JM Electrical and Navitas Complete Project at Serenity Apartments
JM Electrical Company, Inc. has completed project operations at Longwood Development’s Serenity Apartments, a 16-story, 195-residence apartment complex on South Huntington Avenue in Jamaica Plain.
Working with Navitas System Integration (NSI), the companies installed standalone controls in the residential units and direct digital controls in common areas, maximizing efficiency.
JM also installed the control wiring for the critical fuel oil delivery system for the standby generator as well as the CO monitoring system in the 100-car parking garage, crucial to life safety in the event of elevated CO emissions.
Designed by Prellwitz Chilinski Associates, Inc., the mixed-use building contains 2,100sf of retail space in addition to the residences, which range from one to three bedrooms. Twenty-four of the apartments will overlook Olmsted Park. Amenities in the development include a swimming pool, fitness center, and green roof deck.
The residences will have water-flow efficient kitchens and bathrooms, as well as efficient windows and appliances. Additionally, the development is nearby multiple modes of transportation. It will also feature car charging stations, bicycle storage, and 106 parking spaces.
“Longwood Group’s dedication to sustainability certainly shows in this development, and we were happy to be on the project,” said Niall Black, project manager at JM Electrical. “Serenity is a LEED certified building with many sustainable characteristics, including the automatic and standalone controls installed by JM and Navitas, which will ensure the building’s energy efficiency and keep operating costs down.”
Tony Rosa, JM Electrical foreman on the job, oversaw a team of three electricians over the course of the six month project to ensure it was completed on time and on budget.
