For this very complex project, APG constructed a brand new Central Energy Plant to service the St. Joseph's Hospitals 2.4 million square foot main campus in Tampa. Housing six generators, medium voltage switchgear, and a new SCADA system, careful planning and coordination was implemented to safely connect the new power distribution in each of the active buildings on campus, all while keeping the existing emergency power systems in place to maintain patient safety. These changeovers were executed seamlessly.
APG Engineering provided intensive Virtual Design and Construction services to effectively coordinate the many miles of conduit installed for this project. Further, an intensive ARC hazard analysis was conducted for the entire campus distribution system.
