MIT renovated a former warehouse to create a new home for their Theater Arts program. With an aggressive schedule, the building was gutted and rebuilt with a new distribution system, A/V system, Fire Alarm system, and advanced lighting controls. Building W97 now has rehearsal spaces, studios, offices, costume and scene design shops, dressing rooms, and a performance space. This A/V intense job was coordinated through SprectumIT, J&M Brown’s low-voltage company, as a mean of making the whole project run more smoothly.
Upgrade of main library on campus to meet the needs of modern education. J&M Brown was contracted to do the electrical, fire alarm, tel/data and security for this project providing a one-stop solution
Conversion of a former lab building into MIT’s new Department of Facilities and Office of Campus Planning. Comprehensive electrical renovation project includes demolition of existing infrastructure prior to providing ground-up electrical installations:
Comprehensive electrical construction, including primary and emergency power systems, electrical fit-out of entire facility – research labs, classrooms and administrative offices, fire alarm system, and lighting system.
Comprehensive, multi-phase electrical renovation of historic MIT student residence building, circa 1901. Electrical re-construction of building’s state-of-the-art food servery and conference room on first floor; undergraduate student residences on floors 2 through 7.
