We take special pride in participating on projects that create a stronger community. Construction and renovation of schools and religious institutions offer unique challenges and opportunities that we are especially qualified to tackle. Our skilled team and client focus allow us to maintain project management consistency, assist in long term planning and ensure that necessary safety precautions are taken on-site for the protection of all participants. We are also conscious of the flexibility required during construction of these facilities due to the high volume of people that can be involved and the inability to shut down the site completely during construction.
New Construction and Remodeling
A large piece of Brda’s focus is on new commercial electrical installation. We have performed numerous projects including new church facilities, auditorium stage lighting projects and complete electrical systems for large scale property management firms. We also specialize in tenant finish construction and remodeling, to realize your renovation dreams, and promote your apartment complex, school, or religious institution’s future productivity.
Commercial Electrical Upgrades
Should your apartment building, school or church decide to expand and find that the existing electrical service is inadequate for the added electrical demand, Brda Electric can provide the expertise in evaluating your current demand, determining your future demand, and making the necessary upgrades to allow for expansion. We work closely with local utility companies to make sure that the installation happens quickly, safely and efficiently.
Fire Alarm Systems
Brda Electric can provide your apartment complex, school, or church with a comprehensive fire alarm system. We work closely with many fire alarm suppliers and monitoring companies, as well as Fire Marshals with jurisdiction to ensure a complete and operable fire alarm system. Many apartment, school and church fires are caused by electrical problems. These include improper use of extension cords, damaged flexible cords, overloaded circuits, and defective appliances.
The following advice should be heeded to prevent future fires at your commercial building:
- Electrical installations and wiring throughout the complex should be installed and maintained by a qualified electrician.
- Extension cords should not be used as a replacement for permanent electrical wiring. Extension cords are designed for temporary use only. They should be kept free from damage, and the wiring size should be appropriate for the amperage of the appliance it is supplying. Use only UL listed cords.
- Maintain flexible cords to appliances (i.e. lamps, toasters, etc.) in good condition and place them where they are not subject to damage. Replace damaged, frayed, dried, or cracked cords.
- Overloaded circuits can occur when too many appliances are plugged into one circuit, exceeding the capacity of the wiring, heating the wiring, causing the possibility of a fire. Never plug in more appliances than the receptacle will accept.
