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 Mount Pleasant:
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.

Tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer money could soon be used for future park projects in Mount Pleasant from November’s referendum that passed by 700 votes.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - Tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer money could soon be used for future park projects in Mount Pleasant from November’s referendum that passed by 700 votes.

A total of $50 million could be used for future projects in the town, and council are set to vote on the measure’s first reading.

The referendum increases property taxes for the next 15 years. The money will be used to build new ballfields, tennis courts and fix up old fields and facilities.

“When I coached, I coached for 37 years, I’d have to go over to Sullivan’s Island to play in that field next to the hill because there were no fields available for me to practice over here,” Councilmember Gary Santos said. “We needed to fix some of our facilities, our pools that are really old and dilapidated, so to speak, so and not only that, we have parents that have to take their kids over to North Charleston to play other Mount Pleasant teams, and that should not happen.”

Just off Rifle Range Road sits 145 acres of land the town currently uses as greenspace.

As part of this referendum, the town wants to turn 25% of the land into ballfields and tennis courts while keeping the rest as a wooded area.

However, not all locals want to see the land developed…

“For me, I find a lot of enjoyment in the woods, and there aren’t many spaces around Mount Pleasant that are like this protected patch of woodlands,” neighbor Amy Cyzman said.

Neighbor Daniel Brownstein said if the referendum didn’t pass, the park at Rifle Range may have never had enough money to start construction.

“I have two young kids, and they’re very involved in sports and the arts,” Brownstein said. “I really wanted to see this park come to fruition after all these years.”

Santos said the town hasn’t kept up with demand for parks and greenspace as the population nears 100,000.

He said they’re hoping to start construction on the planned park at Rifle Range in the coming months and already working on fixing some ballfields.

“It’s kind of a balance, and that’s what life is all about,” Santos said. “It’s about balance, and that’s what we’re doing now. We’re trying to put some balance in there, so everybody can have a little piece of something that they want.”

Leading plan for I-526 and Wando port traffic in Mount Pleasant adjusted after uproar

South Carolina’s initial plan to improve traffic on Interstate 526 and the Long Point Road interchange in Mount Pleasant was met with an outpouring of public opposition, and that’s prompting the state to make revisions.

The road work is critical for operations at South Carolina’s busiest port, the Wando Welch Terminal at the end of Long Point Road, and for traffic relief at the busy interchange.

The plan calls for new elevated ramps to and from the interstate dedicated to port trucks, and a version presented to the public in 2022 showed that building those ramps could require the demolition of two or three homes in the Tidal Walk subdivision. The subdivision sits along the north side of I-526.

Nearly 540 people submitted comments about those plans in the fall and 59 percent opposed the proposed elevated port ramps, while just half supported the S.C. Department of Transportation’s favored plan known as Alternative 2.

S.C. Department of Transportation Project Manager Joy Riley said the responses showed that people in residential communities north of the interstate were against the proposed elevated ramps and favored keeping port truck traffic on Long Point Road. Unsurprisingly, those living in communities between the highway interchange and the port favored the new ramps, which would remove truck traffic from Long Point Road.

The plans were revised following the survey results, and those changes were outlined at an invitation-only “stakeholders meeting” at the end of November, which included homeowner associations and business owners, plus elected officials and SC Ports representatives.

The revised plans still call for elevated truck ramps, but no longer impact Seacoast Parkway or homes in the Tidal Walk subdivision. Riley said DOT also feels “pretty confident” that an analysis will justify noise walls along the north side of I-526, addressing another concern among residents.

“Noise has always been the number one concern in our neighborhood, along with not wanting any neighbors to lose their houses,” said Grassy Creek resident Lee Lazarus, who has spoken at public meetings about the plans. “Supposedly we’re going to something like a 20-foot wall.”

Under state law, DOT would need Mount Pleasant’s consent for the project. Riley said the town’s approval would likely be sought after another round of public comments following a meeting planned in March, which could prompt more refinements to the plan.

