J&M Electrical installs Advanced Building Automation System at New Balance World Headquarters
Brighton, MA – Fellow NECA contractor, J. M. Electrical Company of Lynnfield, MA, is currently providing building automation system installations both for core and shell electrical construction and tenant fit-out at the New Balance world headquarters facility. The contractors HVAC automation control systems for the five-story building and electrical penthouse will also tie into the life safety CO system in the facility’s parking garage.
In the raised floor system facility, all air distribution and mechanical systems are located under the floors, requiring JM Electrical’s crew to have control system tie-ins for all mechanical systems online and then tested in dry runs prior to installation of each floor. The head end of the sophisticated building automation control system, located on the first floor of the facility, will provide complete web access control of the facility’s heating and cooling for the property’s facility management.
Close coordination between the JM Electrical and State Electric teams are critically important to the project, as the NECA contractor’s team approach is ensuring that detailed project requirements and timelines are met.
J.M Electrical mobilized in July 2014 and the project is targeting completion in August, when New Balance is scheduled to take occupancy. Project manager Niall Black and foreman Patrick O’Brien are supervising a crew of eight IBEW Local 103 electricians at peak construction.
