First, thank you very much in advance for any input/feedback.
This is for a self managed commercial tenant finish project. (not a franchise)
We (the GC and owner of the business requiring service) have a project where we are trying to get a ball park budget for addressing power requirements. We will be leasing and conducting a Tenant Finish space in Denver, where our requirements include the need for 3-phase power installed to support the following:
Quantity= 6 machines with the following power requirements:
Standard 208/230-60-3 (Each unit require two dedicated electrical connections)
Fuze Size: 25 Amps Left, 20 Amp Right
Minimum Wire Ampacity: 19A Left, 16A Right
- In addition to the 6 units above, we will also install a 5 or 7 Ton HVAC system (model TBD
- 1 3-door Freezer (model TBD
- 1 3-door Refrigerator (model TBD
- Plus standard lighting and appliances for a 1,300 sq ft space.
We understand that we will need to pay for an electrical engineer to fully spec this out, get approved/stamped drawings and utilized a licensed electrician to complete the work; but we are in the budgeting phase and lease review. We have had people who have said everything from $4K to $80K, which makes it impossible to make an educated business decision. We only need an understanding at this stage of:
1) 1) Based on the above equipment, approximately how much 3-phase power would we need installed at the panel (200, 300, 400 amps?)?
2) 2) Can we just install the 3 phase panel for all service or will we need to install a separate single phase panel?
3) 3) What budget range will we be looking at to bring in the power from the pole and install the panel (or panels) for power (no wiring or HVAC installation; just the primary panel upgrade/installation)? (More info on the location: On one side of the unit there is an adjoining unit that currently has 3-phase power for a bakery, so it is available. On the other side of our unit is an ally and the pole supplying the power. The pole is about 30 feet from where we would want the panel)
Please let me know if there are any other details required to help reply.
