SEPTA Substation Rehabilitation Project

Arora is providing mechanical/plumbing, fire/life safety, special systems, and electrical services for the substation rehabilitation of 16 substations and facilities. The overall objective of the project is to provide SEPTA with upgraded substations throughout the Regional Rail (RRD) and Center City Transit (CCT) divisions of SEPTA.

Phase 1 of this project is site assessments of all systems and preparation of a conceptual report for each station detailing the condition of and recommendations for each individual system. Phase 2 consists of design packages for recommended upgrades. Phase 3 consists of construction related services to review submittals and shop drawings, respond to RFIs, as-built/record documentation, and as needed technical assistance.

The mechanical services include design for the HVAC, ventilation, and exhaust systems in the buildings. The plumbing services include design for the bathrooms, the eyewash stations and the rainwater conductor systems for each of the buildings. The fire/life safety design includes fire alarm and detection systems for each building. Heat and smoke detection systems are required throughout and will communicate to SEPTA’s operations center. The special systems design includes security, CCTV, and communications for each of the buildings. The electrical design is related to the non-TPSS systems and includes general convenience power, receptacles, and lighting.
