Project Summary

The fast-track Newby Island Resource Recovery Park (NIRRP) industrial tenant improvement project involved one of the world’s most advanced recycling facilities. The NIRPP Recyclery is capable of sorting the most material per hour accurately to recover a high percentage of recyclables. The NIRRP project involved renovating two sorting facility buildings and one office in Milpitas, California. Cupertino Electric (CEI) began construction work on the bulk-handling facility and systems in April of 2012 to meet the July 16, 2012 operation deadline. CEI's scope of work involved installing a 21-kV substation, two 2500-kVA transformers and a 4000A main switchboard. The project also included re-feeding an existing 1500A switchboard and engineering and designing fit-up lights and a fire alarm system.
