Griffin Electric Contributes to Revitalization of Downtown Worcester


St. Vincent Cancer Center

Worcester, MA —- Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. has completed the electrical installation work on two projects within City-Square, a 12-acre redevelopment project in Worcester.

The first of the two projects involved the renovation of the City-Square East Parking Garage. The Griffin Electric team was responsible for electrical work within the multi-story garage renovation, which entailed the installation of new switchgear, lighting and fire alarm systems.

Leggat McCall Properties, of Boston, managed the project’s completion, while Consigli Construction Co., Inc., of Milford, served as the construction manager.   Arrowstreet Inc., of Somerville, was the architect, and WSP Flack + Kurtz, of Boston, the electrical engineer.

A 65,000sf Cancer Center for St. Vincent Hospital is yet another portion of the Worcester revitalization project, where Griffin Electric had provided the electrical installation. The three-story facility serves to consolidate ambulatory medical and radiation oncology services, relocating from its former Vernon Hill location.  Comprehensive cancer care, including radiation therapy, medical oncology, chemotherapy, cancer imaging and other outpatient services, such as psychological and social services, physical therapy and nutrition, are available to the community in this new downtown, centralized location.

Working in conjunction with general contractor, Gilbane Building Company, of Worcester, with architect, Symmes, Maini & McKee Associates, of Cambridge, and electrical engineer, Thompson Consultants, Inc., of Marion, the Griffin Electric team was responsible for installing systems for fire alarm, power, lighting and distribution on-site.

Additionally, telecommunications work by Griffin included category 5e data lines throughout the facility and workstation cabling. Copper and fiber backbone was installed from the MDF (Main Distribution Frame) to each IDF (Independent Distribution Frame), and Griffin furnished and installed the racks, patch panels and necessary wire management for the telecom rooms and installed the access control and security wiring to support the facility.
