New Construction Electrical Considerations

There are a number of things to consider when planning the electrical components for a construction project. Some of them are obvious, others not as much. It’s important to establish a thorough plan ahead of time as unexpected changes can cause major delays down the line. Here are a few of the key things to consider.

Installing overhead lighting before finalizing construction will save you money and time. Be sure to consider where you want overhead lighting, so you won’t have to open walls or ceilings in the future. Picking fixtures, plates, covers, and appliances ahead of time will help make the final wiring step run smoothly.

Frequent Questions About Electrical Construction

What is electrical construction?

Whether a residential home or a luxury high-rise condominium, every new construction project needs to be connected to the power grid and wired for electricity. Electrical construction involves all the work an electrical contractor performs during the construction process. This can include everything from property planning, electrical system design, product selection, material selection, permitting, installation, and more.

How Do You Run Electricity in New Construction?

Running electricity in a new construction project typically involves installing a service panel and connecting it to the outdoor or underground connection line. Next, we’ll run cables from the breaker box throughout the building to reach all necessary areas. After the drywall goes up, we add the finishing touches, like outlet plates and light switches.

What Is Usually Involved In Electrical Work For New Construction?

Most new construction electrical services include installing HVAC units, lighting, fans, outlets, backup generators, emergency lighting and communications, and building automation systems. While not every project will require all of these services, most commercial and industrial electrical projects will. If you’re considering a new construction project, or have already started and are looking for an experienced electrical contractor to subcontract, we can help. Our team can handle all of your electrical needs from design and permitting to installation and inspection. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

What percentage of construction cost is electrical?

Every new construction project is different and will have different electrical requirements. The electrical costs to wire a small office with basic electrical systems would be much lower than the costs to wire a server data center. On average, the electrical costs should range between 7.5% to 10% of the total construction costs; however, this can easily fluctuate based on the project requirements.
