Bellevue Men’s Shelter - Electric and Generator Service Upgrade
New York, NY
Two part project to replace existing building switchgear and provide new emergency generator systems. Work was primarily in roof-top penthouse and cellar of 15 story Bellevue Men’s Shelter Building in New York City. New ATS in cellar, new electrical; service in penthouse, new emergency generator in penthouse. Access through one small internal elevator, and hoisting from street. Associated mechanical and plumbing works included generator exhaust systems and new HVAC systems within penthouse. Structural works included complex upgrades and additions to steel support systems and grating. Architectural works were complicated by historical requirements to facade for new louvers and intakes and exterior walls. Phased project, with ATS feeders traveling from the cellar, through the building, to the penthouse, with associated fire-rated shafts. Building remaining occupied during construction. Feasibility study through CD phase, working with a very tight accelerated design schedule to meet mandated end-client schedule requirements.
