Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric) has recently completed the electrical installation work at Dassault Systèmes in Waltham, Mass. The 3D product design software company took residence at 175 Wyman Street, where Griffin Electric had originally completed the core electrical installation work in early 2010.
Recent electrical work within the company’s 7,500-sq-ft data center included the installation of power, lighting, and a fire alarm system. A new 13.8kV primary distribution, in addition to a 1000kVA pad-mounted transformer, and 2000A, 480V service was also part of Griffin’s electrical contract, plus two new 750kW generators, paralleling switchgear, and a UPS backup system.
Additionally, as part of the 212,000-sq-ft tenant fit-up package, Griffin Electric installed extensive lighting and controls, as well as, power and fire alarm systems. Construction management firm Columbia Construction Co.,North Reading, Mass., led both portions of the project to completion, with architect and electrical engineer SMMA, Cambridge, Mass., responsible for the data center. Elkus Manfredi Architects, Boston, and AHA Consulting Engineers, Lexington, Mass., were contracted for the tenant fit-up project.
“With prior experience wiring this building, our team already knew the inner workings of the facility’s electrical system,” relayed Wayne J. Griffin, president of Griffin Electric. “Our previous knowledge certainly kept our contributions to the project on-track, moving towards a timely completion.”
