155 North Wacker Drive – Electric Duct Run

The John Buck Company developed this 46-story, 1.1-million-square-foot high rise located on Wacker Drive in Chicago. This high-rise building is being served by eight 12kV feeders that enter the building utilizing a new 18-conduit duct package that extends from a manhole on Lower Wacker Drive to the mainline vault in the basement of the building.

Primera provided the electrical engineering and the civil engineering for the development including the design for routing new cable for existing and new feeders through existing utility manholes, designing four conduit runs, three six-conduit ductbanks going between two manholes and one 18-conduit ductbank going from a manhole to the buildings mainline vault, and the design of the 12kV high rise distribution system. Primera coordinated with the Office of Underground Coordination and Illinois Department of Transportation to determine the best route for the conduit runs.
