Newark Campus Infrastructure, The Ohio State University
Monks Engineers (a Tec Inc. company) provided electrical engineering services for this two-pronged renovation project to the Ohio State University’s Newark Campus infrastructure. The initial task was to retrofit approximately 200 existing exterior campus lighting fixtures to LED lighting. The second task involved the design and installation of emergency generators for four buildings on campus. This project provided individual natural gas emergency generators for Hopewell Hall, Reese Center, and LeFevre Hall, which did not have emergency backup generators. The design for the emergency generators required reconfiguring the building’s electrical distribution to separate emergency circuits, appropriate sizing of associated electrical components, and design of the outdoor associated equipment pad with visual screening that would blend architecturally with the existing structure.
