Harold Washington Library is a multifaceted project consisting of the following:

Creation of a new interior Diesel Generator Room within the loading dock area to house an 800 KW 480 V standby generator with a 550 gallon capacity day tank. The diesel generator is connected to a new switchboard and distribution panel with electrical feeds to a new fire pump control panel and automatic transfer switches to provide power to the eleven floor library consisting of approximately 972,000 SF including the rooftop garden penthouse. Flue and vent lines are piped to the building exterior partially enclosed to the third floor elevation.
