Wentworth Institute of Technology – Douglas D. Schumann Library

Size: 45,000
Owner: WIT
GC: Consigli Construction
Electrical Crew: 28 at peak

Scope: Upgrade of main library on campus to meet the needs of modern education.  Before construction began J & M Brown did upfront planning and CAD coordination for all the lights and conduit pathways so the project could hit the ground running.  We upgraded the electrical riser throughout building, coordinated fixtures in metal and wooden ceilings, and constructed a dozen conference rooms with AV equipment and Creston room schedulers.  The complete LED fixture package was wired to a networked lighting control system. J&M Brown was contracted to do the electrical, fire alarm, tel/data and security for this project providing a one-stop solution.
