LEC is in the E-House Business!

LEC is in the E-house business!

We are happy t o announce that Leman Engineering and Consulting is now in the E-house business!

What is an E-house?  “E-house” is shorthand lingo for an Electrical House / Power House.  This is a pre-fabricated, outdoor building with low voltage or medium voltage switchgear installed inside.  LEC E-houses are built on a structural steel base with formed steel walls and roof.  Our E-houses feature HVAC, floor, wall and ceiling insulation and other great features to make these buildings very friendly in an otherwise hostile environment.

When is an E-house especially useful?  In remote locations where it is less practical to bring in construction crews.  Or, when you want to minimize on-site prep work.  You can literally run screw piles into the ground, use a laser transit to cut the piles level, set the E-house on top of the piles, weld and voila!  You’re ready to go!

Here at LEC we use an excellent E-house supplier to provide us the empty buildings.  We lovingly install our top-notch LEC switchgear into the E-house.  We do all the electrical work inside to complete the building.  We can bring in UL/CSA inspectors as necessary to label the finished product.  And off it goes to the job site!
