Lowell General Hospital Electrical Infrastructure
Project Featured On Home Page
This $5,300,000 project consisted of the renovation and upgrade of Lowell General Hospital’s 500 sq.ft. campus normal and emergency electrical systems over 19 months. MEC was responsible for renovations to the existing and construction of an addition for the new diesel fire pump and creation of new 2 hour rated emergency electrical rooms. Installation of duct banks ran through the parking lot and pedestrian walkways requiring close scheduling and coordination with hospital security.
A temporary pump was installed to maintain the responsibility of the existing fire protection system during and prior to installation of the new fire pump. ASHE standards and strict guidelines from the hospitals infection control officer were followed.
MEC performing 95% of the labor maintained the level of quality it is known for.
The complexity of removing and installing an existing electrical service and fire pump all while a 500 sq.ft. working hospital continued its day to day operations makes this a notable project. The coordination with the hospital staff was critical during switch over’s and was a key element for the success of this project.
