Don't Make Electrical Rooms an Afterthought: James Lessard to Present at CFE Media's Virtual Training Event

Our electrical engineering firm discipline leader, James Lessard, PE, will be co-hosting a presentation about the importance of electrical systems and rooms as part of CFE Media’s virtual training event. The presentation takes place on Thursday, July 29.

Here is a short excerpt:

Electrical rooms and mechanical, electrical and plumbing spaces are often an afterthought when it comes to building design and planning. This shortsightedness can have unfortunate consequences on the cost, operations and flexibility of future electrical systems.

However, good engineering practices will often go beyond code in accommodating enhanced operation and maintenance of electrical equipment within the room. In addition, the NEC does not cover the many important considerations in coordinating with architectural, structural, HVAC or fire protection disciplines. This session will provide that detail.
