Previously the home to the B&M Railroad Department, the newly repurposed building houses the college’s performing arts programs, which consist of theater, dance, and music.

The Griffin Electric team was responsible for the installation of new electrical service equipment, as well as lighting within the building. Additionally, systems for fire alarm, lightning protection, theater controls, telecommunications, and security were part of the company’s electrical contract.

Powering and lighting the tower clocks, notable features of the building, was also performed by Griffin. The team’s onsite telecommunications work included a structured cable solution, in addition to intrusion detection and video intercom systems.
