UMass Boston Utility Corridor & Roadway Relocation

Project Details

A Visionary Utility and Roadway Upgrade

The utility corridor project was built to support future buildings while providing reliable utility service to the entire campus.

Fischbach & Moore was responsible for a multitude of components:

  • Implementation of new roadway and walkway systems to accommodate a redesigned traffic pattern enveloping the campus perimeter
  • Installation of new raceway systems, encompassing over 220,000 feet of exterior PVC encased in concrete and more than 110,000 feet of conduit within campus buildings
  • Establishment of two 15 KV loops encircling the campus to provide redundant utility feeders to nine existing campus buildings, bolstering reliability
  • Integration of Vista switches for seamless transition between feeder loops, ensuring uninterrupted utility supply
  • The roadway and walkway relocation phase entailed the installation of new underground raceway systems, supporting approximately 200 new streetlights, over 100 pedestrian walkway lights, and 20 emergency call boxes
  • Introduction of a new fire alarm campus loop and security loop, enhancing security measures campus-wide

This project showcases solutions that allow for future growth while empowering the current campus community with enhanced utility services and upgraded roadway systems.
