Cerrudo Services served as design build contractor for repair work to the galley and adjacent electrical room for Station Humboldt Bay. A new grease interceptor and related piping, valves and vents were installed. Electrical work included rerouting and fastening of existing exposed electrical cords and cables, relocating the existing boathouse disconnect, replacing existing junction boxes with new, installing new receptacles and light switches, providing arc flash warning signs and smoke alarms. The tile floor in the galley was cleaned, sealed, waxed and buffed. The walls and ceiling were insulated and patched after lead paint remediation. All wall and ceiling surfaces in the galley and electrical room were painted.
The work was scheduled to minimize interference with the facilities’ normal operation. The shutdown of the galley was limited to 12 days, and the galley was returned to normal operation within the time frame. All utility shutdowns were pre-scheduled including electrical and alarm systems, communication systems and plumbing. Backup electrical power was provided, with a constant voltage generator to maintain continuous electrical power at the Station whenever an electrical shutdown exceeded two hours.
