FOREST ELECTRIC VALUE DELIVERED
The ability for Sprint to meet expanding needs and continue growing its business.
ELECTRICAL SERVICES SCOPE OF WORK
Forest Electric installed general power and lighting systems, as well as fire alarm, life safety and security systems. The electrical installation included six uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems with associated battery racks, six main distribution units, 18 power distribution units with associated panels, plus static switches and harmonic filters. In addition, the work included a switchboard room that houses the switchgear, UPS equipment, and battery racks. Forest Electric also pulled 85 risers from the basement to the 10th floor and the roof, and installed close to 7,000 feet of aluminum conduit on the roof.
Forest Electric also installed four electrical generators that feed Sprint’s new web-hosting facility in New York. These required an extensive amount of emergency power backup equipment to protect the integrity of the firm’s mission-critical web-based business.
