Value Delivered

Forest Electric New York (Forest NY) installed general power, lighting, fire alarm, life safety, and security systems for Sprint’s new 77,000-square-foot web-hosting facility. To deliver the project on-schedule, Forest NY employed a dedicated 130-person team that worked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Client Objectives

Sprint sought to construct this new facility in order to meet the needs of their growing business.


Our team installed:

  • General power and lighting systems, including:
    • Six uninterruptable power supply (UPS) systems and associated battery racks
    • Six main distribution units
    • 18 power distribution units with associated panels
    • Static switches and harmonic filters
    • A switchboard room, housing switchgear, UPS equipment, and battery racks
    • 85 risers, pulled from the basement to 10th floor and roof
    • Approximately 7,000 feet of rooftop aluminum conduit
  • Fire alarm systems
  • Life safety and security systems

We also installed four electrical generators, which required an extensive amount of emergency power backup equipment to protect the client’s mission-critical, web-based business.
