Henderson Building Solutions Construction Manager Jeremy Giese was featured on a critical power systems panel of subject matter experts sharing best practices as part of CFE Media & Technology’s Virtual Training Week. The roundtable covered design of backup, standby, and emergency power systems in nonresidential buildings, which requires many considerations beyond NFPA 70: National Electrical Code. CFE Media includes Consulting-Specifying Engineer, Control Engineering, Oil & Gas Engineering, and Plant Engineering.
Other topics included codes and standards that define the design of critical power systems, identifying important qualities and characteristics of generators for mission critical facilities beyond the standard National Electrical Code and building standards, best practices for specifying power systems, and how to identify commonly seen specification errors or omissions. The group reviewed and compared various design topologies and solutions often seen implemented for mission critical facilities.
Complex projects are Giese’s specialty and his favorite part of the job as a construction manager. Giese is a master electrician and holds a Class A Builders license to go along with more than two decades of construction industry experience managing design and construction of turnkey electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems.