Mayor Will Haynie said the recent revisions addressed the town’s main concerns.

“People were going to lose their homes, and we are very happy that we’re not going to see that,” he said. “Not that there’s no room for improvement — such as turns onto Belle Hall Parkway — but the parts affecting neighborhoods in a major way have been addressed.”

The Belle Hall Parkway issue involves the planned elimination of left turns from Long Point Road to the parkway, where a Waffle House restaurant is located.

That may sound like a small detail, but the parkway is the main entrance to the large subdivision. The elimination of left turns would mean that anyone coming from the interstate would need to drive past the subdivision’s main entrance, then turn on a different road and double back.

Riley said DOT is still looking at alternatives that would allow for left turns there, but so far has not resolved the issue.

The work at I-526 and Long Point Road would be a large road project on its own, but it’s just a small part of the roughly $7 billion Lowcountry Corridor plan to widen the interstate from West Ashley to Mount Pleasant and redesign the interchange of interstates 526 and 26 in North Charleston.

The I-526/Long Point Road project is being addressed in the early years of the larger project partly because traffic has overwhelmed the interchange, and port-related truck traffic regularly backs up on the interstate while trying to exit at Long Point Road.

“It’s a failing interchange because it just cannot process the number of people who are trying to turn left to get to Mount Pleasant, and you have trucks continuously clogging up the interchange as well,” Riley said.

And traffic is expected to increase significantly by 2050.

The next public hearing on the project is tentatively scheduled for March 14, though a time and location have not been announced. The recommended plan, potential impacts on properties, and an analysis of where noise barriers are warranted are among the information that should be presented then.

Until then, “we will be working diligently to assemble the environmental document and move through some critical Federal Highway reviews of our traffic analysis and designs,” Riley said. “All this must be approved before we hold the public hearing in March.”

The leading plan, Alternative 2, would require an estimated 28.5 acres of right of way involving 98 properties, some of which are home to businesses, but no houses. Construction work on the road plan is anticipated in the spring or summer of 2024 and to finish in 2027 or 2028.

Meanwhile, information about the project can be found online at 526lcclongpoint.com, the project team can be emailed at info@526LowcountryCorridor.com, or contacted by regular mail to the attention of Joy Riley, PO Box 191, 955 Park St., Columbia SC 29202-0191.

The South Carolina Supreme Court permanently blocked the state’s six-week abortion ban Thursday in a 3-2 ruling. The high court ruled the ban violated the state constitution’s right to privacy.

The ruling made national news, with The New York Times writing, it was “a major victory for abortion rights in the South, where the procedure is strictly limited.”

The justices based the majority decision on an explicit provision of the South Carolina constitution — something that the U.S. Constitution doesn’t have — that guarantees a personal right to privacy.

The Times added, “It is the first final ruling by a state Supreme Court on the state constitutionality of abortion since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, which ended the right to abortion under the federal constitution that had been in force for half a century, and left the matter to the states.”

Boaters rejoice — more parking is coming to one of the busiest boat landings in the East Cooper area. Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission is expanding parking for the Shem Creek Boat Landing with the purchase of the adjacent Simmons Street property.

The 0.53-acre two-lot property was purchased for $1.9 million from PSC, LLC and is expected to bring an additional 20 trailer spaces to the boat landing. At the boat landing, there is only one spot for a vehicle without trailers and 28 parking spaces for vehicles with boat trailers, including one ADA-accessible space.

“The purchase of this land is wonderful news for boat owners and any user of the Shem Creek Boat Landing, which is currently one of the county’s busiest boat landings,” said CCPRC Executive Director Kevin Bowie. “We were very pleased to have the opportunity to expand parking at this site to better serve the community.”

The Shem Creek Boat Landing is usually at capacity during favorable weather and peak seasons. When the lot is full, people will choose to launch their boat and then try to find parking for their vehicle in overflow parking at the Moultrie Plaza shopping center. This causes a backlog of other boaters waiting to launch their boat or come back in from the water. CCPRC is hopeful the additional parking will reduce wait times for boat launching and returning to the landing.

