Aerial Electric does not only work on new construction projects, we can assist with renovation and retrofit projects as well. Below are a few renovation projects we have worked on with our contract partners.
200 Henry Street
Four different six-story connected Mill buildings renovated into 225 apartments. This building was the historic Yale Town & Lock Manufacturing Building, where most Yale locks were made.
Location: Stamford, CT
Number of Units: 225
Mercury and Orpheum Buildings
20 & 21 story high rise narrow towers that were part of New Jersey Medical College and used as dormitory rooms.
Building renovation started with the intent of repurposing into Condominiums however, construction halted with the Great Recession of 2008. Upon continuation, we faced many challenges such as,
- Installing second electric service
- Tight construction schedule
- A Fire alarm system interconnected with the overall campus – 2 of which fully occupied.
Mercury (135 units) Working with our bus duct supplier we successfully found a path for a bus duct riser straight from the basement through all floors to the 21st floor. A very demanding owner drove the schedule and all trades.
Orpheum (157 units) started after the Mercury completion. The main building was connected to an Annex building where the new electric service would be installed. Engineering a pathway for two bus duct risers first vertical for 4 floors, then horizontal and under a connecting bridge, then vertical for 20 stories was difficult to layout, a challenge to install.
Both buildings were successful in phased C of O and move-ins. With various types of environmental concerns, workers safety was taken to a higher level
