Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC)
Holyoke, MA

G.C. – Turner Construction
Architect – M+W U.S., Inc.
Engineer – M+W U.S., Inc.

MASSACHUSETTS GREEN HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING CENTER (MGHPCC)

Year Completed:  2012

Contract Amount:  $12,386,000

Size:  90,300 sq. ft.

Project Features: The MGHPCC is a data collection and storage facility specifically designed for the use of MIT, Northeastern University, Harvard University, University of Massachusetts, and Boston University. When completed, the data center will attain a LEED Gold Level Rating by the USGBC.

Challenges Faced: The very aggressive construction schedule, coupled with post-contract design refinements, required a 3D CAD/BIM effort that narrowly preceded the actual field installation of massive quantities of conduit, cable tray, and wire. Precise coordination of all deliveries (as well as prompt placement, installation, and commissioning of all equipment and wiring) were required to achieve the challenging occupancy dates required by the multiple users of the data center.

Ducci Scope of Work: Complete installation of all lighting, lighting control, lightning protection, switchboards, transformers, panels, bus duct, wiring devices, fire alarm, security and access control, EPO, and EPMS. Set in place and wire complete 13.8KV medium voltage switchgear, generators, automatic transfer switches, load banks, unit substations, 13.8KV transformers, medium voltage cabling and UPS units, all pre-purchased by Turner Logistics. Wire complete all mechanical equipment including chillers, air handlers, pumps, fans, boilers, and VFD units.

KLEEN ENERGY POWER PLANT

Year Completed:  2011

Contract Amount:  $58,089,410

Project Features: Kleen Energy is a 620MW 2x1 combined cycle power plant. It contains 2 combustion turbine generators (CTGs), 2 heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs), and a single steam turbine generator (STG)

Challenges Faced: Massive amount of documentation and resource tracking, with manpower totaling over 300,000 hours.

Ducci Scope of Work: Coordinated all drawing revisions, PC-CKS changes and updates, weekly commodity tracking, material certifications, schedule updates, and management of Ducci subcontractors including Instrumentation, Isophase, Lightning Protection, Fire Alarm, Controls and Heat Tracing. Rebuilt both combustion turbines and steam turbine on site (under Siemens' direction) due to improper curing of outer winding resins during the manufacturing process. Worked collaboratively with Siemens to dismantle the turbines and reheat the resins on the coils to attain proper curing before reassembling them on site. Supported commissioning and testing companies for all system startups and testing, and the mechanical contractors for heat stress.

UBS DATA CENTER – PROJECT BLUESTONE

G.C. – Turner Construction Company
Architect – Corgan Associates Architects, PC
Engineer – EYP Mission Critical Facilities Inc.

UBS DATA CENTER – PROJECT BLUESTONE

Year Completed:  2009

Contract Amount  $30,610,000

Size:  248,000 sq. ft.

Challenges Faced: Fast track schedule, complicated installation of underground and overhead feeders, difficult deliveries and installations due to lack of onsite storage, problematic installation in basement due to the only access being through a freight elevator shaft.

Ducci Scope of Work: Bluestone is a Tier 3+ data center with two separate data halls. The building was fed with two dedicated 13.8KV utility feeders, and five 13.8KV generators were currently installed. Each generator could be selected by one of the two parallel switchgear lineups. Two main 13.8KV distribution switchgear lineups distributed utility and generator power to UPS and mechanical 13.8KV to 480V substations arranged in a M-T-T-M configuration. Four parallel redundant UPS fed PDUs and RPPs in each data hall. Ducci installed 13.8KV generators, main 13.8KV distribution switchgear, generator parallel switchgear and control switchboard, 480V double end substations, 480V MCCs, UPS and associated batteries, PDUs and RPPs and associated 13.8KV feeders, 480 feeders, DC feeders, VESDA, SCADA, as well as electrical power monitoring, fire alarm, and battery monitoring systems.

MDC SUBSTATION UPGRADES

Year Completed:  2004

Contract Amount:  $2,822,000

Project Features: MDC Substation is a water treatment facility serving East Hartford, Hartford, Newington, Rocky Hill, West Hartford, and Wethersfield, CT.

The 3,000 acre site includes 5 small reservoirs, 22 underground sand filtering beds (some as large as football fields), and 30 miles of public trails.

Challenges Faced: Maintaining the existing 50+ year old overhead systems while integrating the new electrical system throughout this expansive facility. Completing work without interruption to the daily operation (and public enjoyment) of the facility.

Ducci Scope of Work: Installed normal and emergency electric system for entire facility. Removed and relocated all overhead utilities underground. Provided and installed 2 self-contained, housed generators, new switchgear and alarm cabinets. Retrofit existing electric and alarm cabinets unable to be removed or disturbed. Replaced and transferred existing overhead systems connecting all of the remote buildings with new underground conduit duct bank system.
