Project Scope

Excellence was contracted to provide Design/Build Services for aircraft hangar electrical upgrades and aircraft battery charger room upgrades at Cannon AFB, New Mexico.  The upgraded battery charging room required the design and installation of a non-load bearing wall and door, upgrade of the electrical system, lighting, fire protection and notification system, dedicated HVAC and fume removal system and personnel safety shower.  The electrical upgrade for the hangers required adding new distribution transformers and panelboards to feed new 20A & 30A, 250V power receptacles located in the hangar bays.
