Perimeter Institute is a leading centre for scientific research, training and educational outreach in foundational theoretical physics. Roberts Onsite was contracted to perform all of the electrical work for a 50,000 square foot, five storey addition. This addition consisted of offices, classrooms, lecture halls, lounges, a cafeteria and a restaurant. We installed new power distribution, convenience power devices, fire alarm, security conduits, lighting controls, AV, exterior and interior lighting and network cable tray systems. This project had many challenges in addition to being an occupied building, the architecture of the building produced odd shaped rooms, walls and an atrium that is five stories high which limited access across the floors. Specific precautions had to be taken to install the lighting and devices in a safe manner. Platform lifts and engineered scaffolding were used in addition to full body harnesses. To compliment the interesting architecture, specific lighting was used throughout. LED lighting was also used in many areas both inside and out. Robert Onsite’s life safety group conducted fault current and Arc Flash studies due to the increase in power needed for the addition. This project was completed on time and schedule, and without incident.
