Retail & Entertainment Lighthouse Elec. Completes Old Navy Boston – Lighthouse Electrical Contracting, Inc., based in Rockland, has completed the fast-track electrical construction of the 30,000sf, two-level Old Navy store at Millennium Tower in Downtown Crossing. The comprehensive electrical tenant fit-out project entailed installing the store’s power, lighting, fire alarm system, and exterior signage, as well as providing power to the store’s HVAC system and assisting in its commissioning. Hirsch Construction Corp., Danvers, was the general contractor, and the architect on the project was Sargenti Architects of Paramus, N.J. The Old Navy store’s interior lighting requirements were a key component of the electrical scope. The store features an open ceiling design, and Lighthouse Electrical’s installations included more than 6,000 feet of Unistrut lighting grids, which support the extensive LED tracklighting package. The fire alarm system, furnished and installed by Lighthouse, integrates into the main building’s fire alarm system. The NECA Boston contractor worked in tandem with the fire alarm manufacturer,

8D on Track for Summer Opening Ironwood GC Malden, MA – Around the corner from Boda Borg, completed by Ironwood in 2015, 8D Room Escape & Board Games will occupy a 3,300sf space in Malden Center and will open to the public early summer 2017. The concept was designed and developed by QB Entertainment of Quincy. The project began in October 2016 with a full conception-to-construction delivery model. Ironwood’s design-build team, led by Molly Pidgeon, has worked side by side with QB Entertainment owners Derrick Zhao and Mo Liang, making every inch of this space visually intriguing and mentally stimulating. Upon stepping into the reception area, guests will feel they are in for a sensory experience. The textures and colors at the entry evoke a sense of drama and hint at the experiential environments beyond the archway. Lead designer and project manager Resa Gray encountered many existing condition challenges impacting design and construction, including low ceiling heights, floor elevation changes, and the overall condition of the space due to its being vacant for so long.
