The Cleveland Clinic Ring Bus Project – located on the main campus of the Cleveland Clinic – spanned from E. 86th Street to E. 105th Street and from Chester Avenue to Cedar Avenue. The Great Lakes’ team replaced the antiquated electrical infrastructure of the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus to help prevent future blackouts. The project allowed for future growth as the Cleveland Clinic continues to expand.
Work items include the installation of 21,000 LF of ductbank, placement of eighty manholes, (2) 195 LF 60” bores, (4) 150 LF 42” bores, and restoring pavements, walkways and landscaping throughout the campus. Great Lakes was responsible for trench excavation and the installation of trench shielding and shoring in order for our partner, Lake Erie Electric, Inc. to install the electrical ductbanks. Upon installation of the ductbank, Great Lakes placed concrete for the ductbank encasement, backfilled, then restored it back to the original condition. Ductbank sizes ranged from 4’ wide x 1’ tall to 11’ wide by 6’ tall and from 5’ deep up to 20’ deep.
