JM Electrical Co. has completed project operations at Harvard Memorial Church, a historic development located in the center of Harvard Yard in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The church was built in 1932 as a gift from Harvard University alumni to honor those who died in World War I.

In partnership with a building technology company, JM Electrical utilized wireless technology due to the building’s complexities and completed the HVAC control system for the upper and lower levels of the church in October 2016. The project’s foreman, Jim Mowe, oversaw four electricians throughout the duration of the project.

“We were happy to work on such a notable Harvard landmark,” said Adam Palmer, project manager at JM Electrical. “It was important with this job to ensure the preservation of the building and comfort of its visitors to enable year-round use, which is what the new control system will allow. Not only that, but the smart energy system will result in maximized energy efficiency and reduced energy costs for the church.”
