Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Early understanding of local code requirements for the transformer and switchgear pads is important as this could impact the release of prefabricated duct banks.  If the equipment pad sizes and locations are not correctly identified this could cause rework of prefabricated material.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

Coordinate early with the local utility company and design team in order to correctly identify the transformer and switchgear pad requirements and location.
