SITUATION:

BOND was selected by UCONN to provide construction management at risk services for the Northwest Science Quad Supplemental Utility Plant (SUP), which is a multiphase project. The new plant will integrate the University’s current infrastructure distribution and control network to provide flexibility in meeting campus loads. The SUP will increase the University’s capacity for chilled water, steam and on-site electrical generation. It’s designed to reflect and accommodate current and future utility demands. Phase one’s scope of work includes a steel frame insulated panel wall system structure, switchgear and ancillary equipment, fuel oil storage, duct banks and blacktop parking. Phase two’s scope of work will complete the SUP build out planned for the 100 kpph packaged boiler and two 8MW CHP installations.
