Griffin Electric completes Iredell County Public Safety Center Project

Holliston, MA (April 2019). Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric), a leading electrical subcontractor throughout New England and the Southeast, has successfully completed installation work on new construction of the Iredell County Public Safety Center in Statesville, NC. The 40,000-sf building spans 16 acres and accommodates the county’s fire marshal, emergency management, emergency medical services (EMS) and emergency communications 911 Center.

The facility is built to withstand a natural disaster and maintain its operations, and more than doubles the space for the departments, which will be in the same building unlike previously. With enough room for 14 ambulance trucks, the complex also features a fitness room, three conference rooms, office space, as well as a kitchen area, work room, and two break rooms; break rooms contain monitors that display a visual of emergency activity across the county so employees are always informed.

Under the direction of Region Manager Tim Passatore, along with Mike Burke, Project Manager, the Charlotte Griffin team was responsible for the buildout of a 2,000-amp electrical service and two paralleling 500 kW generators. Griffin Electric was also tasked with installing systems for an uninterruptible power source (UPS), lighting control, emergency lighting, fire alarm, as well as raceways for telecommunications and security.

In addition to Griffin Electric, the design-build team also consisted of Edifice, Inc. and ADW Architects, both of Charlotte, who served as construction manager and architect, respectively.
