Project Description

This renovation project turned office space into a state-of-the-art scientific lab for molecular genetics and genomes research.

Capital Electric installed a new 480-v, 2500-amp normal power service, as well as a 480v 2000a emergency power system. This included installation of six transfer switches and one 45-kVA UPS.

The 750-kW emergency generator was installed outdoors and concealed below grade in a concrete vault. LED accent cove lighting was installed on the genomics side of the renovation. Installations also included a new tele-data service and data center, an addressable fire alarm system, medical gas alarm and a card access system. Overhead cranes were used to complete this project.
