UPS & Generator Upgrade Building 857, Gunter Annex

Maxwell Air Force Base, Florida | 14,600 sf | $19m

GCAG provided project management and design services to replace the UPS and power generators in Building 857, a mission critical facility. The existing rotary UPS system was both time consuming and expensive to maintain. The upgrade effectively doubled the facility’s electrical capacity. The complex project required that all existing service be maintained during the renovations with upgrades staged to ensure that at least N capability was maintained throughout the entire project. A complete phasing plan was included.

A fully redundant HVAC system was provided and the thermal envelope was enhanced to support the system. New finishes, including floors and ceilings, were specified. Because the building is considered to be of historical significance, all proposed alterations required proper approval.
