Success Stories

U.S. Coast Guard – JF Williams Building

JM Electrical was tasked with upgrading the control system in this high security building.  This meant converting the existing pneumatic controls to DDC controls.  Despite the difficult access in the building, JM Electrical was able to complete this project on schedule.

Brigham & Women’s Hospital

JM Electrical updated and replaced the electrical equipment in Brigham & Women’s Hospital to ensure that all lighting improved the hospital’s energy performance and increased electrical efficiency. JM Electrical replaced the lighting equipment in the building to ensure that it would work 24/7 while reducing the hospital’s overall power consumption. This upgrade allowed Brigham & Women’s to enjoy fast paybacks on electrical bills while at the same time enhancing the lighting quality.

VA Hospital Building

Updated building systems are necessary in order to maintain a high quality of living, working and research space that hospitals are required to provide for both doctors and patients. JM Electrical was chosen to work on the Veteran’s Affairs hospital buildings in West Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, and Bedford to ensure this type of high-quality environment. The team continues to upgrade the current control systems with direct digital controls (DDC) to create a more centralized network of control systems that ultimately increase a building’s energy efficiency.
