I began working in residential sector as a teenager for my self employed stepfathers business during the late 1980's. I then moved onto the commercial and light industrial market, primarily working on small to moderate size contracts such as department stores, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, plant automation lines, military facilities, sewage/water treatment plants, medical/testing laboratories and large office buildings. During the time of 1990 to 1996 I was involved in many aspects of the trade throughout these projects. I was able to see, learn and apply myself and complete a four year apprenticeship program. In the late spring of 1996 I began working at The Farfield Company who acquired a large local school contract. During my time my employment with the Farfield company, I have completed many training programs and have acquired and maintained a Harrisburg and Reading city license. I have had the opportunity to obtain a foreman's position in 1996 and complete many projects for the company. In 2001, I sought out and accepted a superintendent's position and have been running work from start to finish for them as their work load permits.
Currently I am the Job foreman at the PSECU building in Harrisburg, PA. I over see all personnel on the 1st floor and site. I handle coordination of all trade work in those areas, layouts, install and material ordering. Job tasks have included service and distribution from raceway, cabling, assembly, termination and energizing of equipment. Installation of all site utility services and parking lot lighting, interior feeder and branch under slab and overhead raceway systems. I have also been involved in the modeling of the Building Information Model. I was the acting superintendent on the following jobs, James Buchanan High School, Spring Grove High School, York County Administration Center and the York County Judicial Center. I have helped complete and punch out the following projects. Reading/Citadel High School, Lancaster County Convention Center, Dallastown Area High School and Middle School. I was the acting foreman on the Gettysburg Area Lincoln Elementary School and completed large integral sections of the Gettysburg Area High School project. I also worked on two projects at the Camp Hill SCI complex involving pod housing and underground high voltage service utilities. These position task have included but are not limited to the following, comprehension and installation of work by specification, contract drawings and NEC code. I have been involved with the installation of large service and distribution equipment, branch and feeder conduit ( concealed and exposed ), branch and feeder cable, bus duct, lighting fixtures and cable tray. Some more complex installations have included twin 4000 amp switchgear assemblies, large pump rooms, kitchens, auditorium/stage lighting, lutron lighting control and prison work. Testing of electrical assemblies for performance levels and safety concerns. Responded to emergency calls and provided on-site support. Worked extensively on three-phase, 277/480 volt power distribution systems. Collaborated with diverse teams of architects and electrical engineers. Trained facility staff members per specification requirements.
I worked on most basic electrical installations, feeder/branch conduit, feeder/branch wire, service and distribution equipment, light fixtures, cable tray and devices. I worked directly under superintendent/foreman and was able to run areas and led other workers on various tasks. ( I sought employment with the The Farfield Company to work on the new Gettysburg High School, to be part of something in my home town.)
Basic electrical installations, mostly branch conduit/wire, lighting fixtures and devices. ( I was hired to fulfill a Pennsylvania job contract requiring 80% PA employees, and I needed sponsorship for my last year of apprenticeship. Warren wanted me to remain employed with them after I completed my apprenticeship, however, all of their work was in southern Virginia, three hours south of Gettysburg.)
My work mostly consisted of branch conduit/wire, lighting fixtures and devices. ( I completed my third year in the apprenticeship program under Wolfe, unfortunately the company filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy and dropped their apprenticeship sponsorship.)
Rigid conduit/wire, lighting fixtures, devices and some involvement with control wiring. ( I only worked here for about eight weeks, I went to work for them to get through my third year of apprenticeship. They had promised me that I was going to be working at a water treatment facility, the contract was suspended due to some local disputes and I was placed on a service van. Wolfe Electric called me in for an interview, and was willing to sponsor my third year of school.)
I was able to get into some 200 amp service work, wiring up homes and some small business buildings, light fixtures and devices. ( I went back to work for my stepfather doing residential electrical work. This was short term until I found an electrical contractor who was a member of A.B.C. and could sponsor me, so I could finish school.)
I completed many equipment connections, lighting fixtures and change orders. Two coworkers and myself from Chase Electric were hired by Norwood to fulfill the Chase contract, Chase had closed their doors because of bankruptcy. Being a Sub-contractor under Norwood with all materials bought, Norwood honored the remaining few weeks of labor to complete the project.
I was hired as a laborer, but wanted to be in the electrical field. I was taught to bend conduit, pull branch wire and MC cable. Later, I began installing branch and feeder conduit and lighting fixtures in large exposed distribution centers. I also worked with rigid branch and feeder conduit systems, light control work, cranes and battery storage and finished a Wal-mart store which was about 80% complete when I took over. I had completed my first two years of the apprenticeship program with Chase until they went bankrupt and closed in December 1992.)
I began working at fourteen on weekends and over the summer for my stepfather who is a self-employed building contractor. I had helped with many jobs, framing, roofing, plumbing, electrical, drywall, painting ETC... ( He never seemed to have enough work for his son and me, I wanted more so I went to work with Chase. )
