Electrical subcontractor Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. says it is currently providing installation work on Advance Auto Parts Tower, a 328,600-sq. ft. mixed-use commercial building in Raleigh.
The tower is expected to open in the fall of 2020 and will stand 20-stories high. In addition to 11 floors of office space, the building will also feature an eight-level parking garage, retail space, as well as access to a conference center and terrace-level amenities. Situated in the heart of North Hills in midtown Raleigh, the building is adjacent to a 35-story residential tower and is within walking distance of a variety of restaurants, hotels, retail shops, and entertainment options.
The Raleigh-Durham Griffin team is responsible for the electrical and lighting systems on-site. Griffin Electric’s work will also include installing power distribution, lightning protection, fire alarm systems, and a 750 kW unit generator.
The project team, which anticipates LEED Certification due to the building’s high resource efficiency, also includes construction manager Holder Construction Company. Duda Paine Architects, LLP of Durham is serving as the architect, while Crenshaw Consulting Engineers of Raleigh is the project’s electrical engineer.
