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.
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 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.
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.

LADSON, S.C. (WCBD) – A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Monday morning for a new state-of-the-art mental health hospital in the Lowcountry.
Live Oak Mental Health and Wellness – a 60-bed, free-standing $47.5 million hospital – is designed to provide inpatient and outpatient care.
Trident Health said the facility is located about a mile away from Trident Medical Center and that it was designed with patients in mind.
The hospital includes large outdoor courtyards, and a variety of spaces to offer therapy in both individual and group settings.
Providers say that in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties, nearly 5% of all admissions at hospitals are mental health related. But the demand for high-quality behavioral health services has been greater than the region’s ability to meet those needs.
Because of that, those behind the project say that after a decade of planning, it’s wonderful to see the facility completed.
“To see all of the parts come together into the form of the whole, a sum that is greater than all of the individual parts, it’s a product of many contributions by individuals. That is what it is all about, I get to surround myself with wonderful caregivers, support team members all in the interest of delivering the best care to patients in the community,” said David Was, chief operating officer for Live Oak Mental Health and Wellness.
Patients will be accepted at the facility beginning Tuesday.

CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - More than six months after a woman was crushed to death at a Ladson business, officials with the South Carolina Occupation Safety and Health Administration have shared their investigative findings on what they believe the business failed to do.
Jessica Birkmire, 53, died at Pegasus Steel in Ladson on Jan. 12 after a large, steel door closed on her, crushing her arm and head, according to the Charleston County Coroner.
OSHA’s investigative report says Birkmire was preparing to unload materials at a large bay door when she reached through a small gap to click the ‘open’ button. She instead clicked the ‘close’ button, and the door shut on Birkmire.
OSHA details how Pegasus Steel did not conduct a ‘job hazard analysis,’ and despite making references to these job inspections, they provided no documentation to prove these risk assessments had been completed.
They say their inspection revealed conditions they believe to be in violation of state health and safety laws, specifically Code 41-15-210, which states “each employer shall furnish to his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.”
The report states this is a ‘serious’ violation.
OSHA’s report goes on to say there is, however, a memo from management sent out last summer that explains how employees were not authorized to walk through the bay doors, according to the report. During investigative interviews, OSHA found employees were routinely walking through these doors, and the report states no disciplinary action was taken.
The Chief Human Resources Officer for Pegasus Steel said in an interview with OSHA officials that Birkmire broke safety codes at the business when she reached through the bay door. The report also details how Birkmire was “headstrong” and that management had told her in the past to “not place her body in places that can hurt her.”
OSHA says the company also should have had sensors in place to detect objects in the door’s path.
OSHA provided Pegasus Steel with tips on how to keep the door from closing on people again including installing sensors. The business is also now ordered to pay a penalty of $3,500.
Officials said in the report they’re currently working on relocating those control buttons that Birkmire pushed. The business did not respond to a request for comment.

An Atlanta-based chicken sandwich chain is looking to expand its footprint throughout the growing Charleston region.
Chick-fil-A plans to build two new locations across the Lowcountry in addition to one under development at Charleston International Airport.
The company is eyeing sites in West Ashley and Ladson for new restaurants.
Site plans presented to the city of Charleston show the new dining venue on a 2.1-acre corner site at 1000 Floyd Drive near Walmart at West Ashley Circle and Bees Ferry Road. The property is owned by TTS Richmond Exchange Coordinator LLC of Knoxville, Tenn., which bought the site in 2022 for $2.5 million, according to Charleston County land records.
The West Ashley restaurant would be less than 4 miles west of an existing Chick-fil-A on Magwood Road that underwent an upgrade in 2019.
In Ladson, a new restaurant is planned on an undeveloped 4-acre site on Ladson Road, according to plans filed with state environmental regulators.
The family-owned property is in an unincorporated area of Dorchester County, across the street from a Bojangles’ chicken restaurant. The proposed entrance and exit will align with the north end of Palmetto Commerce Parkway, according to site plans.
At the airport, Chick fil-A is expected to begin serving customers in September or October, according to spokesman Spencer Pryor.

