Industrial Renovation for the USPS

Bergelectric joined forces with general contractor Swinerton Builders on the Phase I renovation of the Los Angeles Central Mail Processing and Distribution Facility.

As part of the multi-million dollar renovation, Bergelectric crews removed and replaced an existing 5kV electrical substation and hi-bay lighting for the warehouse upgrade. In addition, Berg installed another 5kV substation, along with 750 feet of new 400-amp and 600-amp overhead busway and florescent lighting for the renovated workroom and new sack city mail-sorting equipment.

Berg’s preconstruction expertise was critical to the project, as the initial bid drawings were only 30% completed. According to Preconstruction Manager Scott Dater, “we worked closely with the USPS design team led by Parsons, who served as both the architect and electrical engineer. We adjusted our proposal accordingly at 60%, 70% and 100% intervals. To accommodate the fast-track schedule, we worked with Parson’s engineers to order the switchgear before the shop-drawings submittals were completed.”
