Blain's Farm and Fleet
Blain’s Farm and Fleet is a Wisconsin-based retailer with a varied product selection, including apparel, farm equipment, tires & sporting goods.
This project featured a large retail area, offices, warehouse, receiving area and state-of-the-art auto and small engine shop areas.
Town & Country Group performed all electrical services and installations and provided the infrastructure for the fire and security systems. Our technologies team performed low-voltage installation, which included four rooms with connectivity between them. The project featured 378 data cables for phone communication, point-of-sales, computers, wireless access points, security cameras and HVAC units. Town & Country Group also installed a full 24-zone audio/paging system with speakers throughout the entire building.
Town & Country Group worked closely with the customer in designing more efficient and practical pathways. We also suggested a different style speaker in the high ceiling of the main entry, and we added a zone just for that speaker. This proved to be more aesthetically pleasing and gave the owner more flexibility with the added zone. We also provided cost savings by identifying alternate ways to route cabling pathways resulting in saved time and material.
Prior to its Holland location, the Owner used a design-build approach for all new builds. For this project, Blain’s Farm and Fleet officials mentioned they would eventually like to create a standard set of drawings to use for all future builds. We were determined to help them reach that goal. With the help of our engineering team, we developed and delivered a high-performing design with thorough as-builts for the Owner to use for future builds.
