This Week In Review – 7/29/17

Last week we spent a few days doing a custom lighting job for Hat Creek Burgers in Lakeway, TX.  When we arrived they had already concreted in and installed poles around a playground.  They wanted us to get power to each of the poles and fabricate attaching goose-neck sconces to the poles to light up the playground.

We got there at 5:30am so we could try to get the drive-through done before customers came around.  We also wanted to plug the lights in to an extension cord and lift them up so we could see what kind of light they shed over the area.  We picked 15ft for our height and began drilling holes in the tops and bottoms of the poles to fish wire through.  We welded collars on the poles to mount the fixtures to then welded 4″ x 4″ junction boxes to the bottoms of the poles. After everything was welded up we began installing flexible conduit on the fence and between each fixture.  Once all of the poles were wired together we terminated everything and hooked them into an existing light fixture.

To do all of this work required that we blocked off the playground for a day.  Unfortunately the kiddos were not able to continue playing on the playground with all the tools and materials we had laying out.  We ended up taping off the area so nobody could get in.  All said and done however, the poles look amazing.  Now they just need to be painted so the silver poles match the black fixtures.

LiveWire Electrical – This Week In Review – 7/15/17

This one is getting out there a little late guys and gals, sorry. By the time you see this, it will technically be “LAST WEEK.” We’ve been stupid busy the past two weeks so I haven’t gotten as much filming done as I have putting out “fires” (not literal fires) and working.

This week we had an emergency call to a local restaurant that had a 225a 3-phase main tripping. We were out there at 4am and found the breaker had an extremely hot B-phase on the load side of the main. Everything amp’d out normal, but there was something on the inside of that breaker that was causing it to nuisance trip via that B-phase. We were able to get another main and install it that morning and fix the problem.

We also got to put in an entire track light system in the showroom of Austin Designer Kitchens to showcase their kitchens. There were 10 track lights added to their grid ceiling, as well as 7 receptacles they needed dropped throughout the store. Track lighting is a pain to deal with sometimes but it really changed the look of the showroom dramatically.

Last job we had was changing out whips from 4 RTU disconnects on 2 rooftops in a business park. Somebody had run 10/2 from the disconnects to the 50amp units and it was causing nuisance tripping in the winter when the heat kicked on.

Thanks For Watching!

LiveWire Electrical – This Week In Review – 7/1/17

Here’s some clips of some of the jobs we were on this week.  I’m trying to record more often so I can put together some videos of us out in the field.  I’d like to show everyone the type of work we’ve been getting and how we do what we do.

We’re an Austin, Tx based Electrical Contractor that specializes in troubleshooting and problem solving.  We offer 24-hour emergency service.  We do much more than that, but service work is really what we enjoy and excel at.

We also do a ton of remodels, tenant finish-outs, commercial new construction, residential new construction, solar, EV charging stations, and additions.

LiveWire Electrical Services is an electrical contracting company based in Cedar Park, Tx that serves the greater Austin area.  We specialize in troubleshooting, diagnostics, and solving problems.  We also do remodels, additions, new construction, residential, and commercial but our passion lies in being detectives.

We place a lot of importance on aesthetics and we care about the work we do.  We do this because we love doing it, not just for a paycheck.  We’re passionate about the science behind electricity and the logic in which circuitry is strung together.
