In October 1998, Mass Electric Construction Co. formed a joint venture with Garnet Electrical Co. of Florence, AL to perform the electrical work at the 1.7 million sq. ft. Delta IV Rocket Facility. In less than nineteen months, the site was transformed from farmland into a facility capable of mass producing forty rockets per year.
The electrical sub-contract work included extensive 15KV interlocked armored cable distributed on cable tray, feeding thirty -one 15KV substations located throughout the facility.
The building lighting, fire alarm, bridge cranes and HVAC systems were installed using 100 ft. by 40 ft. movable rack platforms that MEC shared with all other trade, making coordination a top priority.
