TA-46-154 HVAC Upgrade

Los Alamos National LaboratoryClient: Los Alamos National Laboratory

Location: Los Alamos, NM

Lopez Engineering, Inc. (LEI) provided engineering services to upgrade Title II for TA-46-154 HVAC Upgrades for Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).  LEI provided electrical engineering design services to modify and/or upgrade the existing electric systems to support any new HVAC system requirements.

Based on the walk-down of the building, LEI developed a building single line diagram for approximately ten (10) building distribution panel boards and two (2) separate utility feeds.  The building single line diagram was modeled into the SKM software.  The model was used as the basis of design for the HVAC system modifications, for the following calculations: Voltage drop, fault current, load and demand flow, and arc flash calculations for each piece of equipment or bus in the system. The model was also utilized to provide panel schedules in dxf format. Panel schedules were provided in Construction Drawings; developed in AutoCAD. At the 100% submittal, LEI provided the existing and renovated building low voltage distribution system model.

LEI conducted Field Work, delivered Design Basis and Electrical Load Analysis documents, Electrical Demolition, I&C, and Electrical drawings and above mentioned calculations, attended meetings.
