Summary Utility infrastructure masterplan 

Conceptual Design Report (CDR) and Site Utility Master Plan for the Critical Utility Infrastructure Revitalization (CUIR) Project.

Prepare a site utility master plan to provide a complete Conceptual Design Report (CDR) per DOE order 413.3B for SLAC’s use in our DOE reviews and Request for Proposal for a Design-Build team to complete the design and construction of this entire project. The primary objective of the Critical Utility Infrastructure Revitalization (CUIR) project is to reduce risks and close the capability gaps identified in our infrastructure condition assessments, studies and surveys as they relate to SLAC’s stormwater, sanitary sewer, domestic water/fire protection, electrical, and various cooling water systems.

The following key capability gaps through the completion of a site utility master plan need to be addressed to achieve this multi-program effort:

Underground domestic water/fire protection, sanitary sewer, and stormwater drain systems site-wide have degraded severely in corrosive soils. The existence of inoperable valves and have frequent breakage due to root intrusion and earth movement over time.

Electrical disturbances caused by voltage sags, transients, and faults have frequently impacted science site wide and caused unscheduled accelerator down time. Electrical systems with non-operable or unsafe electrical components require a broader outage to respond and repair, which impact ongoing science and the greater SLAC population. Work-around and administrative controls placed around equipment and systems which are underrated, not operating as intended, nor designed/operational for today’s science needs create tremendous inefficiencies, safety concerns, and sub-optimize operations.

Cooling tower water interruptions and utility piping breaks have frequently impacted science along the linac. Existing cooling towers and piping system configurations are inefficient, and lack reliability and maintainability due to insufficient mechanical controls and minimal redundancy.
E&A firm will conduct a risk based prioritization of utility systems projects with SLAC Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and provide base scope with potential bid options that will be reviewed by SLAC. E&A team is responsible for site reviews and guidance to SLAC on final project scope selection.
