In October 2009, we completed a 30,000sq ft. catering hall/restaurant owned by Mr. Frank Russo of Russo’s on the Bay.  Mr. Russo’s latest endeavor is called Vetro, visit  The project was a new construction right on the water in Howard Beach, NY.  The project consisted of a 2000 amp building service feeding three floors and a roof for restaurant and catering services.

Much of the work was design build in nature, we installed a 150kw generator for lighting and refrigeration, NYFD approved fire alarm system, accent and general purpose lighting, HVAC power and control wiring, and data/telco wiring.  The project includes three commercial kitchens and two, large wine temperature controlled rooms.  The lighting dimming system we designed is the Lutron graphic eye system and is installed on each floor with keypads remotely located for control of each zone of lights.  With the simple push of a button five different scenes can be achieved.  Color changing LED lights in the restaurant and second floor catering room enhance the celebration and event.  Color changing LED lighting was also installed in the sidewalk and on the exterior of the building.  With the simple push of a button the lights change from green for St. Patrick’s day to red for Valentine’s day or red-white-blue for Independence day, sixteen different color changing schemes were programmed.
