Project Description

DISTRICT STEAM SYSTEM

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) relies on steam energy to provide high quality and affordable utility services across the UAB Campus, Hospital and research facilities. In order to sustain the continued growth and comfort of the University community, the need to secure a highly reliable, efficient, and readily expandable steam distribution and condensate recovery system to replace the obsolete supply piping became apparent. The new distribution system will be routed from the Central Steam Plant to the various buildings on Campus along street segments, sidewalks and pedestrian areas.

Dynamic Civil Solutions was retained as the Owner’s representative for Transportation and Traffic Control related issues for the development of the UAB District Steam System Program. The scope of services provided included an assessment of the project’s impact to campus transportation services (vehicular, pedestrian, handicap accessible, emergency and public transit routes), traffic control plan design reviews submitted by the Contractor and regular construction traffic control review and compliance.
