Commercial buildings often have large or multiple electrical services. R Squared Renovations has years of experience and knowledge in the commercial wiring industry and can handle any of your electrical needs for any size project. If you need only the main service or the entire project wired turn key, it can all be done with one call. We have the ability to install main underground feeders, parking lot lighting, transformers, switch gear, and branch circuit panels. All power and lighting needs from office cubicles to showroom lighting are in the scope of our work. We understand power quality and harmonic distortion and know how to minimize the affects. We have worked with many of the major retail chains and installed dimming system and energy management systems that are controlled locally and remotely.
Industrial wiring is also something we are well adapt to doing. Having worked in automotive manufacturing plants, large hospitals, and other parts manufacturing plants has given us the background to wire complex machines with variable frequency drives, DC motors, and large relay control centers. We have worked with medium voltage systems (600v to 4500v) and equipment, along with low voltage systems for DC power and fire alarm systems.
All aspects of commercial and or industrial projects can be taken care of by R Squared Renovations.
An electrical service upgrade to a commercial building may be needed for a number of reasons. If your business is growing and the addition of machinery and or office space is required there is a good chance the existing electrical service is not capable of handling the additional load. Another reason may be downsizing a business and dividing the space to allow for another tenant or business to share the space, in which you would require separate metering of the electricity used. We have the know how to handle either case and we team with competent electrical engineers to provide the necessary load calculations, documentation, and blueprints to meet the requirements of the local jurisdiction or municipality.
Fire or water damage may be another reason for upgrading or replacing the electrical service. In this case, a fast repair may be needed to get the business back up and running quickly to reduce lost production and revenue. We can bring in temporary generators and make the necessary connections to keep your business running while making the permanent repairs to a damaged electrical system.
Old buildings may have old electrical services which can cause problems with new machinery and computer equipment. The older systems may have poor connections and terminations causing unreliable or fluctuating power. Upgrading the electrical service can resolve this situation also.
Back Up Power
Back up power systems can be installed and extremely useful in any type of building. Having a back up generator is a form of insurance for your electrical system and your business or residence. A back up power system can be connected to any or all of the loads you want to keep running in the event of a power failure. The most common situations would be hospitals and healthcare facilities where uninterrupted power may be a matter of life and death. Other scenarios might be frozen or refrigerated food storage, computer equipment and data storage, emergency lighting, elevator power, security systems with electronic locks and gates, and many others.
Back up power systems can be designed specifically for your needs and installed by the professionals at R Squared Renovations. Back up generators are generally diesel, natural gas, or propane powered and are connected to an automatic transfer switch that automatically turns the unit on when utility power is lost. The transfer switch can also be programmed to exercise the unit on a monthly basis to make sure the system remains in proper working order and are going to run when you need them.
In larger systems, multiple generators can be connected together and the power synchronized to meet any demand such as a hospital or high rise building. They can also be very small units that only power one or two circuits, but in any situation, R Squared Renovations can design, supply, install, and maintain your back up power system.
Commercial or industrial buildings are used to generate revenue in one fashion or another and in most cases depend on electricity to power some type of lighting, machine, or computer, so in the event that machine, light or computer doesn’t come on, then you need an experienced commercial electrician to diagnose the problem and make the repair. Having the repair made quickly will reduce lost revenue. Troubleshooting electrical problems requires an experienced and knowledgeable electrician from R Squared Renovations. We have been able to find problems and make repairs where other electricians have been fooled or unable to understand the system and how it works.
Having worked in the electrical service industry for more than 20 years has given us the experience needed to make troubleshooting easy.
Having a problem with the electrical system in a commercial building can also be a safety hazard to employees or customers in the building, which is another reason to get the problem resolved as soon as possible. Loose connections or stray current can cause serious injury if human contact is made and should be repaired right away. If you have computers or machines that are not working properly or lights that flicker, then the first place to look is the electrical system. A quick check with the proper meter can tell what the quality of the power is and reveal most problems.
Preventative maintenance of you electrical system is something every business or building owner should take very seriously. Having a well maintained electrical system will save money and reduce downtime along with keeping the building safe to the people that occupy it. Most insurance companies will give a reduction in premiums with a properly documented preventative maintenance agreement. R Squared Renovations can provide this service to any size building or group of buildings in any application.
Maintaining the electrical system on a scheduled routine basis allows you to identify possible problems before they happen. This allows you to schedule the work or shutdown the system when it is convenient for everyone instead of waiting for the electrical system to decide. This also reduces cost of the repair because parts do not need to be rushed and crews do not need to be called in for emergency repairs.
The use of infrared cameras and power quality analyzers can tell us how the system is performing and what the potential problems are. The infrared camera can help to find failing breakers or poor connections that are generating heat and possibly prevent a fire or interruption in electricity. All components of the electrical system can be tested or monitored to check their performance and should be done in all commercial buildings.
