A few of our most popular commercial and industrial electrical services include but are not limited to:

Circuit Breakers

Tripped Circuit Breakers

Your businesses' electrical system will trip when it has too much electricity running through it. These problems are very common in commercial properties and usually stem from one of three culprits: circuit overloads, short circuits, and ground fault surges. Obviously, when your circuits are tripped regularly, your business operations suffer. To help solve your circuit breaker problems, our commercial electricians will come to your location for in-depth troubleshooting. Once we discover the root cause, we'll get to work on repairing your circuit breaker, so you can continue working and serving your customers.

Flickering Lights

Flickering Lights

Like tripped circuit breakers, dimming or flickering lights are among the most common commercial electrical problems in South Carolina. These issues typically stem from poor electrical connections. These poor connections will usually cause sparks, which can start fires and wreak havoc on your commercial building. While dimming lights might seem minor, if you leave this problem to fester, you could be looking at permanent damage to your businesses' electrical systems. Given the danger involved in fixing this problem, it's important that you work with a licensed business electrician like Engineered Electrical Solutions as soon as you're able to.

Dead Power Outlets

Dead Power Outlets

Dead power outlets aren't always dangerous, unlike other recurring commercial electrical issues. They are, however, disruptive to your company's productivity. Dead outlets are common in older commercial buildings and are often caused by circuit overloads. Connecting multiple high-wattage devices and appliances to the same power socket can cause overheating. When the power outlet overheats, it can lead to tripped circuit breakers. In some cases, the live wire catches fire and burns until it is disconnected. For a reliable solution using high-quality switches, sockets, and circuit breakers, it's best to hire a professional business electrician to get the job done right.

Residential Electrician vs. Commercial Electrician in Charleston:
What's the Difference?

Finding a real-deal, qualified commercial electrician in South Carolina is harder than you might think. Whether it's due to availability or budget, you might be tempted to hire a residential electrician for your commercial electrical problem. While it's true that great residential electricians can help solve commercial issues in theory, it's always best to hire a business electrician with professional experience.

Unlike their residential colleagues, commercial electricians are licensed to deal with different materials and procedures suited specifically for businesses. Commercial wiring is much more complex than residential, and is strategically installed with maintenance, repair, and changes in mind. Additionally, commercial properties usually use a three-phase power supply, necessitating more schooling, skills, and technical ability to service.

The bottom line? If you're a business owner with commercial electricity problems, it's best to work with a licensed commercial electrician, like you will find at Engineered Electrical Solutions.

North Charleston to sell old City Hall building to Roper for hospital relocation

NORTH CHARLESTON — The city of North Charleston plans to sell its old City Hall building to Roper St. Francis Healthcare for around $10 million, a final step needed for the company to relocate its downtown hospital to the state’s third-largest municipality, sources close to the negotiations told The Post and Courier.

North Charleston will hold a Finance Committee meeting at 5 p.m. Nov. 15 at the current City Hall on Mall Drive, where City Council members are expected to vote in favor of the decision to sell to Roper Hospital the city’s former municipal building, located nearby at 4900 Lacross Road, the sources confirmed.

The full City Council will meet following the committee meeting to finalize the sale.

Roper is expected to make a formal announcement at 10 a.m. Nov. 16 across the street at the old Verizon Wireless call center, which Roper purchased in April, about its plans to build a hospital in North Charleston, sources confirmed.

This major development comes a year after Roper announced that it would relocate its flagship site from downtown Charleston after having provided medical services to patients on the peninsula for more than 165 years. Roper said at the time it had to move its Calhoun Street building because it needs an operation that can better handle flooding, hurricanes and earthquakes.

Roper’s downtown building is located in the flood-prone medical district on Calhoun Street between Jonathan Lucas Street and Courtenay Drive, an area that has repeatedly seen tidal events and heavy rainstorms. Additionally, Charleston is also located near a major East Coast fault line, though it has not been hit with a significant earthquake in more than 100 years.

