Rochester Institute of Technology’s College of Applied Science and Technology Building is the campus’s first green certified structure. At $10.6 million the contemporary 43,000 square foot facility was designed to meet LEED standards (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). CAST was awarded Gold Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
O’Connell subcontracted from Wellivere McGuire, Inc. to provide $1.7 million of electrical construction and communications work for the state-of-the-art CAST building. Included were 15 kV service, primary and secondary power, a structured cabling system with fiber optic backbone for all building communications (voice, data, and video), TEGG certified reliability testing of all systems, and roof mounted photo voltaic solar modules for educational purposes. All work was successfully performed under a tight schedule to meet faculty and student occupancy requirements.
