All the Resources of Other Electrical Contractors – Plus Some

All the Resources of Other Electrical Contractors – Plus Some

Jim Sullivan, an Electrical Service Project Manager with Baker Group, says, “Our Electrical Service team has all the experience and resources you’d expect from an electrical contractor, but there’s not one Service technician anywhere who has seen it all. As part of Baker Group, our team has backup from experts in our Engineering, Design, Sheet Metal, Mechanical, Automation and other business units.

“Tapping this expertise leads to faster, better, more cost-efficient repairs,” he says.

Within Baker Group’s Service team, six journeyman electricians and two project managers are dedicated to troubleshooting, identifying and fixing problems related to:

  • Power distribution
  • Switchgear, electrical panels, bus way and cable tray systems
  • Lighting systems
  • Life safety/fire alarm systems
  • Industrial instrumentation and control
  • Power generators and control
  • Voice/data/video/fiber optic systems

Helping Prevent Problems, Outages & Arc Flash Injuries
On top of 24-hour Service response, Baker Group clients who have a Preventive Maintenance Agreement can also receive Electrical Service support as part of that agreement. “Our preventive maintenance focus is to do a walk-through of the facility using infrared thermography to detect any hot spots. We can then make repairs before a failure occurs,” Sullivan says.

Additionally, Electrical Service team members can assess arc flash risk and make sure equipment is properly labeled to help employees stay safe.
