The Weill Greenberg Center Lowy and Donnath was able to negotiate the construction of the sidewalk Network Protector Vaults with Con Edison and construct these network vaults as part of this project thus expediting the completion of the incoming electric service by months.
Welch Hall Library Modernization and Restoration This being a historical renovation, Lowy and Donnath was able to value engineer the 5kV substation. By the use of a tri-plex transformer, Lowy and Donnath was able to install the substation into the building without structural modifications to the historical building.
Electrical Infrastructure Upgrade Installed new 4160V normal and emergency feeders and substations in an operating facility. Created new electric closets and extended existing loads to the new normal and emergency distribution.
Co-Generation Plant Coordinated with the hospital and Con Edison to arrange outages in an operating hospital to modify the existing sub-stations and transfer trip circuits for the six incoming 15kV primary services. Lowy and Donnath was retained by NYPH to bring the entire project thru the NYC Fire Department approval process.
Children's Hospital Lowy and Donnath was able to value engineer the use of the existing 480V network to energize the new Children's Hospital in lieu of three new Con Edison 120/208V services. This enabled an accelerated schedule, eliminated need for step-up transformers for motor loads, elevators, and the generator, as well as, creating additional space in the basement for other usage.
David H. Koch Ambulatory Care Center The project consisted of four 13.8kV services, three generators, ATSs, and fire alarm. Lowy and Donnath was also retained to provide preconstruction services.
North West Corner Building The building was constructed over the existing gymnasium and connected to existing Pupin and Havemeyer Halls. Coordination with the design team was provided to assure the installed distribution system and fire alarm system were in place to support future lab fit out projects. The US Green Building Council awarded the project LEED Gold.
CEPSR Transformer Upgrade Coordination with Con Edison was essential in scheduling feeder outages and re-connections, as the facility was to remain active while each service was upgraded. The installation required a custom gantry system to rig out the old equipment and rig in the new equipment, while still providing necessary working clearance for all other active equipment.
Children's Hospital The facility is served by six new 13.2kV services and associated switchgear which provides utility power for the 168th Street complex. The building was constructed between adjacent NYPH buildings. As a value engineering suggestion, the emergency generators and associated distribution were designed at medium voltage.
