The objective of the project is the design for the replacement of comprehensive electrical services and power distribution within the Brinkhous-Bullitt Building on central campus. The project scope includes programming, design development, construction documents, bidding, construction administration and close-out.
The Brinkhous-Bullitt Building was completed in 1973 to house research facilities for the School of Medicine. It is a twelve-story high-rise building located at 160 Medical Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27514 (Building Number 228) Today it is home to the departments of Cardiovascular Science and Medicine, Pathology Laboratory Medicine-Research, Pathology Laboratory Medicine-Nephropath, Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, TraCS Institute, UNC Hospitals and a morgue (w/special temporary power requirements).
Assess existing conditions of the electrical normal and on-site alternate power services and distribution systems. Assist Facilities Engineering with prioritizing line items listed below. Provide detailed market-near construction cost estimates for each line item during each project phase. Careful attention to project phasing and implementation will
be required to limit disruptions to building occupants.
- Identify and segregate alternate power loads into Emergency, Legally Required and Optional power distribution
branches for current building code compliance.
- Combine three UNC-EDS service transformers and service switchboards into a single 480Y/277V service with dry-type
step-down transformers to supply 208Y/120V power. Any contributing EDS funding will enter the cost estimating.
- Assess distribution panelboard and feeder conditions and design the system towards 30 year remaining useful service
- Assess branch circuit panelboard, feeder and branch circuit conditions and design the system towards 30 year remaining useful service life post-project. Replace any circuits without dedicated equipment grounding conductors.
Design Services shall include Architecture, Electrical, Civil, and Abatement Design as required. The design team will be responsible for Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Documentation, Phasing Plans (as may be necessary); and Construction Administration services.
Current UNC Design Guidelines will be used during the course of the project.
The project delivery method shall be Single Prime Bid and Contract.
