It was a very special Friday night under the lights, where members of McPhee Electric and the community were honored at St. Paul Catholic High School on senior night for their contribution to the athletic field lighting and bleacher project. The lights and poles were donated to the project by Fairfield University, and McPhee Electric coordinated the installation of a new electrical service to the field.
This was an EPC (Engineer-Procure-Construct) project. McPhee Electric also provided engineered drawings which included lighting and power design which was used for permitting and construction.
McPhee Electric provided:
- The utility transformer pad, service switch, meter socket, panel and equipment cabinet.
- Conduit, wire and in-ground junction boxes for the sports lighting.
- Concrete bases for the sports lighting poles.
- Electrical service to the concession stand
- Site lighting for the picnic tables and walkway.
- Assistance to Musco Sports Lighting in the final aiming of the sports lighting.
A New Haven Train station goes modern with an impressive Daktronics display installed and connected by McPhee.
Recently, the New Haven train station removed their existing "split-flap" display system that was utilized to provide information regarding the arrival and departures of the trains and purchased a modern electronic display from Daktronics, Inc. of Brookings, South Dakota.
As an Authorized Service Contractor (ASC) for Daktronics, McPhee Electric Ltd.’s lead technician, David Hewitt, was instrumental in supporting the Daktronics field representative with the coordination between the rigging contractor and on-site electricians.
Once the new displays were mounted in place, David provided the necessary guidance to ensure that all internal electrical and fiber optic connections were secure and properly mated prior to the displays receiving power.
Upon energizing the displays, David initiated a test pattern (see picture below) to determine if there were any visual issues prior to performing the final commissioning and subsequent training with the train station staff.
