Cambridge, MA – State Electric Corp. of Bedford is in early phase electrical construction of Lesley University’s College of Art & Design project on Mass. Ave. in Porter Square, Cambridge. The new $46 million Lunder Arts Center, a landmark project for the college, integrates modern design and historic architecture. A new, contemporary four-story structure will connect to the historic former North Prospect Church by a three-story, glass wall commons that will serve as the entrance to the Arts Center, opening to a plaza on Mass. Ave. The former church will be relocated in November to a lot adjacent to the new facility, and in an adaptive reuse project will undergo an extensive restoration and renovation to incorporate an arts library and art studios. State Electric’s comprehensive electrical project scope includes providing the facility’s primary and emergency power, lighting and lighting control systems, and fire alarm system installations. The NECA contractor is currently providing temporary power to the site.
