Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric) has recently completed the electrical installation work at the updated Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) facility in Cranston, RI.
The facility was renovated in order to better the working environment for DMV employees and streamline the experience for Rhode Island drivers. The 78,000-sf building features many earth-friendly attributes, including high-efficiency mechanical systems and daylight dimming sensors, plus incorporates green building materials such as bamboo and recycled carpeting. For the convenience of drivers, the many types of DMV transactions were distributed on three floors, and enhanced waiting and concession areas were created.
Griffin Electric was responsible for installing new power distribution within the building, in addition to systems for tele/data, security and fire notification. Providence-based Dimeo Construction Co. was the General Contractor on-site, while Lerner Ladds + Bartel, also of Providence, served as the project Architect, and Creative Environment Corp. Consulting Engineers of East Providence was the Electrical Engineer.
“There are an increasing number of projects awarded to us which are built within the LEED certification parameters,” commented Wayne J. Griffin, President of Griffin Electric. “We are glad to be part of any project that is dedicated to the preservation and sustainability of our environment, through the use of earth-friendly materials and procedures.” BD+C
