Brighton, MA – Aldon Electric, Inc., headquartered in Weymouth, has completed electrical construction of the new six-story, 171,244sf Radius Apartments project at 530 Western Ave. in Brighton.
The core and shell electrical construction project included all electrical installations for the level one parking garage, lobby, four residential floors comprised of 132 apartments, and a sixth-floor rooftop/amenity space.
Aldon’s comprehensive electrical scope included installation of primary and emergency power, electrical distribution, interior and exterior lighting, and the state-of-the-art Lutron lighting control system, a Honeywell Notifier fire alarm system, and fit-out of all residential units.
The NECA Boston contractor also handled commissioning of the fire alarm system and is providing system monitoring. Tel/data installations were handled by Boxborough-based Comm-Tract, working as a subcontractor to Aldon Electric.
The project team included architect, Prellwitz Chilinksi Associates Inc., Cambridge; GC, Cranshaw Construction, Newton Lower Falls; EE, WSP, Boston; and developer, Mount Vernon Company, Boston.
The building’s physical length and unique design made it necessary to divide the construction project into four sections, which added to the scheduling and logistical challenges. Project manager Brendan Dilgard commented, “The project required effective planning and management of equipment deliveries and scheduling of crews in close coordination with the general contractor, Cranshaw Construction, to ensure the owner’s schedule and budget requirements were met.”
The Radius project is designed and constructed to achieve LEED Silver Certification with numerous energy-efficiency features including Nest Thermostats, LED lighting, and electric car charging stations.
