Contributed ongoing facilities electrical design services, managing up to five projects / work orders
concurrently covering a wide range of critical needs: electronic security, automated HVAC and lighting,
telephone and computer data cabling, heavy equipment support, in secure and non-secure areas. A
typical project procedure consisted of meeting with the internal job requester, surveying, specifying
equipment, cable layouts, wiring schematics, composing sequence of operation, equipment procurement,
cost estimation, and communication with maintenance electricians or outside contractors for finalization.
Coordination with other departments was frequently necessary. Regularly teamed with Structural,
Mechanical, and Industrial Engineers on major capital renovation projects. This required reading
construction drawings of all disciplines. At project completion, site walk-throughs were performed to verify
installation completion and accuracy. Assured management that emergency and safety systems
maintained functionality. Constant awareness of codes and standards such as the NEC, ADA, ISO,
EH&S, and OSHA. Regularly attended classes and seminars for code updates and other topics.
Consistently worked with outside vendors to learn new product technologies. Over 15 years of drawing
