  • Disney Boardwalk

This 1,000-plus-room hotel resort is located at the Walt Disney World Resort. It is the final element to Disney s waterfront boardwalk located adjacent to Disney s Yacht and Beach Club, Dolphin, and Swan Resorts. It features a 20,000 square foot convention center, three entertainment clubs, three specialty restaurants, three pools, more than a dozen specialty shops, along with hotel rooms and vacation time-shares. The hotel complex includes a massive site plan illuminated by more than 1,000 custom-made site lighting fixtures. In addition to the site work, Regency Electric provided services to three swimming pools, which are equipped with separate pump houses and food and beverage facilities. Inside, there are more than 800 electric panel boards provided throughout the complex. The main lobby to this hotel features one of Disney s largest chandeliers. This chandelier is more than 60 feet long and 40 feet wide, and weighs in excess of 2,000 pounds. A new central energy plant, consisting of two 4,000A services, was constructed to feed a downstream distribution system made up of 480/277V and 120/208V electrical systems. This system is distributed throughout 30 electrical rooms, not including more than 800 distribution centers assigned to separate suites. The emergency power system is comprised of three emergency generators, which are capable of distributing approximately 1,000 KW of emergency power. Electrical provisions are made to support the HVAC system, which consists of stacked AHUs and central energy plant chillers with a capacity in excess of 1,300 tons. Regency also provided the fire alarm, security, lightning protection, and data/voice systems throughout the entire complex. An audio/visual system was provided for the convention center and common areas of the project. Specialty space extending the length of the Boardwalk includes the ESPN Sports Bar complete with TV production capabilities, the Flying Fish Cafe, Wylands Arts Gallery, Dueling Pianos, Dance Hall, plus many more custom shops and restaurants.
