The Electrical scope of work for the iconic 111 Main project included complete power distribution for the core and shell, sourced from two substations; fiber optic infrastructure, and redundant data feeds. This included two 4,000 AMP services and two additional 400 AMP services with three 1,250 kilowatt generators placed on the roof as well as installation of all tele-data components including single mode fiber and copper backbone, public safety antenna, and emergency phone system. The lobby has exquisite lighting design and open column free views. On top of the skyscraper the roof features programmable lights that change colors and can be seen from across the Salt Lake
Valley. The electrical contractor utilized prefabrication and just time deliveries as logistics was crucial to completing this project located in the heart of downtown.
