2 2 A/E Emergency Generator Upgrade Building Outstanding Engineering Achievement Award Selection Criteria in Order of Importance 1.Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions 2.Demonstrate the importance of the engineering profession to society 3.Demonstrate a clear and tangible benefit to the Delaware Valley Region

3 3 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Present Facility Site Plan Work Statement 1.Provide all design services including investigating surveys and verification of as-built conditions as required to fully develop construction documents for the construction of a new Emergency Generator Building to Service Buildings 1,2 and 21.

4 4 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Construction Area Site Plan

5 5 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 2.Copy of a previous study and preliminary and 35% drawings were be provided.  Job # 1 – Convince client to start over!  Provide new approach: Using 13.2 KV Generators Using Modular Prefab Generator Bldgs Emergency Power Feeders are always energized providing better reliability.

6 6 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions New Functional System Diagram

7 7 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 3.Mission Critical – Capable of Continuing Operation during times if War, National Security Emergencies and of mitigating the effects of natural and man made disasters The Physical Security Design Manual has the requirement for 96 hour fuel supply, as does NFPA 110 for Seismic Design Category C installations. Provide N + 1 power source on site for critical loads.

8 8 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 4. System should not raise the noise level or disturb the tranquility of the neighbors.

9 9 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 5. Develop phasing plan to maintain emergency power during construction.

10 10 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 6.Keep N+1 to Critical Loads during construction.

11 11 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 7.Provide 96 Hours of back up fuel that will only be used if both MV Services are lost.

12 12 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 8.Meet requirements for Seismic Design Category – “C”

13 13 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 9.Provide Control and Monitoring Systems with documents for Joint Commission.

14 14 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 10.LEED Certification!

15 15 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 11.Power System and Arc Flash Studies

16 16 Demonstrate engineering challenges and innovative solutions Work Statement 12.Complete Conceptual and Detail Designs and Specifications in 16 Weeks!

17 17 Design Team Maida Engineering, Inc Metcalfe Architecture and Design Hunt Engineering Company Mark J. Kucirka Urban Technologies, Inc. Demonstrate the importance of the engineering profession to society

18 18 Demonstrate the importance of the engineering profession to society Final Product Demo and Installation – Building 6

19 19 Final Product Demo and Installation – Building 16 Demonstrate the importance of the engineering profession to society

20 20 Final Product Demo and Installation – Building 2 and 8 Demonstrate the importance of the engineering profession to society

21 21 Final Product Modifications throughout the Entire Hospital Demonstrate the importance of the engineering profession to society

22 22 Final Product Installation – New Emergency Power Source Demonstrate the importance of the engineering profession to society

23 23 Power Loads and Priority Load Shedding Critical Loads – Priority 1 – 1, KW Equipment Loads – Priority 2 – 1, KW Energy Center Loads (Building 6 and 8) – Priority 1 – Not listed, estimated to be 120 KW Chiller Plant Equipment Load – Priority 3 – 1,000 KW Total of all Essential Emergency Loads is 3,998 KW Demonstrate the importance of the engineering profession to society

24 24 Demonstrate the importance of the engineering profession to society Project was based on the creativity, experience and knowledge of engineers. Project was led by engineers Construction will be controlled by engineers Commissioning will be performed by engineers

25 25 Demonstrate the importance of the engineering profession to society Functional requirements were defined by engineers Life Safety was enhanced by engineers Systems will or have been designed by engineers System programming will be done by engineers

26 26 Demonstrate a clear and tangible benefit to the Delaware Valley Region Stimulus money paid local architect and engineers Construction will be in the Delaware Valley The local VA hospital can better serve an expanding number of veterans The facility was designed to be Mission Critical
