Scope of Work
Mid-City was selected for the Cristo Rey High School Renovation Project in Spring 2013. What was once the Columbus School for the Deaf was transformed into a new home for Cristo Rey High School, which is a Catholic college-prep academy in Central Ohio. The former school for the Deaf is one of Columbus’ historical gems, as it was built in 1898. Working to revitalize the older 85,000 square-foot structure while maintaining its 19th Century charm, our team completed all electrical and Teledata components, including a comprehensive building-wide LED lighting system, fire alarm system, room occupancy sensors, a 65 KW generator, all new switchgear, SEC communication rough-in, and lightning protection.
To maximize efficiency and maintain quality, Mid-City utilized the prefab shop to create devices such as box whips, light fixtures, and fire alarm boxes, which helped to streamline the construction process and maintain schedule and budget.
Utilizing value-engineering, our teams worked to make many installations invisible as a way to satisfy the building’s historical tax credit standards. Cristo Rey High School was completed in Fall 2014.
