Boston, MA – Lighthouse Electrical Contracting, Inc., based in Rockland, MA, has completed the fast-track electrical construction of the 30,000 square-foot, two-level Old Navy store at Millennium Tower in Downtown Crossing. The comprehensive electrical tenant fit-out project entailed installing the store’s power, lighting, fire alarm system, and exterior signage, as well as providing power to the store’s HVAC system and assisting in its commissioning.
The Old Navy store’s interior lighting requirements were a key component of the electrical scope. The store features an open ceiling design and Lighthouse Electrical’s installations included more than 6,000 feet of Unistrut lighting grids which support the extensive LED track-lighting package.
The fire alarm system, furnished and installed by Lighthouse, integrates into the main building’s fire alarm system. The NECA Boston contractor worked in tandem with the fire alarm manufacturer, both in the system’s testing and commissioning.
Lighthouse PM Kenny Grant and Foreman Carl Freedman managed a field crew of 10 IBEW Local 103 electricians in the fast-track 4-month project. The NECA contractor commenced construction in September 2016 and the project was completed as scheduled, in December.
Old Navy opened its Millennium Tower store in January 2017. The Downtown Crossing store is the Northeast flagship store for the retail chain.
