ELECTRICAL SERVICES SCOPE OF WORK
Insignia/ESG retained Forest Electric for a massive electrical infrastructure upgrade at 111 Eighth Avenue, NY. The goal of this undertaking was to enable the commercial property to meet the sophisticated technology requirements of its tenants as they do business in the new millennium.
This project involved the electrical construction upgrade of the entire 2.4 million sq. ft. office building, which required the provision of new service to both existing and new tenants. Forest Electric, serving as prime contractor, installed a 12-megawatt electrical generator system; a 160,000 gallon fuel farm; and vertical bus duct risers with 20,000 amps of electrical power distribution capacity for normal power and 16,000 amps for emergency power.
Forest Electric’s scope of work also included the construction of electrical closets as well as the installation of transfer switches and an annunciator system.
With Forest Electric serving as the single-source vendor, Insignia/ESG was able to expedite the electrical upgrade at 111 Eighth Avenue, New York. The commercial office building now is positioned for continued success well into the 21st century.
