Request for Professional Services Qualifications (QBS): Burrill Hall Electrical Infrastructure Upgrade
First published Friday, February 10, 2006
Project Description
This project proposes a review and enhancement of electrical infrastructure changes originally proposed in the Burrill Hall Facility Master Plan, completed in February, 2002. As described in that study, infrastructure modifications were to include the following programmatic changes: Increase in electrical service to the building to two 750kVA services and replacement of existing switchgear, existing circuits re-landed onto new switch gear, installation of a new emergency generator, automatic transfer switch, distribution panel, and empty conduits to each floor, including the mechanical penthouse. Additional work which may be necessary to address existing power deficiencies on the 4th and 5th floors includes: Installation of new bus duct to relieve a current overload condition, and re-landing existing room panels to the new 5th floor bus duct.
