Key Considerations When Planning for a Marina Electrical Project

Planning for a marina electrical project is not dissimilar to planning for a residential or commercial job however there are a few more considerations. If you’re in search of a reputable Vancouver marina electrician, you’ve come to the right place! At TCA Electric we have been proudly serving Vancouver since 2009, offering comprehensive marina electrical services and more. As you plan for your upcoming project, we encourage you to consider the following:

Safety First

As with any project, safety is the first concern when planning for marina electrical work. The added risk factors associated with water and power sources, make safety of paramount importance as you take on your marina project. Be sure to contact multiple Vancouver electricians with extensive experience in marina work. Find out if they have completed similar projects. If so, ask what safety precautions they took and inquire about hazards you should be considering as you plan. Be sure to select a Vancouver marina electrician who puts your mind at ease when it comes to safety.

Key Considerations When Planning for a Marina Electrical ProjectProjected Timeline

Missed timelines can add up to major cost concerns and inconveniences for all involved parties. Be sure to talk to your Vancouver marina electrician about your projected timeline, ask if they are allowing room for minor delays, etc. An experienced electrician will be able to set and stick to a project timeline with a very small margin of error. In having this conversation in the planning phase, you can rest assured that your expected project timeline aligns with that of your contractor.

Another important topic to discuss is your contractor’s availability. Sure, they can complete the job in 3 days, but how far out are they currently planning their production schedule? It is always a good idea to allow some cushion in your timeline. If, for example, you’re hoping to have your marina work completed before warmer weather prevails, now is the time to start contacting Vancouver marina electricians.

Talk Upgrades

While remaining within budget is always a concern when taking on a project. You do not want to regret forgoing a nominal cost once the project is complete. Perhaps you’re investing in a power distribution system. If you’re going to find yourself wanting lighting and dock outlets in the near future, wrapping them into your current marina electrical project can save you substantially in the long run. Be sure to talk to your Vancouver marina electrical contractor about your long-term plans; you may very well find that some or all of the work can be completed today without blowing your budget.


Lastly, be sure to discuss necessary preparations. Boats, jet skis and other water toys may need to be removed from the premise to allow your electrician room to complete their work. Ask about any other needs they may have, access to electrical panels, hardware, etc. By taking the time to prepare your space and communicate about your contractor’s needs, you can avoid costly project downtime and protect the interests of everyone involved.
