Level 3 Ashburn

Level 3 Ashburn

This project involved the build out of existing warehouse space into a mix use space. VarcoMac installed 35 kV medium voltage service into switchgear for two redundant power feeds. Each feed supplies power to an oil filled transformer and a 4,000 amp switchboard. A 2.5mW generator was tied into the switchboards to provide backup power to the facility. VarcoMac also completed three electrical rooms providing branch circuits and lighting for the entire space. Due to scheduling constraints and multiple design changes, VarcoMac had to work overtime in order to complete all 408 feeder terminations inside the switchboards in a fifteen day window, and had only five days to pull all of the 600 MCM feeder cables.

This project received a 2016 Washignton Building Congress Craftsmanship Award for Power Generation, Distribution & Switchgear.
