The project consists of replacing two (2) 475 kVA emergency paralleled generators in the sub-plaza level of the Government Center. The existing generators along with the existing paralleling gear, exhaust, fuel, cooling, and branch circuit systems shall be demolished and replaced. In detail these include, but are not limited to: two (2) existing radiators in the pit adjacent to the generator room, the existing paralleling gear, the exhaust piping stack up to the roof level, all existing cooling and fuel piping, the existing fuel pumps, and all electrical branch circuit for ancillary generator loads.

A 1MW temporary generator shall be provided and installed by the electrical contractor adjacent to the street and exterior wall of the generator room to provide temporary backup power coverage while the existing gear systems are demolished and replaced. The general contractor is required to provide a construction schedule and participate in necessary pre-construction and construction progress meetings during the duration of the project. The City shall provide a commissioning agent to develop all commissioning scripts and testing procedures at the conclusion of construction activities.
