Clinton Correctional Facility - Upgrade Electrical and Provide Walls and Ceilings

Project

Replace existing electrical wiring and devices in Building No. 23, including asbestos abatement of existing cloth wiring and abatement of walls and ceilings.  Renovations included work on the second and third floor of the building for offices, inmate activity rooms, inmate vocational spaces and classrooms serving approximately 70 inmates.

M/E Role

Design originally started as a design, bid, build project and was later revised to become a project in the OGS Job Order Contracting Program.  The design included routing new feeders from the basement up to the second and third floor.  The second floor included a complete rehabilitation of the electrical systems including removal and replacement of existing panel boards, lighting, exit signs, and receptacles.  Fire alarm devices were reused where possible and new devices provided for complete coverage.  The third floor was partially renovated including the removal and replacement of existing panel boards and the addition of emergency lighting, exit signs and power circuits to the law library.

Challenges

Design included extensive coordination with OGS and the facility to determine conduit supports to fasten to existing structure to minimize asbestos removals. Coordination with DOCCS was also required to be sure security fixtures, devices and door hardware met standards and were located where necessary.
