HCR Manor Care Miami Lakes HVAC Generator Upgrade

SGM provided new level 1 diesel gas generator with missile impact resistant enclosure and service entrance Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS). The ATS and generator were sufficient to handle the existing facility peak demand load which includes power to maintain ambient temperature of 80 degrees or less for a period of not less than 96 hours in the event of normal power failure. With this upgrade, SGM also provided power feeders to the ATS from the normal utility source transformer and new 350KW generator. SGM ensured that lightning protection was added to the new generator enclosure.

Phasing of this work was provided to maintain power to the facility at all times except for a maximum of 4 hour shut down to allow for transfer of power from the existing utility feed to the new combined ATS feeder to the main switchgear. The grounding was revised to provide for the new grounded conductor bond connection locations to the existing grounding electrode during the shut down periods. With proactive coordination and communication, this project was completed on-time and within budget.
