What to Consider for Large Scale Commercial Electric Projects

Are you a business owner that has a commercial building, warehouse, or other industrial building that relies on large scale electrical service? Making the right electrical decisions for your building is important – especially if you are planning a remodel, renovation, or redesign. Large scale power needs require some unique considerations, in addition to the expertise of commercial electricians. So, if you have a project in mind for your commercial space, there are few things to think about when it comes to your electricity.

#1: Remember energy efficiency.

Commercial buildings should be designed to save energy and money. If your current building is outdated and you’re considering a remodel, consider a ‘whole-building’ approach to energy savings. This means that all parts of the building are designed to work together as one system. Whether it’s installing LED lights, or replacing machinery with Energy Star equipment, keeping energy savings at the forefront of your planning is key.

#2: Keep safety your top priority.

In 2019, it was estimated that fire departments around the United States responded to a fire every 24 seconds. Unfortunately, many of these are in commercial buildings and are often preventable. Electrical fires can start from a variety of things, but one of the most common ways they begin is through improperly wired electrical work. At Tapps Electric, our commercial electricians have the training, licensing, and hands-on experience needed to ensure your large scale commercial electrical project gets done the right way, the first time.

#3: Consider building security.

When looking at a large commercial electrical project, it is important to consider how you plan on keeping your building and the people inside of it safe. Is your security system up to date so you, your building, and your employees are better protected? Be proactive about your security rather than reactive. Set up LED floodlights or motion-sensor lights in your parking lot and around the perimeter of the building. Install quality security cameras that keep an eye on the space 24/7. Our commercial electricians at Tapps Electric can help get your building’s security system wired and installed quickly, so you can rest easy knowing that everything is monitored and safeguarded.

#4: Choose the right professional electricians.

Unlicensed contractors that complete commercial electrical jobs are doing uncertified electrical work. Their work could be putting your commercial property, your employees, your products, and your entire business at risk. When you are doing research on potential electricians to hire, make sure you get you ask for their electrical license number or ask for details on where you can find that information. If they won’t answer the question, or they don’t have the information available, this could be a red flag. If you hire a company or electrician that is not backed by licensure with the right training, you could be liable for the electrical project – including any mistakes that happen.

At Tapps Electric, you can always expect highly skilled commercial electricians, workmanship that takes all the details into account, and honesty. Our licensed and bonded electricians have the training and tools needed to complete your large scale commercial electrical job safely. Contact our team today to talk to us about your project.
