Our experience with contract maintenance has given us the expertise to help reduce your annual cost without sacrificing safety or quality.Now is the time to institute an outside maintenance contract. Be proactive and avoid the shortage of skilled workers we will experience in the near future. If structured to your facility and your specific needs, Maintenance Contracts can be a huge benefit to your company. Many of today’s maintenance personnel have to be “jack-of-all-trades”. These employees have some knowledge relating to many different fields, unfortunately, in depth knowledge in any one field is lacking. With a Maintenance Contract you get professional trained individuals working in their chosen field. Each year Managers set down and try to systematically decide operating budgets for their respective departments. This is a painstaking task that usually takes valuable time. When the budgets are reviewed by upper management, the managers, more times than not, find the submitted budget squeezed by other company needs. In addition to managers having to deal with budget deficits and shortfalls, employee loyalty seems to be at an all time low. There are many reasons for the loyalty issue (on both sides), too many to be discussed in this article, probably excellent fodder for an upcoming article. Bottom line is, upper management is constantly striving to reduce labor costs and increase the bottom line. On the other side of the coin, employees are constantly leaving for “greener pastures” which leads to additional stress on the budget due to increased costs for training, efficiency problems and just plain ramping up for the job at hand. Is there an alternative solution available that will help deter the problems I have outlined above? There is and it’s something most managers are familiar with—Subcontracting. It’s no secret that the workforce will see a void of experienced skilled workers over the next ten years. This will be created by the retirement of the baby-boomers. Some Human Resource Directors surveyed said they view this as a potential problem; some viewed it as more than just a problem. Subcontracting may be a logical step to avoid some of the holes that may develop in your organization. Let me introduce you to something called a Maintenance Contract. I believe they are a viable option to hiring and training new maintenance personnel. Your company can expect to save on training costs, tool costs, health & welfare costs, 401K reimbursements, possible workers compensation claims, sick & vacation leave and retirement benefits. Not to mention what may be saved on payroll because you will pay only for work that is needed, not to keep someone on staff to be used when needed. The transition to subcontracted help can be accomplished slowly through the process of employee attrition, retirements etc. If you decide to explore the option of Maintenance Contracts there are three things to consider, (1) Pay Structure, (2) Services and (3) Overall Benefits. First, consider the pay structure.Maintenance Contracts pay structure can be set up three ways. One way is for the customer to buy a block of work for a predetermined amount of money. The customer can draw against the prepaid block until it is depleted. In the case of prepayment, discounts are sometimes possible. At depletion, additional blocks of time can be purchased. The second option would allow the customer to issue a purchase order for lets say $5,000.00 to the subcontractor. No money would change hands until the work is performed. Once the purchase order is exhausted, a new one can be issued. The final option really depends on the customers needs, but does offer a lot of flexibility, if the need really does exist. This option uses the subcontractor’s manpower on a daily basis. Payments are made monthly.

When designing a grid connected system the limiting factors are: Available funds Location size Energy consumption (Usually in that specific order.) When designing an off-grid system – or in this case a grid connected system with battery backup for an extended time – the primary factor is consumption. We need to plan to have the amount of energy necessary to survive an extended time without power. We can live without games for a few days to save energy. Before we even think of designing a system we must first make sure that all available efficiency steps have been taken. That means LED lights and Energy Star rated appliances. $1 in efficiency spending typically equates to $3 less in solar panel system savings.

Decorative lighting creates mood (an overall feeling of serenity or playfulness) and meaning (communication; sometimes this includes signage, such as Exit). Flat, functional lighting (such as the kind in your office) puts people on the alert. Decorative lighting, on the other hand, brings out the shape of objects, the “feel” of texture, and important keynotes. A decorative lighting scheme has variation in light levels and sources that indicate what rooms are for (dim lights in rooms for sleeping, bright lights in playrooms) or what a room’s focal point is. Create focal points with chandeliers and pendants. In a dining room, for example, a chandelier placed over a table draws attention with its soft upward-cast light. (Chandeliers are Traditional.) A pendant light used over a table, however, casts a more concentrated light downward and out. (Pendants are Contemporary.) To create a plan, consider what, where, and when activities take place. Lighting needs to vary its intensity to accommodate multiple activities that occur in a single room. For example, your kitchen may be your favorite place to cook, read, do your hobbies, watch TV, and entertain. Would you want the same level of light for a party that you want for mopping the floor? Lighting stores and home remodeling centers have trained personnel who can steer you toward your best possible lighting choices. Bring your floor plans and other decorating notes with you when you consult a lighting expert. General lighting General, or ambient, lighting illuminates an entire space for visibility and safety. Light bounces off walls and ceilings to cover as much area as possible. General lighting can come from up-lights or down-lights: Up-lights point illumination toward the ceiling. Up-light fixtures include torchiers and wall sconces. Down-lights cast light down from the ceiling or wall. Popular down-lights include recessed lights (cans) and track lights. Some lights, such as table and floor lamps, are both up- and down-lights because they cast light toward both the ceiling and the floor. Task lighting Task, or work, lighting illuminates smaller areas where more intense light is needed. Task light should be three times as bright as general lighting. Overly bright work lamps won’t make up for a dimly lit room (instead, you may develop eyestrain). Using higher light per watt (LPW) bulbs in other fixtures or increasing the number of fixtures to boost general lighting fixes this problem. Good task lighting fixture choices are well-positioned recessed lights, track lighting, pendants, table or floor lamps, and under-cabinet lighting strips. Accent lighting Accent lighting adds brilliant shimmer to make your precious objects, paintings, sculptures, and outstanding architectural features stand out. Use a bulb that’s no more than three times as bright as the surrounding general light. Position the fixture so that the light doesn’t block your line of sight so that no glaring reflections bounce back. If you’re using track lighting for wall washing (lighting a nontextured wall) or wall grazing (lighting a textured wall), aim the beam of light at a 30-degree angle from the vertical to prevent glare and hot spots. Halogen makes the best accent light because of its intensity and brilliance.
