Honoring America’s Veterans with quality health care services, the Northport Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center is part of the largest integrated health care system in the nation. VHA additionally provides training for a majority of America’s medical, nursing, and allied health professionals.

The Northport VA Medical Center, in particular, serves veterans from the Nassau and Suffolk Counties of Long Island and the surrounding 5 boroughs of New York. Northport is a 502-bed teaching hospital that serves about 18,000 patients per year. Doctors there perform 633 inpatient and 1,822 outpatient surgeries a year. The 100-acre campus supports over 65 buildings.

SETTY is providing project management and professional design services to replace the primary electrical distribution system for the entire Northport VA Medical Center Campus.

The Project includes the design and construction of a new main sub-station near the existing main sub-station to house the new primary service switchgear. The Setty team will also design and oversee the extension of a new concrete encased duct bank from the new switchgear to the existing switchgear, as well as at two other switchgear located elsewhere on campus.

Scope of Services Include:

  • Project Management and coordination of the design efforts of the site development, architectural, structural, HVAC, electrical, critical path method, and cost estimating disciplines

  • Coordinating incoming service related work with the local utility companies

  • Review of Arc Flash Studies

  • Comprehensive survey of the existing fire protection system capacities and its reconfiguration in the specified area of interest

  • Determining the construction schedule and phasing of the project
