Boston, MA – At the historic 160 Federal Street building in downtown Boston, Maria Fallon Electrical Services, LLC, based in Westwood, is nearing completion of the building’s energy-efficiency lighting retrofit project.
The scope is comprised of renovating both exterior and interior lighting at the historic, 24-story Class A office building. Maria Fallon Electrical is replacing the existing exterior façade lighting with LED fixtures, and retrofitting interior lighting in hallways and bathrooms with energy-efficient ballasts. Bathrooms have also been equipped with occupancy sensors.
In total, the NECA Boston/IBEW signatory contractor is replacing over 500 fixtures, 205 of which are exterior LED floodlights that will illuminate the historic façade.
Maria Fallon Electrical, a minority and woman-owned business enterprise (MBE, WBE), commenced work on December 1 and completed all interior lighting installations and much of the exterior lighting project by the end of December to ensure the facility owner could take advantage of 2014 energy rebates.
To meet the aggressive project schedule, Fallon is supervising a field crew of IBEW Local 103 electricians. Close coordination with property manager Taurus Management Services and the facility’s tenants was required in the fully occupied building.
ESCO Energy Services Company of Lenox, Mass. is serving as the project’s primary contractor.
