This project consisted of two separate facilities, with the C.E.T.F. as the larger of the two. This 347,000 sq. ft. three-story science facility houses laboratories, classrooms, and staff offices. The facility includes two double-ended 15kV unit substations, extensive 15kV underground site distribution and communication duct bank special systems that include fire alarm, security, paging, CCTV and tele/data networking with fiber optics and Category 5 cabling.
The observatory was a fast track 3,000 square foot structure designed to accommodate the Academy’s two existing telescopes, which are located approximately 800 feet east of the new C.E.T.F.
We provide electrical construction solutions that can serve the life of a building with commitment to safe and quality services backed by our strong history of successful projects.
