J&M Brown Completes Energy Efficient Lighting Retrofit Suffolk U

Boston – J&M Brown Company’s Energy Division, based in Jamaica Plain, has completed the energy efficient lighting upgrade project at Suffolk University Law School on 121 Tremont Street in Boston.  The project scope entailed replacing and re-lamping more than 3,000 existing light fixtures with energy efficient LED fixtures and lamps, greatly reducing wattage consumption at the facility.  NSTAR provided an incentive for the energy savings measure undertaken by the university.

J&M Brown provided installations on a compressed three-week schedule, as the fast-track project was handled during winter break.  The NECA contractor’s crew of 25 IBEW Local 103 electricians performed much of its work on lifts over library stacks and desks. Working in close coordination with general contractor, Siena Construction and architect, STA Design, J&M Brown provided installations efficiently and with minimal disruption to daily operations of the university, which was occupied at time of construction.

Suffolk University Law School’s Sargent Hall is a six-story building which houses classrooms, lecture halls, and libraries, as well as a dining hall and kitchen.  The lighting upgrade project included lighting enhancements to aspects of all six floors of the facility.
