What's the reading at the service panel? What do regular 115V outlets read at? What kind of meter are you using? Chances are you have 480/277V 3 phase power to this building. Whoever wired the outlet used a 277V feed, possibly because 240V was not avaliable. You should call an electrician, repair of this problem may involve instalation of a transformer.
