Why You Need an Electrical Engineer and Its Expertise

How would you build a house without an architect’s blueprints?

The general contractor could assemble all of his subcontractors. The framers could gather some wood. The electricians might have some thoughts on how to wire the house. The drywall guys would know how to hang drywall and the roofers would know to order some tiles.

In theory, anyone could throw together plans for a house. An experienced general contractor knows what goes into building a house. Surely with all that collective expertise, they could wing it.

Without plans, though, none of their expertise matters. Before you build anything, you need plans drawn by a professional. Otherwise, you end up with a mish mash of raw materials, but most likely not a livable house.

Electrical engineers are the architects of all electrical projects. They’re the guys you turn to with questions about codes, standards, and regulations. Whether it’s a new building or a renovation, an electrical engineer will be able to draw up the plans for our technicians to follow.

The field of electrical engineering was born in the 1800s as industry began to boom. Over the last century and a half, it’s grown and morphed into several subdisciplines. Our electrical engineers are experts in local building codes and electrical solutions. They’re fully certified, and spend lots of time keeping up to date on new developments in the industry.

At Schaffhouser Electric Company, our electrical engineers are the best in Nashville and in Tennessee. They can advise on basic wiring and meeting codes. Or they can architect your whole control system for maximum efficiency at your plant or business. No matter the industry, though, just like an architect’s expertise is needing to build, an electrical engineer has to be involved to get the best quality electrical system.

We know that every project and business is unique. Even factories in the same industry have different challenges and obstacles. Our electrical engineers stay up to date on the latest and greatest methods and regulations. They’re experts in best practices, but they know that every project will have its own solutions.

Whether you’re building a new plant, updating an existing structure, or wanting to keep up to date on codes, our electrical engineers can help. Give us a call at 615-325-8001 to know more about our services.
