- 30-Year Extension of Building Life
Projects / Residential
Affinity by Bosa is a beautiful two-tower residential building with a fitness centre, social lounge and landscaped roof-top garden. Due to a neighbourhood power-grid upgrade, the building needed an electrical distribution upgrade.
Our team installed and commissioned new transformer and switchgear components to upgrade the building’s power from 12.5kV to 25kV. This upgrade helped the building meet the new power-grid requirements, extended the life of the building by 30 years, saved energy costs through standardized ENERCAN technology, and improved the safety of building operations.
While transformer and switchgear replacements can require lengthy shutdown times, our talented crew was able to move the 14,000-pound equipment down two levels of parkade and complete the installation in just 16 hours. We also provided a backup generator for the duration of the shutdown to minimize disruption for residents and building operations.