Roper has purchased several properties near the old North Charleston City Hall building, fueling speculation about the hospital’s new home. In April, Roper bought the old Verizon call center for $22 million and an old corporate office building on Lacross Road for $5.5 million. In May, the hospital bought two more lots off Lacross Road for $13 million a piece.

In 2009, North Charleston’s government moved to a new City Hall just across Mall Drive from its old site. The city maintained ownership of the old building, leasing it tenants. Most recently, the space was occupied by Amazon.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

After getting to the NCAA Tournament and winning in the first round, the Richmond Spiders’ journey to return to the Big Dance continues on the road against the College of Charleston Cougars on Monday (7 p.m. ET).

Richmond has top scorer Tyler Burton back from last season, but he is the only one out of the Spiders’ top five scorers who has returned.

Charleston has gone with the-whole-is-greater-than-the-sum-of-the-parts approach, playing a 10-man rotation with nine getting at least 15 minutes in both games the Cougars have played this season.

A big reason Charleston uses so many players is the team’s uptempo style. It ranks third among Division I teams in possessions per game since Pat Kelsey took over as coach prior to last season.

This should irritate a Richmond team that has played slowly with a new backcourt, ranking 317th in possessions per game of the 355 Division I teams that have played another Division I opponent.

With Richmond in transition and Charleston coming off a game against North Carolina in which they led the No. 1 team in the country in the second half, the Spiders will get smushed on Monday.

The Play: Charleston +3 vs. Richmond

Pisco Mar brings Peruvian food to Charleston

Chef Esteban Diaz opened an authentic Peruvian restaurant, Pisco Mar, in Port of Call Food & Brew Hall downtown Nov. 11 to offer an intimate dining experience.

Diaz grew up in Chiclayo, Peru, a small coastal town about 500 miles north of Lima. He spent his childhood in the kitchen with his mother and grandmother before formally studying Peruvian cuisine when he was 22. Soon after, he opened his own restaurant in Chiclayo. It was a successful bar and lounge-style restaurant for 14 years until Peru’s strict Covid-19 regulations left him with no choice but to shut it down.

Port of Call owners Ryan Kaufmann and Thomas Berry met Diaz during a trip to Peru.

“[Our friends] kept stressing how many Peruvians were in Charleston and [they] found it mind-boggling that there was no authentic Peruvian cuisine [here],” Kaufmann said. “So they kept bringing it up to us and educating us on what real Peruvian cuisine is.”

Kaufmann and Berry immersed themselves in the flavors of the region when friends arranged a culinary tour for them in Lima earlier this year and connected them with Diaz. The chef led Kaufmann and Berry on a whirlwind culinary journey, introducing them to as much Peruvian food as possible, dining at five restaurants per day, Kaufmann said.

The tour showcased Diaz’s vision and passion for Peruvian cuisine so the pair sealed the deal on the partnership, and the chef promptly packed his bags to move to the U.S.

“I grew up in a beautiful country with cultural diversity, and it inspired me to do the best for my family and people I love — all the people I left in my country,” Diaz said. “Now I’m a representative of Peru and I want to show the people of Charleston how delicious Peruvian food is.”

When you dine at Pisco Mar, Diaz wants you to feel as if you are eating in his home, he said.

Pisco Mar will showcase the diversity of Peruvian cuisine with a prix fixe eight-course menu. The opening menu may be subject to change, Diaz said, but when he spoke to the City Paper, the first course was slated to be a stuffed avocado dish called palta rellena.

Ceviche, the national dish of Peru, will be a staple menu item. Traditional ceviche is raw fish “cooked” in lime juice, but Diaz said Pisco Mar’s rendition may feature shrimp for a Lowcountry twist.

Another raw fish dish on the menu is tiraditos, a thinly sliced fish coated in an aji amarillo sauce. Aji amarillo is a yellow chili pepper native to Peru and has a slightly fruity flavor that balances the heat.

