JP Morgan Chase embarked on a $20 million renovation of their Chase Tower office facility in downtown Rochester, New York. The purpose of the renovation was to consolidate 850 Chase employees in the 27 story, 427,000 square foot high rise. The upgrade would include refurbishment of office spaces, new electrical throughout, and state-of-the-art data and voice technology.
O’Connell has been providing electrical and communications services to the Chase Tower for over 30 years. We were a natural fit for this renovation project. O’Connell subcontracted with The Pike Company to provide full electrical construction and communications systems for the building. Our contracts totaled $6.9 million and the work was completed in 18 months.
The electrical construction portion of the project was comprehensive, involving renovation and updates to 13 floors of the building’s electrical, and UPS systems.
Our communications work encompassed 16 of the building’s 27 floors. Work included build-out of over 3500 Category 6 Systimax voice and data connections, a 24-Strand Fiber Optic and 50-pair Category 3 copper communications backbone, 16 telecommunications rooms, design and construction of the tower’s new data center, and a building-wide card access system. O’Connell also installed the tower’s new fire protection system.
