BC Hydro Nanaimo District Office
The new operations facility for BC Hydro’s Nanaimo District office is a 100,000 square foot facility built to replace the previous infrastructure. It includes administrative offices, industrial garages, interior cranes, a service pit, emergency generator, and warehousing. The building conforms to LEED® standards and is engineered for post disaster specifications.
This was a multi-phase project over the course of three years. We delivered a full electrical and technology scope, including electrical distribution, structured cabling, backup power, security raceways, fire alarm to multiple site buildings, digital metering system, power monitoring, lighting, lighting controls, and audio visual.
Despite several schedule delays and design changes, our careful planning and coordination with the construction team allowed us to exceed the expectations of the general contractor. We also used Lean methodology to maximize productivity on-site.
