Greg Blais & Catherine COmmons

Meet Greg Blais! A retired Army Veteran, long-time youth hockey official and a highly valued member of the IPD team…Greg is an Electrical Design Engineer with over 30 years of experience. He’s designed electrical systems for hospitals, schools, manufacturing plants, large-scale residential buildings and more. 


One of Greg’s current projects is a mammoth student housing complex in Ithaca, NY. This project, Catherine Commons, is made up of four new buildings consisting of a total of approximately 350 living units. 


Greg is designing much of the electrical infrastructure for this project, including power distribution, lighting, telecommunications, fire alarms, emergency power, and a multitude of high-end technology and advanced security and safety systems. 


This is one of the biggest projects that our team has worked on in our 13 years as a company. Greg says “It’s fun working on big projects like this, I hope we keep them coming.” We couldn’t agree more, Greg!
