AAA High School

  • AAA High School

Awarded as a design-build project, the site was undeveloped, requiring utilities to be extended from over a mile away. Renamed the Atlantic Coast High School, it has one 4000-amp, three 3000-amp and one 2500-amp commercial 480V services backed up with a 750kw generator and two automatic transfer switches. All switchgear, transformers, and panels were laid out by CAD for coordination with other trades. After the concrete slab was poured, the owner changed the design from individual branch circuits of various pieces of equipment to two utility distribution systems (UDS). The UDS provides single point connections for 208V power, Ansul fire suppression and hood control. For the UDS install, three panel board bussing interiors had to be re-built to accommodate the changes in breaker sizes as well as shunt trip requirements to code. Regency proceeded on all owner change orders, increasing the original scope by almost 50%, with no additional time added to the completion date. This achieved the owners goals within GCs time frame, and the Atlantic Coast High School was opened on time as scheduled and under budget.