Skewered, marinated beef hearts called anticuchos will be on the menu. Diaz said he and Kaufmann went to great lengths to source this Peruvian ingredient.

Kaufmann said, “I know Charleston really weighs heavily on eating local, but with this concept, we have gone extremely out of our way to procure all of these items from Peru. For example, all the different variations of peppers and a few other items are not available in Charleston. We want you to feel like you’ve stepped out of the Lowcountry and into Peru for the evening.”

As the menu progresses to heartier dishes, diners will likely encounter arroz con pato, an oven-roasted duck leg quarter on a bed of seasoned rice, or “causa”, which literally translates to casserole, but not the kind you’re picturing.

“Usually a casserole dish is hot,” Kaufmann said, “but this is actually a cold potato dish that’s shaped with a mold and served in a tower, often with layers of avocado, tomato and a protein filling of crab, shrimp or chicken.” Imagine a perfectly cylindrical tuna tower at a seafood restaurant rather than your mom’s green bean casserole.

The dessert course features suspiro a la lemiña, a deep caramel pudding topped with Port-flavored meringue and a sprinkle of cinnamon. But if you prefer a liquid dessert, Pisco Mar will have plenty of Peruvian cocktails to wash down this decadent meal. A lot of Diaz’s input went into the cocktail menu to ensure authenticity.

A majority of the cocktails feature pisco, a spirit distilled from wine or fermented fruit juice with notes of grape and is slightly herbal and earthy.

The Pisco Sour, which is made with lime juice, egg whites and simple syrup, is the national drink of Peru, according to Diaz. The Market Street restaurant will serve a classic version as well as a Maracuya Sour with passionfruit.

The real finale, however, is a musical performance by Diaz, who used to be in a rock band in Peru. When the last course is served, the chef will trade his kitchen tools for an acoustic guitar and play traditional Peruvian music to close out an unforgettable experience.

Charleston County Parks accepting bids for planned 67-acre park in West Ashley

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston County parks is looking to spend millions of dollars on a new park in West Ashley near Charles Towne Landing.

Behind a gate off Old Towne Road sits 67 acres of land called Old Towne Creek County Park, the majority of which is protected for conservation. The county wants to add features to the land and open it up for the public to use.

“As you look around, you see different pockets of where the sun is shining through, and people will be able to peer into different spaces and different windows into the landscape,” Charleston County Parks Senior Planner Matt Moldenhauer said. “Obviously, we’re on a peninsula surrounded by Old Towne Creek, which is spectacular, and so people really get to appreciate all we have here.”

The county is accepting construction bids for the planned park. Moldenhauer said they want to add a one mile, Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible walking trail, build a park center with restrooms and a pavilion as well as create separate entrances for vehicles and pedestrians.

There are three historic structures on the property. The county plans to fix up the outside of two homes built in the 1910s, but people will not be able to go inside.

“That [conservation] easement not only protects the landscape of most of the property but also two of the structures, which were built in the early 1900s,” Moldenhauer said.

Officials also hope to add a playground and an elevated overlook of the creek, but it depends on the bids they get back from contractors.

Moldenhauer said the park has been in the works since the county bought the property just over 10 years ago. The property had been privately owned up until then.

Neighbors said they are excited about it potentially opening, since the site is only open for certain events, such as Wine Down Wednesdays, which will be cancelled until renovations are complete.

“We have to keep our eyes open where it’s available for us to go,” neighbor Noel Beatty said. “We’ll frequent it more if it’s made more available to the general public.”

Moldenhauer said these improvements are part of phase one of the park. There is no timetable for a second phase at this time.

Officials hope to start construction early next year and have it open to the public in 2025.

“We hope that when they come out here, we’ve really done our best to take a very light touch on this already immaculate landscape,” Moldenhauer said.

The county will be holding a meeting Wednesday at 10 a.m. for contractors to visit the site and come up with quotes for potential bids.
