Holliston, MA (January 2020). Recently recognized as High-A Ballpark of the Decade (2010-2019) by Ballpark Digest, the city of Fayetteville, NC debuted Segra Stadium, a brand-new 4,786-seat sports and entertainment venue, in the Spring of 2019. Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric), a leading electrical subcontractor throughout New England and the Southeast for over four decades, provided installation work for the 100,000-sf facility, which is now home to the Fayetteville Woodpeckers of Class A Advanced Minor League Baseball.
The stadium features natural grass, a 25×70 LED scoreboard, outdoor party deck, and kids zone, as well as luxury suites, field boxes, and a premium club level. When not hosting home games for the Woodpeckers, an affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Houston Astros, the multi-purpose venue will be utilized for special occasions throughout the year, such as weddings, music festivals, private parties, and charitable events.
Griffin Electric was responsible for the electrical work on-site, which included normal and emergency power, a generator, lighting and lighting control. The Griffin team also installed a new 4000A service for the stadium’s main power distribution system, as well as all pathways for telecommunications, broadcasting, audio-visual, security, and the fire alarm system.
Charlotte-based Barton Malow Company and Populous of Kansas City were the project’s general contractor and architect, respectively, while Henderson Engineers of Nashville served as the electrical engineer.
