IDCS is a skilled Electrical Design firm accomplished in all aspects of electrical distribution/utilization for medium voltage to low voltage lighting and Class II and III signal systems. IDCS can provide standby systems with generation (natural gas, LP, or diesel), UPS systems, automatic transfer switches and other secondary sources. IDCS has designed green power sources, including photovoltaic cells and biogas fueled turbines, micro turbines, and reciprocating engine-generators. IDCS also has extensive experience in interacting with local utilities code officials.
IDCS was selected by AECOM to assist in the electrical and control design of an effluent water pump station for the MWRDGC Stickney WRP. The pump station was to supplement the supply of treated effluent that was reused for non-potable water applications throughout the plant.
The DC-02 & DC-03 diversion structure (also known as the Pendleton diversion structure) was designed to divert flow from the trunk sewer to the Deer Creek Sanitary Tunnel during storm events.
The Deer Creek Sanitary Tunnel is designed to store peak flows from the existing collection system that exceed the capacity of the existing trunk sewers or the capacity of the downstream treatment plant.
The Digester Gas Utilization Facilities, at the Calumet Water Reclamation Plant (CWRP) will enable the District to treat biogas generated from their current digestion process along with future digestion of a high-strength organic waste stream (currently under design by the District). The digester gas from these two sources will be treated at the CWRP to a level of quality acceptable for injection into a natural gas pipeline, through the new High BTU plant.
IDCS involvement at Wilmette Pump Station consisted of the complete demolition and design of a new incoming utility service to replace the existing service which had passed its useful life expectancy, replacement of 1966 era substation transformers and their associated primary circuit breakers, replacement of the lighting system within the building as well as on the exterior, new controls of the gate structures (including lighting above the new gate control bridge), design of an annunciator for communication with the public during gate operations, a new control system, with communication and control from both the Main Waterways Control Center and North Side Water reclamation plant.
The Central Park Pumping Station Electrification project is to convert a steam-powered pumping station to electrically driven pumps, and rehabilitate and upgrade the electrical services to the pump station.
Intelligent Design and Construction Solutions, LLC completed the design for the instrumentation and control of the revised disinfection systems at the Lemay Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The Jefferson Barracks Tunnel will be responsible for conveying sewage to the Lemay Water Treatment Plant (Lemay WTP) as well as storing potential combined sewer overflow (CSO) and storm sewer overflow (SSO) during a wet weather event.
For the St. Louis City Parks project, IDCS designed electrical upgrades at the historic Carondelet Park Boathouse and the Beckett Park comfort station.
IDCS was contracted to perform Electrical Engineering Services for the Condition Assessment of the South Water Purification Plant
IDCS was contracted to work on six operable IDOT bridges over the Des Plaines River in Joliet, IL. Each of the six bridges is subject to both automobile and pedestrian traffic, while the thoroughfare below is subject to varying levels of maritime traffic, both commercial and private in nature (e.g. freight barges and sailboats).
Tyndall AFB Medical Center is a 50,000 square foot building contained over 70 distribution panels in various stages of life, as well as 30 transformers. The scope of this project was to update and eliminate panels and transformers where possible and create a new efficient electrical distribution system.
IDCS was retained by KJWW to provide the electrical design for the replacement of two electric chillers at the Cummins Life Science Center on the University of Chicago Campus. The work included new 4160V feeds, and starters for the 1,020-ton chillers.
IDCS was contracted to participate in the East Cooling Tower Replacement project at the Chicago O'Hare International Airport. The East Cooling Tower is responsible for providing cooling to the Terminal Building at O'Hare International Airport.
O'Hare International Airport serves over 150,000 passengers on a daily basis. The Heating and Refrigeration (H&R) Building is responsible for heating and cooling all of the airport buildings.
IDCS will be responsible for the preliminary and detailed design of certain components of the Des Plaines Inflow Tunnel.
IDCS completed the Electrical and Instrumentation design for a new wastewater treatment facility for the treatment of contaminated groundwater, as well as the associated new Administration and Maintenance Buildings.
IDCS was selected to participate as a sub-consultant to CH2M Hill for the Lemont Water Reclamation Plant Wet Weather Treatment Facility (WWTF) upgrades project. This is a multi-phased project which includes the installation of a 5MG wet weather reservoir for storage of the initial excess flow, and the installation of a wet weather treatment facility which provides primary treatment and disinfection for flows above treatment and storage capacity.
IDCS was a sub-consultant to Black & Veatch for the Lemay Water Treatment Plant (WTP) Secondary Improvements Project. This project includes the design of process improvements to increase the secondary treatment capacity from 167MGD to 210MGD, in order to meet new consent decree requirements.
The Consent Decree requires increasing influent pumping capacity to the Lemay WWTP to 340mgd by December 31, 2015. The District's preferred alternative for providing additional pumping capacity is to design a second (redundant) force main from Lemay Pump Station No. 1 to the Lemay WWTP.
