Let’s Build a Culver’s!

August 28th, 2020 Comments off

The A-Team is excited to announce we were awarded the electrical contract for the new Culver’s of West Lafayette project! 

 

(L-R): John, Chad, Rob onsite working to get the conduit installed into the slab.

Large commercial construction projects such as this are commonly fast paced and the A-Team is up for the challenge! The current deadline for this project to be turned over is Thanksgiving. Did you know this will be the first Culver’s in the country to have a dual drive-through?

 

Here’s a look at the A-Team (L-R: John, Chad, Rob) installing the electrical conduits into the slab rough-in on this project. Take a look at Chad digging into the slab to run our conduit. These conduits are tubes that will protect and route the installed electrical wiring in the building. These tubes are placed into the slab prior to concrete being poured onto the foundation of the building. These pipes are then ran to a main distribution panel. Culver’s will have two breaker boxes placed above these conduits, this process is known as branch circuit equipment. A branch circuit is defined as that part of an electric circuit extending beyond the last circuit breaker or fuse. The branch circuits start at the breaker box and extend to the electrical devices connected to the service. Branch circuits are the last part of the circuit supplying electrical devices.

 

Installed conduit with Jetline Pull Line

Just how many electrical conduits go in the slab at a Culver’s you ask? About this many.

Large commercial construction projects require a sizable amount of conduits to be placed into the slab. Take a look at just how many conduits need to be installed! Above these conduits is where the two breaker boxes will be installed as explained above. This picture is prior to any wiring being pulled into the conduits. You can see string coming out of each of the conduits. This string is called Jetline String or a Jetline Pull Line which is a heavy duty Nylon rope blown, shot, or snaked into conduit to pull wire or a bigger pull line.

 

Can Lights Installed

This week the A-Team has begun installing the can lights to the outside of Culver’s.

Can lights, also referred to as recessed lights, are light fixtures that are installed into a hollow opening in a ceiling, concentrating the light in a downward direction as a broad floodlight or narrow spot light. Can lights are recessed lights that get their nickname from their housings, which are cylindrical, metal, and pretty much can-like. Can lighting is nearly flush with the ceiling and do not take up visual space.

 

This is just the beginning!

The A-Team will continue to keep you updated as we work through this large project. Please check us out on our Facebook page to stay up to date progress on this project!
