Are you messing with us? I thought you said you knew a little about electrical?
The brown is 'A' phase on a 3 phase 480 volt system. Somewhere, even multiple places in the building there are transformers that are converting 480/277 to 208/120 find that 208/120 panel and run a circuit from there to where you need to use your tools.
You cannot tap out of your lighting circuit and create a 120 volt circuit, it is absolutely against the law. And if you were in a place that was intended to be occupied then there would be a regular 120V circuit there for you to use.
