Roberto Cavalli Install

We have been contracted to install the electrical and low voltage at the new Roberto Cavalli store at the Premium Hills Outlets. It has been a six week project and it is nearly complete. We started the rough back in May and have been on site with our crew since the project began. We have had a few bumps here and there along the way but it all worked out as it usually does when we submit every day to the Lord Yeshua! We begin everyday in Word and prayer for everything from safety to protection and everything in between.

Existing Panel

The existing panel was from the prior tenant. Some of our circuits were already run through existing conduit along the ceiling of which we were able to use for some of our front of house electrical runs however, we had to get the wires into the panel from above and from the automated panel that we removed which was right next to the panel we were going to use. It was a large process to move the existing circuits into the “new” panel and then insert the existing runs that were over to the panel through conduits. So, we installed j-boxes 13′ above floor finish (AFF) and connected them into the panel with 3/4″ and 1″ conduit runs. We ran new conduits down the wall attached to unistrut and into the panel where we were able to connect our runs in the j-boxes. We did other things to get it done but the blessing with this process is that we were able to use the existing panel to lengthen some of our wires with wire nuts in order to make it to the breakers. Much like a large junction box.

Commercial Fabrication Shop

Over the last week we have been very busy. Sorry we haven’t had time to post anything during that time. We have been installing large commercial equipment for a Fabrication Shop.

This De-burring machine is 3 phase 480v 70 amps. The machine was moved to a new location and we had to rewire it and get it working. We didn’t have a lot of time to do it being that the owner had a large order to complete. We had to remove a section of the power run and relocate it with an additional 40 ft. of conduit and wire. We installed pull boxes at two locations and attached everything to the ceiling using existing unistrut and we added several feet as well. The main sub-panel was not marked correctly so that added a little time to the project just trying to figure out which phases were going where. In the end we had the machine up in two days.

We also added a circuit for a cutting machine that took us a little over a half day to complete.

Bidding Bonanza

Every now and again we receive opportunities to bid on large projects. There is one in particular that I’m thinking of that is a job to replace all of the exterior lighting for an entire storage facility. This job is so big that it will take a crew of three men approximately 2 weeks to complete it.

The kicker is that each of the lights are about $1000 ea. and there are quite a few to replace. A lot of times you will submit a bid and never really expect it to come to pass, and then it does. On the other hand, there are those that you say to yourself “We will get this one” and it slips through you fingers. You never know.

So for now, we will continue to bid on large projects and you never know which one you’ll get until the contract is signed.

Trailer Park Mayhem

We got a phone call from a Trailer Park that had an emergency. While digging for a new gas line a Backhoe Operator hit an electrical line that fed the Park’s main office. The Park was built in the 1960’s and the cable that the Operator hit was a direct burial multi-cable that consisted of 3 -#8 stranded copper wires.

We repaired the cable with underground conduit and two 4″ square PVC water tight j-boxes. We used liquid tight connectors on the cable and inserted the cut ends into the boxes then, we ran a 3/4″ schedule 40 PVC in between.

Here, we were putting on the rubber rings here over the cable ends which made our connection water proof.
