Student Union Addition

Bismarck, ND

Electrical Design for Renovation

The existing Bismarck State College Student Union is a two story facility with approximately 35,000 square feet. It is the hub of campus life for students and faculty, housing a full service dining center, book store, classrooms, and meeting rooms. The existing union was previously updated in the late 90's.

Project Details

This project will renovate more than half of the existing space and will create additional classrooms and support areas, an expanded book store, and additional meeting room space with new multi-media and video conferencing capabilities. The addition will also increase the dining center space and improve circulation throughout the building.

With construction happening on top of the existing electrical service and the existing service entrance lacking capacity to handle the additional electrical load, temporary electrical service will be installed, keeping the existing building operational during the construction of the addition. New electrical service will be installed within the addition, and after completion the old electrical service will be back fed and the temporary service removed.

The project is currently in the design phase which is scheduled for bid in Spring 2012.
