If you’re about to begin construction of a new building or plan to upgrade your existing company’s building, it is vital to plan for the future.

There are several aspects of successful business plans that incorporate “future-proofing,” like planning for future financial growth or new product development. But for our purposes, we’ll focus on the significance of a well-planned electrical design.

This is because commercial electric providers who are equipped to plan for rapidly advancing technologies have the ability to affect many aspects of your company’s future growth and success. Contractors who allow for future flexibility in their electrical planning, such as allowing for increased data loads, will complete the job while always keeping an eye toward the future.

Factoring adequate electrical infrastructure into your expansion plans is a must, because many of the technologies you’ll rely on to achieve them won’t be feasible otherwise.

There are a number of methods for designing an electrical system with built-in flexibility. While some concepts could raise the overall cost, huge returns can be realized if contractors like Gary Houston Electric Company prevent the need for new electrical expenditures later.

This is typically achieved by a lot of planning and forethought, which greatly improves design flexibility. For example:

1 Quality electricians typically leave space for future panel loads. Filling electrical panels during the wiring process allows no additional loads in the future without adding new panels.

2 In fact, having full panels requires adding new panels in order to add any further loads.

3 Plans that fill the electrical panels result in the need to add new panels to accommodate increased future loads.

4 Adding those panels typically causes more disruption and higher costs during a facility’s future renovations and/or additions.
