Commercial Electrical Contractor - Edmonton & Area
Commercial electrical services for our clients are similar to residential in some aspects because they use our electrical knowledge to collaborate and problem solve, but on a larger scale. Because there are many different components to consider and we are often communicating with other service industries, we work closely with our clients to realize their plans and stay within their timelines.
Our Journeyman Edmonton electricians have experience handling complex projects such as new building wiring to straightforward tenant improvement upgrades. Our client base for commercial electrical services includes but is not limited to:
- New business owners
- Commercial spaces
- Development projects
- Property Management companies
- Retail spaces and restaurants
Commercial Electrical Renovations
We provide everything from electrical demolitions to installing and upgrading electrical systems within commercial buildings. Commercial electrical spaces have a small time window to get improvements made and to move new tenants into these spaces. Thus, landlords need service providers to not only add necessary improvements, such as power upgrades, wiring from single to three-phase electrical service upgrades, or adding a dedicated circuit for such loads as a backup battery, for servers in the building.
We also add and remove receptacle plugs, switches, light fixtures, and electrical signs in buildings, provide service upgrades for larger buildings, such as panels from 200amps to 600amps and above, and install phone lines and internet lines to workstations as needed. We also do Electrical optimizations with electrical systems such as installing power moderating equipment to provide power consumption of buildings. Installing motion sensors and cameras in high-traffic areas and installing building management systems.
Commercial Electrical Lighting
As one of the leading electrical names in Edmonton and the surrounding areas, AddVal can design and provide lighting solutions for any commercial space. Our team of Journeyman electricians will upgrade the existing lighting scheme to a more modern system. Not only will this result in a more energy-efficient system, but one that is smarter too. Depending on the client’s needs, we can bring smart automation benefits, allowing automatic lighting changes, voice-activated light and sound systems, alarms and cameras, or even automatic door openers.
Smart lighting can improve the safety around your site, ensuring that health and safety issues are addressed while still allowing for energy savings. We often use Levven Controls and a CX controller panel system to accomplish all your electrical lighting installation needs.

Commercial Panel Upgrades
Sometimes the electrical usage of a site exceeds original expectations, and the panel needs to be upgraded to allow for this. We can upgrade your panels from 200 amps to 600 amps and beyond. Most new homes in the Edmonton area have 200amp services, and this is a minimum for any business location due to the increased energy needs. It is crucial to ensure your electrical panels remain fit for purpose, as without the appropriate wiring and breakers, the chances of an electrical failure, and even fire, grows. Upgrading the electrical panel also allows service to be extended into previously unpowered areas, such as garages and storage areas.
