York Substation - The York Substation was designed to be built in the existing Con Edison 74th St Power Generating Station. The vacated space of the retired Frequency Changers and Turbo Generator Units will house the new substation.

The new 138kV– 13.8kV York Substation was designed to include four (4) transformer bank vaults, a Superconductor Cryogenics vault, Switchgear and Capacitor Banks. Design Alterations included four new floors. This station included: an Oil Water Separator, a Control Room, an Electrical Closet, a security room, (2) HV Test Rooms, a Computer Room, Storage, a Fire Pump/Water Meter, Testing, (2) Communication, Bathrooms with lockers, a Break Room, and (2) Battery Rooms with associated rectifier rooms.

The building design was based on the New York City Building Code and local codes and standards.

  1. Architectural design included building, floor and roof plans, building elevations and sections, wall sections, schedules and construction details. Enlarged plans sections were prepared for areas requiring greater detail such as the toilets and stairs. Schedules and installation details were also prepared for doors including roll-up doors, windows, roofing details and louvers. During the initial phase of the project, a Code and Zoning review was completed to assure all requirements for building construction type, egress and safety were met.
  2. Civil design included utility connections for potable water and sanitary systems, site layouts and construction details. Transformer vault drain system and floor drains for bathroom, break rooms, etc were designed. All transformer vault drainage was designed to be processed through an oil water separator.
  3. Structural design of the new substation (beams, hoist beams, rigging beams, columns, slabs, stairs, and roof deck) were designed to be composite steel framing system above EL 16’-6” with cast in place concrete construction below EL 16’-6”. The new substation was designed to be an independent structure from the existing 74th St. Building.
