The Ogden-Weber Applied Technology College (OWATC) houses all college health care programs including Dental Assisting, Dental Office Administration, Medical Assisting, Medical Office Administration, Medical Transcription, Medical Coder, Practical Nursing, Nursing Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, and a cohort of Weber State University’s Registered Nursing program to serve OWATC graduates. This state-of-the-art facility enabled the college to double its capacity for training and job placement by serving up to 1,200 health care students annually.
A large portion of the project involved an upgrade of the existing medium voltage distribution system which included research of existing loads with Rocky Mountain Power in relation to their capacity to serve the campus, voltage drop calculations of the new 900 foot long extension and field verifying conditions of existing switchgear with which the extension connected. A new medium voltage pad mounted switch was specified accommodate future campus growth. All new underground duct banks were installed as concrete encased duct banks with the routing verified in the field to avoid conflicts with other utilities.
