I am looking for thoughts on how to best connect the baseboard loop to the cold & hot water inlet/outlets on the water heaters - there are no hydronic taps on the sides of the tanks, a heat exchanger is also out of the question, there is no hot water return from the potable water fixtures.