Boat business wants to use site temporarily until property owner’s redevelopment plans get underway
Captains Choice Yachting of Lockwood Drive has struck a short-term lease deal with Coleman Holdings, owner of the site of a former wrecker service at 415 W. Coleman Blvd., to sell and store boats temporarily as plans to redevelop the site wind their way through the government approval process.
The idea needs the approval from the town’s Board of Zoning Appeals, which will take up the request for a special exception to allow outdoor storage and display of boats Oct. 30.
The site sits between Vicious Biscuit restaurant and Peach Orchard Plaza, where the property owner has long-term plans to redevelop the property. The boat business plans to move out when the development project gets underway.
Captains Choice plans to clean up what it calls “property in a state of dilapidation” with an unauthorized construction dump site in the rear to display high-end boats on trailers behind a fence, where viewing will be by appointment only.
The boat business is offering to demolish the building near the street and an old three-bay shop in the rear, clean up the overgrown site and keep a covered open-air structure.
No tree removal is involved and a fence is proposed around the property’s perimeter. The proposed entrance to the site is through a gate that will be set back 75 feet from the road. It also will allow room for parking and maneuvering boats off and off the site.
Captains Choice manages private motor yachts and sells Albury Brothers boats. It also brokers high-end tailorable boats for its clients.
A new mixed-used development is planned on 30 acres on the Cainhoy peninsula, not far from Interstate 526.
Property owner Cato Ad Holdings LLC of Charlotte wants to subdivide eight lots and add two private rights-of-way on 30 acres at 2620 Clements Ferry Road for a commercial development called Towne at Cooper River.
The Berkeley County site is zoned for general commercial use in the city of Charleston. It sits along Enterprise Boulevard adjacent to Klister Lane and across from the entrance to Beresford Run subdivision. Cooper River Farms Apartments are behind the wooded parcel.
The developer wants to build multifamily units, medical offices and retail on the site.
Two new commercial buildings soon will be available in a developing master-planned community in the Charleston area.
A retail building and separate office structure will be completed in November in Brighton Court at 318 and 320 Brighton Park Boulevard in Nexton near Summerville.
The two 7,000-square-foot structures each feature suites up to 1,260 square feet with a courtyard between them.
One of the 12 sites has been leased by fitness firm Stretch Zone. The others remain available.
The two additions will join the development’s first building, which was completed in January 2021 and is occupied by Coastal Fertility Specialists and Summerville Women’s Care.

A 336-unit multifamily housing complex in Ladson called Broadstone Ingleside sold for $77.5 million, according to Cushman & Wakefield, a commercial real estate services firm that arranged the deal.

Broadstone Ingleside is a desirable property because it is positioned in a rapidly expanding North Charleston submarket just off Interstate 26, located near several big-name corporations, the news release said.

A 3-year-old vanished from an apartment complex before being found at the bottom of a retention pond, South Carolina officials said.
The toddler was pulled from the water with “no signs of life” and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Dorchester County sheriff’s and coroner’s offices.
The child was identified in a news release as John Tyheem Williams Jr.
Deputies said they responded to a report of a missing toddler at about noon on Friday, Sept. 8. The child was last seen at an apartment complex in the Ladson area, roughly 20 miles northwest of Charleston.
A deputy reported that someone found an iPod in a retention pond that might have belonged to the 3-year-old. Then, the sheriff’s office started working with other agencies to search the water for the missing child, according to an incident report.
At about 1 p.m., a diver found the child “approximately 15-20 feet from the bank in about 10-12 feet of water.” The toddler’s body was taken to the coroner’s office, where an autopsy was scheduled, according to officials.
Deputies in a Sept. 8 email said they were investigating the child’s apparent drowning death along with the coroner’s office and the S.C. Law Enforcement Division.
At least 4,000 people die from drowning every year in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and drowning is a leading cause of death for children.
Some factors can make drowning more likely, including not knowing how to swim, a lack of close supervision, not wearing a life jacket and drinking alcohol while recreating near or in water.
The National Drowning Prevention Alliance said there are tips to help keep you safe in the water, including checking local weather conditions, never swimming alone and choosing the right equipment.
“Don’t hesitate to get out of the water if something doesn’t feel right,” the group said on its website. “Whether it’s that the current is getting rough, rain has started to fall, or your body is just not responding like you would like it to due to fatigue or muscle cramps, then just leave and return to the water another day. It’s always a good thing to trust your instincts.”
