UR New South Substation and Phase I Distribution System

University of Rochester -- Rochester, New York

CHA provided design and bidding phase services and is currently providing construction phase and commissioning support services for a new 75 MVA, 115/11.5 kV South Substation and a Phase I Distribution System project at the University of Rochester. The campus includes more than 200 acres, over 100 buildings, and a medical center that includes Strong Memorial Hospital. The campus electrical distribution system has grown substantially over the years and includes a large central cogeneration plant. Due to the expanding nature of the campus, it was necessary to provide a new source of supply from the utility company to accommodate the load growth.

Prior to starting the current project, CHA provided a comprehensive study and master plan for the campus electrical distribution system. This included investigation, alternatives of system modeling, and analyses required to develop a plan for the campus distribution system. This study was completed in 2012 and is the basis of design for the ongoing design and construction project.
