As a longtime member of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), OlympiaTech will participate in the NECA Safety Stand Down for COVID-19 taking place on April 29, 2020 to recognize its own essential workers, as well as the many electricians across the country, who continue to work on critical construction projects during the pandemic.
Valued Clients and Partners,
As you know, Governor Walz has issued a “stay at home” order requiring all Minnesotans to stay at home, subject to certain exceptions, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. OlympiaTech is considered an essential and critical business sector so we are exempt from this order pursuant to the Emergency Executive Order 20-20.
This means OlympiaTech will remain operational during this two-week period which begins on Friday March 27, 2020 at 11:59 PM and ends on Friday, April 10, 2020 at 5:00 PM.
Valued Clients and Partners,
As you are all aware, there’s a rapidly developing public health concern regarding COVID-19 spreading in the United States and around the globe. OlympiaTech is committed to protecting the health and safety of our clients, partners, vendors, employees and their families, and the greater community.

Property managers, facility managers, and building owners know how disruptive the loss of power can be. Being without power, heating and air conditioning, refrigeration, security, and a fully functioning facility can be more than just an inconvenience.

That’s why electrical preventative maintenance is a necessary investment. While it may seem costly to perform regular preventative maintenance, it really can save you thousands in disruption and repairs.Continue reading “Benefits of Performing Electrical Preventative Maintenance”

In an era of rising energy costs and declining budgets, energy conservation is a must for property owners. An easy way to reduce energy consumption in commercial and industrial properties is through the use of occupancy sensors. Occupancy sensors allow lights to be turned on only when a room is occupied therefore eliminating unnecessary lighting.
