Massachusetts automation systems experts complete advanced control system and retrofit for project at Boston Landing
BRIGHTON – July 26, 2016 – JM Electrical Company, Inc., Greater Boston’s leader in advanced automated building system installations, today announced that it has completed project operations at Warrior Ice Arena, the Boston Bruins practice facility at the Boston Landing development in Brighton. The project is the latest in a string of prominent jobs complete by JM, including the 85,000 square foot Hanscom Air Force Base Middle School and the 333,500 square foot PricewaterhouseCoopers building in the Seaport.
“As our company grows, the projects are becoming more complex and our success with those jobs is fueling additional growth,” said John Guarracino, Project Manager of JM Electrical.
The company installed power and control wiring for the ice rink’s refrigeration system and pre-packed mechanical rooms. In addition, JM wired the leak detection system, added sensors associated with the ice battery tank, and installed cooling towers, dehumidification units and associated Air Handling Units.
“There were many components associated with the ice rink system in the arena,” said Jay Rourke, Project Manager at NB Development Group and General Manager of Warrior Ice Arena. “It was a pleasure working with JM, as the company’s staff is so skilled and experienced in the field.”
Work at the arena site began in December, 2014 and JM began installations in January of this year. It is adjacent to a 10-story office building, part of a 15-acre Boston Landing project.
The arena seats 660 fans, keeping with the intimate experience for those who will attend events there. It is solely dedicated to hockey. “We are thrilled to have had the pleasure of taking on the installation of this,” added Guarracino. “We are big Boston sports fans at JM, and couldn’t be happier to contribute to operations at the state-of-the-art practice rink for our own Boston Bruins.”
JM Electrical has more than 30 years of experience and expertise in the installation of advanced automated building systems, which have been the foundation of the business. In addition to PricewaterhouseCoopers and Hanscom Middle School, the company has completed other large-scale automation system installations in the Greater Boston Area recently, including those done at the Museum of Science, as well as a solar photovoltaic energy system installation at Massachusetts General Hospital.
