Huntsville, Alabama

613 SF to 45,000 SF

SSOE provided comprehensive electrical engineering consulting and design services to GE Intelligent Platforms, a business unit of GE Energy Management. Over the course of a year, SSOE addressed electrical needs for an existing 45,000 SF building and a new 20,000 SF addition to GE’s Huntsville, Alabama, campus.

A key location for GE Intelligent Platforms, the Huntsville campus manufactures an array of high-technology products serving defense and aerospace, medical, semiconductor, industrial, and communications customers.

In the first phase of this project, SSOE performed a detailed site survey to determine costs for construction of the addition and evaluated the existing building for compliance with current codes. SSOE then conducted feasibility and code studies and provided electrical system design criteria and alternatives.

Once the design was finalized, SSOE provided construction administration services for the electrical portion of the project, including shop drawings and submittal review. SSOE also helped the client update electrical plans for the 613 SF Shaker and Control Room and relocate the thermal chambers in the manufacturing area.

Additional work included power and circuiting for the 940 SF single-story storage area addition, modifications to exterior site lighting (metal halide fixtures changed to LED fixtures), and electrical design for revisions to a 10,000 SF second floor in the building.

During the course of the project, the Owner presented a number of revised requirements that demanded quick design modifications. SSOE rapidly incorporated all changes and successfully met an expedited timeline associated with the relocation of GE’s Albuquerque, New Mexico plant operations to Huntsville.

After successful project completion, GE sought SSOE’s assistance in sourcing support during an emergency equipment failure.
