A REVITALIZED TOWN CENTER WITH NATURAL GAS

A REVITALIZED TOWN CENTER WITH NATURAL GAS

Customer Story: Springfield Town Center

Commercial

Location:Springfield, VA

 

Located in Springfield, Virginia, the revitalized Springfield Town Center brings new retail stores, restaurants and bars, office space, a movie theater and health club to the area. The 1.3-million-square-foot center will have an annual load of 424,160 therms.

 

Challenge

The existing natural gas main was only 4˝ and could not support the entire new load of the redeveloped Springfield Town Center. To allow the existing stores to remain open while work was performed required extensive coordination among the underground contractor, meter contractor, utility coordinators and builders.

 

Solution

This massive project was coordinated at multiple phases to provide natural gas to all new customers at no cost. To avoid delaying the town center’s construction timetable, the project was approached in multiple phases. The phases included abandoning the gas lines that were no longer needed, installing over 1,000 feet of approach main, installing eight new services and fabricating, replacing and installing meters for 14 new retail stores.

 

Results

By accommodating current retail customers and working to meet the new customers’ time requirements at no cost, Washington Gas was able to provide natural gas to a large retail and entertainment center in Fairfax County.

 

Testimonial 

"Revitalizing Springfield Town Center meant bringing new energy and life to the area. For our energy, we wanted natural gas. Washington Gas brought natural gas to the Town Center while keeping the current stores open for business. We’re happy we chose Washington Gas for our energy needs."

- Gerry Marshall, Associate/Project Manager of Borowski & Associates, LLC.
