Dartmouth, MA JM Electrical Company, Inc. has completed project operations at Bristol County Sheriff’s office, a correctional facility.
JM staff worked with energy leaders to complete a full energy upgrade of the entire campus. This included upgrading the hot and chilled water systems, air handling units (AHUs), and miscellaneous HVAC equipment throughout the jail. The renovations to the equipment allow the facility to now effectively optimize its energy, saving Bristol County money in the long-term.
“Having a streamlined heating, ventilation and cooling system throughout these facilities is essential to maximizing energy use as well as tax dollars,” said Adam Palmer, project manager at JM. “Older, inefficient systems tend to run constantly every day, using energy at times that it is not needed. Upgrading the equipment in the facility enables more efficient energy use, ultimately saving the prison money.”
The energy conservation initiative at Bristol County was a Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) project. DCAMM is responsible for many major public building construction, facilities management, and other services for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
JM Electrical’s team of five electricians over the course of the six month project ensured that it was completed on time and on budget. Previously, JM staff has also worked on energy upgrades at both Middlesex Sheriff’s Office and Norfolk County Sheriff’s Office as well.
JM Electrical has more than 30 years of experience and expertise in the installation of advanced control and automation systems, and has completed multiple large-scale installations at developments in the Greater Boston area recently. Among these are Northeastern University’s Interdisciplinary Science & Engineering Complex, Boston University’s Center for Integrated Life Sciences & Engineering, and Harvard Memorial Church.
