ECI completed a $7.8 million electrical and systems install for this $92 million, 225,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art new high school. The project included electrical work on band, choir and orchestra rooms, wood and metal shops, as well as a computer graphics center, media center, auditorium, TV studio, three art studios, CAD and electronics\robotics rooms, science, chemistry and physics labs, as well as 43 standard classrooms. Work included installing classroom LED dimming light fixtures with daylight harvesting sensors, occupancy sensors with building management system (BMS) override, and dimming emergency lighting relays throughout the building (for use during emergency generator operation). ECI installed telecommunications and A\V systems within each classroom – along with CAT 6 Data outlets, wireless local area networks, smart board projectors integrated into the classroom PA speakers, and Infrared Microphone/Transmitters. ECI installed a fire alarm system with building lockdown capabilities and a MASS notification system, security Access controls, video intercom, intrusion detection and video surveillance. This also included a system capable of sending graphic displays directly to police and emergency responder’s vehicles and 125 recordable security cameras throughout the facility.
ECl’s pre-construction team utilized building information modeling (BIM) CAD drawings to lay out the entire electrical project, a crucial step for overall quality control. ECl built many project components in its FAB Shop, saving valuable time and ensuring the highest quality.
