Frank Lloyd Wright designed Barton House, built in 1903, is currently undergoing a major rehab. It was built for family members of Darwin Martin. We’re proud to be trusted with the electrical upgrades!
Safety is not something you can take or leave alone. It is not an activity in which one participates only when one is being watched or supervised. Safety is not posters or rules, nor is it movies, meetings, investigations or inspections. Safety is an attitude, a frame of mind. It is the awareness of one’s environment and actions, all day, everyday.
Safety is knowing what is going on, knowing what can injure anyone or anything, knowing how to prevent that injury and then acting to prevent it. To do this does not require genius, a Ph.D. or even a rank or title. All it requires is intelligence and a reasonable amount of native ability to see, to hear and to think.
To ignore safe practices does not indicate bravery, only foolishness. To do things safely and correctly is the mark of a wise person, not a timid one.

The Martin Group’s HQ is a dynamic workplace that fuels the communications agency’s unique creative culture. Located in the heart of Buffalo’s Theater District, the building embraces the city’s downtown as a prime center for creative business and serves as a beacon for the city’s urban renaissance.
In order to keep warm blankets in constant supply for patients at Oishei Children’s Hospital, a Warm Up WNY blanket drive is held, which sees the community coming together to help out those in need. It’s incredible to think that without the blanket drive, launched by Senator Tim Kennedy, there might not be a warm blanket to hand out to a sick child. That’s why this initiative has continues to be so successful. But there is never a guarantee that people/businesses will step up to support the donation drive, which is a scary thought.
In 2018, a coalition of local contractors led by Arc Building Partners has teamed together to assist in the Warm Up WNY campaign. The group is also asking that others from the local construction industry do the same thing. So far, Arc Building Partners has joined up with Allied Mechanical, D.V. Brown and Associates, Ferguson Electric Construction, Frey Electric Construction, J.W. Danforth, and Mader Construction, to help out with the effort. Ultimately, the goal is to gather together 8000 new blankets to provide sick children with the warmth that they need as they recuperate during unexpected hospital stays.
Frey Electric Construction Company is pleased to be a part of Business First’s Core Strength as the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus Section Sponsor.
For nearly two decades, there have been many positive changes on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. While even more projects are being planned, active construction is visible throughout the Campus. It is truly an exciting time to be a Buffalonian and Western New Yorker in one of the country’s busiest construction regions – and even more exciting to be a part of many of these great projects.
Back in the early 2000’s, the vision of a downtown campus to inspire collaboration, research, medicine and education seemed like a bold notion. Well, we’ve seen that vision come into fruition. As Buffalo and Western New York turns the corner, the Medical Campus has been a key component, keeping our talented young professionals, while recruiting and bringing in outsiders to our community with high paying jobs.
As we drive down Main, High or North Streets and see the cranes and construction workers, we obviously see the progress. But another way to put this progress into perspective is in jobs. With the completion and relocation of University at Buffalo Medical School and Roswell Park initiatives, the Medical Campus is projected to employee over 17,000 people – close to what Bethlehem Steel employed back in the regions industrial heyday.
Frey Electric is proud of the part we’ve played to help build the Medical Campus and look forward to future developments. We are currently wrapping up the state-of-the-art UB School of Medicine bringing 2,000 faculty, staff and students’ downtown on a daily basis and the new parking garage at Ellicott and Goodrich which will have 1,900 new parking spaces. We’ve successfully completed some of the most technologically complex projects including; the new Roswell Park Clinical Sciences Center Expansion, Conventus Medical Office Building and The Phoenix Brewery Apartments, among others. Each of these projects are a step towards achieving the Medical Campus vision.
So with all of the recent successes happening throughout Western New York, Frey Electric is excited to employ local talent and contribute to Buffalo’s core strength, the people of this community. For over 70 years, both private and public sector clients throughout the area have worked with Frey Electric for our full spectrum of services in the electrical and communication fields. As one of the largest specialty contractors in the area, we provide solutions from design and installation to lifetime maintenance. Our three specific divisions – Industry, Commercial and Residential Complexes – offer diversification that our customers need, all backed up with a dedicated service department, ensuring the region is always up and running.
So let’s power forward Buffalo, the future looks bright.
