Miami University Oxford Ohio has been systematically upgrading its campus facilities in a multiyear plan with a goal to set itself apart from other Universities of its type in the country. Included in this improvement plan are the rehabilitation of existing dormitories and the construction of several new dormitories. These improvements will reduce the number of beds per room, air condition all buildings, upgrade the interior finishes, and incorporate green construction and energy efficient methods of building management.
Lake Erie Electric-Dayton Division has been participating in this effort for a number of years by receiving contracts for new construction and remodel of existing dormitories. Along with the dormitory building improvements, Lake Erie has also become the preferred site electrical distribution contractor. This work includes upgrading the transformers, high voltage switches, and substations to systematically convert the entire campus from a 5kV to a 15kV distribution system. Along with this effort, the campus emergency generators have been upgraded, and the site lighting converted to LED.
Lake Erie Electric has successfully delivered: Etheridge Hall, McFarland Hall, Anderson Hall, Western Campus Site, East Quad Site, Central Campus Site, Art Quad Site, and Cook Field Site. The Dayton Division is currently working on completion of Hahne Hall and the North Quad Site while looking forward to the next phase of the overall campus projects.
