EXTERIOR POWER & EXCAVATION
The electrical panel administers electricity throughout a business.
It distributes electrical power into subsidiary circuits. You’ll often see the power divided among rooms or large electrical appliances. The electrical panel contains a circuit breaker, which halts energy flow when it becomes hazardous. When a breaker is automatically activated, it stops electrical current by interrupting the flow.
Power infrastructure for buildings up to 1M sq. ft. - from the main distribution to step-down transformers, feeders, branch circuitry, and lighting
Interior electrical work; custom build-outs for commercial distributors, retailers, dealerships, manufacturers, healthcare, and many more industries
A branch circuit is part of the electrical system that originates at the main service panel and feeds electricity throughout the structure. There are 120-volt branch circuits that supply power to standard outlets and fixtures, along with 240-volt circuits that power major appliances.
Both 120-volt and 240-volt branch circuits can vary in the amount of power they deliver—a quantity measured by amperage. Branch circuits for 120-volt circuits are usually 15-amp or 20-amp circuits, although occasionally they will be larger than that. For 249-volt circuits, the amperage is more often 30-, 40-, or 50-amps.
Fast-moving businesses have rapidly-changing power needs - there's times where you need power in a particular location, and you need it there as quickly as possible.
We'll assess your existing electrical infrastructure and determine the most effective path to deliver your power needs as quickly as possible. For example, your electrical infrastructure might enable the power draw in a particular location but would put stress under current structure.

Until recent years, directional boring was only an alternative solution when excavation or trenching wouldn’t work for the project scope . But today, directional boring is fast becoming the preferred solution for many clients.
Directional boring is basically a “no dig” or “trenchless” technology utilized to install underground piping and conduit. It eliminates the need for surface excavation in the installation of underground gas, electric, water and telecommunication lines. Depending on your soil conditions, environment and budget, directional boring may be best suited to your project.
