The Lumen at Playhouse Square is a residential high-rise luxury apartment complex situated in the heart of downtown Cleveland’s Theatre District. The new 34-story tower consists of over 600,000 square feet and houses 318 apartment suites. In addition, the Lumen provides an on-site parking garage and resident focused amenities such as fitness center, outdoor terraces, swimming pool, and multiple social gathering areas and lounges.
Lake Erie Electric was partnered with and awarded this project in 2018 based on our company’s reputation as an industry leader and our extensive knowledge and experience in electrical construction. The scope of work contracted to Lake Erie Electric included, not only electrical construction, but also several other trade packages such as: structured cabling, mass notification, CCTV, and access control.
The Lumen tower required a strict, extensive, and demanding coordination process that included BIM modeling as a pre-construction task to develop and virtually construct the building systems prior to actual installation. BIM modeling was also essential to the submittal and shop drawing process allowing us to have the capability to layout electrical bus duct risers to exact lengths and bends throughout the building. In addition, Lake Erie Electric utilized surveying techniques with Total Station equipment to identify and pinpoint exact locations for thousands of stub-ups and stub-downs throughout the thirty-four floors.
The Lumen at Playhouse Square highlighted Lake Erie Electric’s overarching electrical construction capabilities through all aspects of pre-construction and construction. As a contractor at the forefront of industry innovations, Lake Erie Electric established and utilized industry leading methods, tools, and technologies to bring The Lumen to life with an accurate, functional, safe, and successful installation
