The Role of Electrical Contractors in Brooklyn Construction Projects

Everyone wants to live and/or work in Brooklyn it seems. Over a decade ago, an exodus from the high cost of living in Manhattan brought about a renewed interest in the vintage housing options in this once-overlooked borough. Today, most of the major construction projects in Brooklyn are residential properties, each featuring some or entirely affordable housing units. And by residential, we mean multi-units to skyscrapers, all intended to meet the surging interest for individuals, businesses, and families across all socio-economic groups to live in Brooklyn. If you do not believe us- here are several projects nearing completion as we write:

Third Street– 815 new apartments with 137,900 square feet of commercial space.

Fulton Street: 51-Story Skyscraper: 591 apartments and 30,000 square feet of retail space.

Java Street: 834 units with 13,000 square feet of retail space.

Dupont Street: A 40-story tower with 378 units and about 3,000 square feet set aside for retail.

Euclid Avenue: A 14-story building featuring 436 units of affordable housing.

That raises the question, what types of contractors are required to bring about these new living spaces? Construction electrical services are key to the success of any project, particularly residential housing developments, where each unit requires its service. The region’s leading real estate developers frequently turn to ACM Electrical Contracting Corp, when professional services by a qualified, experienced Brooklyn construction electrician are required.

Every building has electrical power, communications needs, lighting, and control systems that must be installed during construction and later maintained throughout their service life. These systems then power lights, appliances, machinery, and equipment that run businesses and enhance the everyday lives of the buildings’ residents.   

Typically, a commercial electrician in Brooklyn, working on a local construction project will be expected to perform the following tasks and possess associated skillsets:

  • Read blueprints or technical diagrams.
  • Install and maintain wiring, control, and lighting systems.
  • Inspect electrical components, such as transformers and circuit breakers.
  • Identify electrical problems using a range of testing devices.
  • Repair or replace wiring, equipment, or fixtures using hand tools and power tools such as conduit benders, to run and protect wiring. Additionally, Brooklyn construction electricians will use screwdrivers, wire strippers, drills, and saws. Also, professional construction electrical services include troubleshooting, therefore ACM’s electrical contractors on Brooklyn projects may also use ammeters, voltmeters, thermal scanners, and cable testers to find problems and ensure that components are working properly.
  • Compliance: Follow state and local building regulations based on the National Electrical Code.
