Generator Plant Dallas, Texas

Cost: $13 million

Size: 7,400 sf

Project Details

This 7,400 square foot building was constructed to house six emergency engines to backup up an adjacent high rise Data & Telecommunication Facility.

Connectivity was required to new paralleling switchgear in the adjacent high rise via under street routing. The BSA Design Team and consultants implemented a cost savings idea to utilize existing chilled water piping that was abandoned in the previous year for all required current and future conduit/feeds and control cabling routes. This improved the schedule and budget.

Many City developmental challenges and innovative acoustical designs were necessary to meet the City of Dallas PD Zoning constraints and the City of Dallas Sound Ordinance requirements and still meet the engine air flow specifications and City PD setback and building location requirements.
