UD Whitney Athletic Center

This multi-purpose building for student athletes was a 125,000-square-foot renovation to the existing stands and press box, as well as an entire overhaul of the space to include student study areas, strength and conditioning gym, training room, physical therapy spaces, upgraded concessions, offices, coaches’ booths, VIP seating, and more. Nickle’s scope of work included new primary service to the new pad mount primary switch, then primary service from the pad mount switch to the pad mount transformer, and new feeders from the pad mount transformer to a new 4,000-amp switchboard. Electricians replaced the existing generator with a new 750-kVA generator to feed a new 800-amp distribution board and 400-amp existing feeder. New distribution, power, lighting, security, tele/data raceways, lighting controls, and two new Musco field lights were also included in the scope.
