Boston – MEC Systems, the Hingham-based telecommunications division of McDonald Electrical Corp., has been awarded the comprehensive tel/data installation package for the new 100,000sf, six-story Envoy Hotel project at 70 Sleeper St. in Boston’s Seaport district.
MEC Systems is working on a project team headed by general contractor Lee Kennedy Co., Inc. of Quincy and joined by electrical engineering firm R.G. Vanderweil Engineers of Boston.
Norwich Partners, LLC, based in Sanibel, Fla. and Lebanon, N.H., is the developer.
The NECA contractor’s scope includes providing the infrastructure for the facility’s Honeywell INNCOMM wireless network, wireless access points for the Vingcard back-of-house door security system, and privacy services installations.
The project also includes LED lighting for the hotel lobby’s state-of-the-art feature/accent wall, which will integrate audio and visual systems.
MEC will commence telecom installations in August and manage a field crew of up to eight IBEW Local 103 technicians throughout the eight-month project. Construction of the 136-room boutique hotel is targeted for completion in Spring 2015.