Patricia Newshutz, the director of planning and development for Charleston County Parks, said the extra parking will provide additional parking close to the landing, freeing up street parking for businesses in the area.

“The additional parking at the new site is an effort to replace parking that has been lost for the boaters. Also, the additional parking will provide an alternative to boaters parking on the street right-of-way. With additional parking close to the landing, the surrounding business and residents will be able to have street parking available for their customers and guests,” Newshutz said.

There is no anticipated completion date for the project at this time. The property will be rezoned, and planning and permitting, which can take upwards of a year, will happen soon after, Newshutz said.

The parking lot at the landing will undergo previously-scheduled accessibility and drainage improvements. Improvements will provide include reconstructing sidewalks, installing ADA ramps, reconstructing parking spaces and replacing storm grates that have large grids with ones that have smaller gaps to meet ADA standards.

“In addition, the parking lot will be repaved and new stormwater structures and storm drain lines will be installed to correct puddling, which causes potholes in the pavement. Also, a small bit of dredging under the floating dock will remove built-up sediment, which causes the dock to list at low tide,” Newshutz said.

The boat landing will be closed during the construction of the improvements, which are expected to begin the second week of January and continue until March 31, 2023.

Another large apartment development is coming to the Lowcountry, and a $30 million office project is planned for Mount Pleasant.

Aventon Companies recently broke ground on a 394-unit multifamily community on a 30-acre site on Bees Ferry Road near Savannah Highway. The property abuts Main Road and sits behind a 297-unit apartment development called Satori West Ashley that’s nearing completion next to Publix supermarket.

Aventon Bees Ferry is the Raleigh-based developer’s first foray into South Carolina.

One- to three-bedroom units will be outfitted with high-end finishes, details the developer said are normally found in luxury single-family homes.

The complex will include elevators, a pool, gaming lawn and clubhouse with areas for lounging, remote work and fitness. A pet spa and dog park also will be available.

Aventon Bees Ferry is expected to open in early 2024. Rental rates have not been disclosed.

“With Charleston consistently experiencing year-over-year employment growth while seeing its economy and tourism industry reach unparalleled heights, Aventon decided to launch our first project in South Carolina here,” said Ron Perera, senior managing director. “South Carolina is a key part of our regional growth plan.”

Last January, Aventon presented plans to the city of Charleston to build a 320-unit apartment community on a 20-acre site on Clements Ferry Road next to apparel maker Gildan’s distribution facility at Jack Primus Road. Work has not begun on the Berkeley County site, and a spokeswoman said the company declined to comment on the status of “active projects.”

Office space

A new $30 million office development is in the works for northern Mount Pleasant.

Wilmington, N.C.-based SAMM Properties plans to build three office structures of 26,400 square feet each on an undeveloped 6.78-acre parcel at U.S. Highway 17 and George Browder Boulevard between the Church at LifePark and REV Federal Credit Union. The future All American Boulevard makes up the western edge of the property.

The projected mix of uses includes 66,000 square feet for general office space and 13,200 square feet for medical purposes, according to plans presented to the town of Mount Pleasant. Nearly 340 parking spaces are planned.

The project must go through several levels of reviews, including the town’s Planning Commission on Jan. 18, but the developer hopes the project can be completed in 2024. SouthState Bank owns the land.

Market newcomer

A Virginia-based real estate firm is expanding to South Carolina.

Long & Foster Real Estate, a subsidiary of HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, now has an office at 201 Sigma Drive in the Nexton development near Summerville.

The company operates more than 200 offices along the East Coast from the Carolinas to New Jersey.

Lonnie Plaster, who’s lived in the area for more than a decade and worked with Long & Foster’s team for a longer period, will lead the Palmetto State expansion as senior vice president and regional manager.

He also currently oversees Long & Foster’s Agent Services Group, which provides marketing and transaction management support services to its real estate agents.
