For commercial retail space design, the finest plans showcase products and create an environment that promotes shopping. A sound electrical infrastructure makes these plans possible. The ultimate goals are an increased number of customers and, consequently, sales.
The main concern of initial planning is the electrical service that enters the facility. Changes may be required to properly distribute power according to code. The planned access, locations, and load types for powering machinery, equipment, signage, and point-of-purchase areas all must be taken into consideration, along with the outlets, access panels, and dedicated power needed.
Lighting directs the movement of customers, and its design is critical at building and store entrances. Once enticed to enter, customers should then have their attention directed to the items that a store wants to showcase for marketing campaigns. The primary tool for visual merchandising is accent lighting. For dramatic effect, architectural lighting is utilized for creating light and dark areas, highlighting desired interior features.
Overhead lighting, both florescent and recessed, should be spaced evenly to ensure consistency so there are no darkened areas that negatively impact sales. Installing LED fixtures will provide cost savings due to their longer service lives.
Exterior and interior lighting can be programmed and controlled remotely. Automation ensures that all areas are illuminated properly around the clock. This promotes energy conservation and cost savings.
A dynamic sound system is one more effective method for gaining the attention of customers and creating a mood that helps increase sales. Broadcasting music that creates excitement and announcements that introduce special promotions can help generate enthusiasm among shoppers.
Exciting new visual methods, such as digital signage and video walls, are appealing to today’s customers and promote impulse sales by providing information regarding the latest promotions.
The most successful retailers are also the best at creating a store atmosphere that generates excitement and connects emotionally with shoppers. The sound planning of a retail facility’s electrical system requires an experienced team consisting of a licensed electrical contractor, lighting designer, and civil engineer.

Planning for a home remodeling or addition means considering the various elements that make up the project. Your focus will probably be on the aesthetics of your project, but the electrical system is of equal importance. One of the most important decisions you can make before starting work is your choice of electrician.
Integrating a home or office’s electrical and lighting systems will allow the automation, control, and monitoring of your lighting fixtures. A sound design will increase convenience and energy efficiency, along with improving the aesthetics and ambience, of a residence or workplace. Consulting with an experienced electrical services company for the installation of a universal lighting control system will bring about the best results for either new construction projects or retrofits.
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) estimates almost 80% of home builders are now installing structured wiring for entertainment and data. However, some homes need this wiring installed or upgraded. Many electrical services companies are skilled and experienced in this field, so consider them for the hi-tech infrastructure for your home.
