Careful Planning Is Key for Large Scale Commercial Projects

Large scale electrical projects for commercial buildings require considerable preparation. If you own or manage an industrial or commercial building, it’s important to carefully plan each step of the process. J & S Electrical Contractors, Inc. can help you design energy-efficient electrical systems for your apartment building, industrial facility, warehouse, or other commercial building. Our project plans place high priority on safety and security and follow OSHA standards as well as industry regulations. 

Here’s our advice on how to manage your large scale commercial project with the assistance of local master electricians.

1. Make Energy Efficiency the Top Priority

Designing or retrofitting commercial and industrial buildings should include energy-saving changes. As part of your remodel or new build, take a whole building approach. All parts of the structure act as a single system that maximizes energy conversation.

Here are a few ways to incorporate this in your electrical design: 

  • Install LED lights.
  • Replace outdated HVAC equipment and appliances with Energy Star rated equipment.
  • Install smart power strips.
  • Use motion sensors to control light in common areas.
  • Keep energy saving top of mind during the planning phase.

When considering energy-saving electrical projects, we recommend starting with an audit to prioritize upgrades. 

2. Maintain Safety Throughout the Project

It’s critical to have in place safety measures that will prevent electrical shocks and fires. When you work with experienced commercial electricians, you can rest assured that you’ll end up with properly wired boxes, lighting, and outlets that meet local and national codes. 

Here are a few additional tips to consider:

  • Install a 3-hour fire-rated access panel.
  • Use designated circuit breakers to regulate energy consumption.
  • Hire professionals specializing in commercial and industrial electrical work. 
  • Replace damaged outlets promptly.

3. Enhance Building Security

For a large commercial electrical project, you can include ideas to make your building more secure. Consider an updated security system in your electrical design and set up LED floodlights around the building perimeter for high visibility. Additionally, motion-sensor lighting and security cameras monitor activity around the clock. For fast installation and upgrade services for smart security features, you can trust the trained and courteous electricians at J & S Electrical Contractors.
