Laser Spine Institute

Schaeffer Electric recently completed the Laser Spine Institute in Creve Coeur, Missouri.  This fast paced project was performed in partnership with Precise Construction.  With the goal of renovating an existing 30,000 square foot space from an existing medical office to a surgical center in 6 months, close coordination and teamwork were imperative.  By the completion of the project, 3 operating room suites, 28 PACU/exam rooms, an MRI, and a Radiology room were ready for use, not to mention the required offices, waiting rooms, and lounge.  From an electrical point of view, the project consisted of completely new lighting, receptacles, fire alarm, normal power distribution, nurse call, voice/data and an emergency distribution system that consisted of 7 transfer switches and a 500 KW generator .  Congratulations to the entire team for a successful project and to the Laser Spine Institute on their beautifully renovated building.

World Chess Hall of Fame

Thanks to R.G. Ross for allowing us to participate in this unique opportunity to bring the World Chess Hall of Fame from Miami to St. Louis.  This project consisted of a complete rehab of the all three floors in the existing building.  Like many of the historical rehabs in St. Louis, the goal was to retain the character of the building while bringing it into the 21st Century.  Schaeffer was responsible for all power, lighting, and fire alarm on the project.
