Without Wayne J. Griffin Electric involved, the project would not be a resounding success story. … part of the Cancer Center project success was directly linked to the work of the Wayne J. Griffin Electric team.

“The complexity of the work that WJGEI had to execute was beyond any electrical plans that I had seen before. The entire electrical system throughout the building is state of art. [WJGEI’s] installation included lighting controls for all rooms/offices/lobbies/exhibits, exterior/interior lighting, kitchen equipment, [mechanical] shades, and the geothermal HVAC system. All of these systems are state of the art and required extensive knowledge and precision which [Griffin] possesses both.
Also, because of the ‘attention to detail’ approach [Griffin] takes in executing a project, they were the first group to be signed off after commissioning. With a facility this size and the multiple complex systems that were installed, this is a magnificent compliment to [Griffin Electric].
The quality of their work and customer support is first class.”
