Griffin Electric Executes Improvements to Athletic Facilities at UConn

STORRS, CT — Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric), an electrical subcontractor throughout New England and the Southeast for over four decades, recently completed work on UConn’s Athletic District Development in Storrs, Connecticut. Spanning 23 acres, the project involved renovations to some of the aging facilities on campus, specifically for the Division I soccer, baseball, softball, and lacrosse programs.

Each of these athletic programs received new playing field surfaces and accompanying seating. Additionally, this project involved the construction of a new 54,000-square-foot Performance Center, which houses concessions, locker rooms, areas for weight training and sports medicine, and administrative office space.

Griffin Electric’s on-site services included the installation of new medium-voltage transformers, low-voltage switchgear, panelboards, and related distribution. Griffin was also responsible for the installation of new building and remote building branch lighting and power, low voltage systems including telecom, security, and access control systems. The Griffin team, along with its project partners, installed wiring for the new stadium lighting including foundations, poles, light racks, and controllers.

Daniel O’Connell’s Sons of Holyoke, Massachusetts, managed the project, working directly with New Haven-based Newman Architects and electrical engineering firm BVH Integrated Services of Bloomfield, Connecticut.

In the electrical contracting business since 1978, Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. has served on projects in a range of markets throughout New England and Southeast. Headquartered in Holliston, Massachusetts, the company also has regional offices in Pelham, Alabama, Duluth, Georgia, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.
