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.
