Johns Hopkins University | Applied Physics Laboratory Building Life Safety
This project consisted of the separation of an existing building emergency power system into two separate and distinct branches, the emergency power branch (life safety) and the standby power branch. Prior to construction the existing emergency power system served both life safety and standby power loads intermingled on a single common emergency power branch. This project included all work required to set up two separate and distinct emergency power distribution branches and extend the existing branch circuits to the appropriate emergency power branch. Additionally, the project involved the separation of life safety loads on the building’s existing generator and extensive circuitry reworking. Work was completed amid ongoing work on campus where function could not be interrupted.
