Electrical, HVAC, and Plumbing for Government Buildings
Safety and comfort are just as important when maintaining and repairing electrical, HVAC, and plumbing for government buildings as any other commercial or residential structure. As with most commercial properties, there are special code requirements. Energy conservation is an option for some properties, but government buildings usually have specific needs for energy conservation.

Electrical Installation, Maintenance, and Repair for Government Buildings
For more secure data transmissions, the choice for government installations has historically been either shielded copper or fiber. Each solution has a range of options and supported applications. –SecurityToday
Electrical wiring for government buildings can include security systems. Today, security systems may be integrated with demanding electrical requirements, especially in government technology centers.
Bids during construction may have gone to the lowest bidder. Often, older government buildings don’t have the quality of electrical systems they should. This means electrical renovations may occur more often until replacement wiring is installed.
The National Electrical Code (NEC) specifies minimum acceptable wiring methods and materials for many states and municipalities in the U.S. Local governments adopt the NEC or a version of it.

HVAC for Government Buildings
Designing HVAC systems for government buildings covers a spread of occupancies that range from office spaces to laboratories, detention facilities, high-security areas, data centers, and military bases. –ES Magazine
HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) has taken on greater importance than ever because of our need for better IAQ (indoor air quality). Government buildings especially must be able to show diligence in providing air that is free from biological contaminants and allergens.
The State of Georgia has guidelines for government facilities. High LEED® ratings are an important consideration. LEED is the sustainable, earth-friendly building standard of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
We believe the preservation of Atlanta-area historical government buildings is important. These buildings are our history and also our legacy.
Safely updating HVAC with technological innovations (“smart” thermostats, electrical devices that “communicate,” etc.) requires an HVAC contractor who not only has experience but also has received HVAC continuing education.
For almost 50 years, our company has served the Atlanta area, including Alpharetta, Decatur, Duluth, Dunwoody, Fayetteville, Johns Creek, Marietta, Norcross, North Atlanta, Peachtree City, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Suwanee, and Woodstock.

Plumbing for Government Buildings
Public buildings are built to last. Unfortunately – depending on the era in which it was constructed – some government buildings have plumbing issues.
Sometimes the materials used were later found to be ineffective. Modern plumbing utilizes brass, copper, and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipes. But older buildings may have cast iron, lead, or galvanized steel plumbing pipes.
R.S. Andrews can evaluate a building’s overall health better than other plumbers because we are also certified electrical and HVAC professionals. We know how your systems work separately and together. That’s important in commercial plumbing.
