GEC’s staff is capable of design, development and preparation of detailed plans, technical specifications and engineering opinion of probable cost; and providing construction administration services, including shop drawing review, construction observation, project coordination, and report preparation. GEC’s Electrical Engineering Division is well-versed in the application and enforcement of the National Electrical Code, National Electrical Safety Code, and OSHA Electrical Regulations. In addition, we are very familiar with industry standard practices, recommended practices, and governing codes published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA)
GEC has an excellent record of performance on electrical professional engineering services contracts for various State, Local and Federal agencies. We maintain an excellent reputation with numerous clients, including the LADOTD, Greater New Orleans Expressway Commission, City of Slidell, City of Baton Rouge, MDOT, City of Kenner, City of New Orleans and City of Gulfport.
In order to properly relay the design information to potential contractors for installation, a clear and concise set of plans and specifications is required. GEC engineers and designers are well-versed in the preparation of plans and specifications meeting the specific requirements of the LADOTD. We create our design plans with all parties in mind, including those constructing and maintaining the system. Where required and available, standard plans and guidelines are utilized in the preparation of the construction documentation. Where no standards and/or guidelines are available, commonly used industry standard practices and procedures are implemented, and where feasible, are exceeded.
GEC’s engineers are well-versed in the practical application of project management principles and practices as defined within the standards of the Project Management Institute. As such, GEC will utilize and employ the Project Management Knowledge Areas within the Project Management Framework as defined by the Project Management Institute.
