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.
