Royal Oak, Michigan
Peter Basso Associates (PBA) provided mechanical engineering and electrical engineering design services to upgrade the Emergency Power System (EPSS-2) at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak campus. The project involved providing construction documents to upgrade the EPS, which was designed in two phases.
Phase 1 consisted of verifying the existing EPS, including five emergency generators, paralleling switchgears and seven generator distribution panels. Two generator distribution panels and two generators were in need of replacing; one generator was 750 kW and the other was 900kW. Both were replaced with 2000 kW generators. New mechanical supply fans were required for each of the new generators, as well as lighting for the generators and paralleling switchgear rooms. Four sections of paralleling switchgear were also provided. Three of the seven existing generator distribution panels were transferred to the new paralleling switchgear, along with control wires for each.
Phase 2 involved transferring the remaining four generator distribution panels from the old paralleling switchgear to the new one, along with the associated control wires. In addition, PBA provided MEP engineering design for upgrading the existing emergency control panels of the three generators to communicate with the new paralleling switchgear. Electrical feeders and controls were also provided and connected to the existing generators and the new paralleling switchgears.
PBA was requested to provide MEP engineering design services for the phased renovation of approximately 20,000 sf of floor space in the HFMC ambulatory surgery department.Learn More →
