Why Choose Roman Electric Company?

 

Blue Print More and more industrial builders choose to rely on their electrical contractor for total design/build responsibility. General contractors, construction managers and owners prefer dealing with one supplier for both electrical design and construction because they have greater input and control. And they like the convenience of one contractor having total responsibility so it takes just one call to complete your project.

 

As a design/build electrical contractor, we like being able to provide the maximum impact on electrical system quality, efficiency and economy. So we continue to develop our staff of engineers, designers and technicians, and the CAD systems that facilitate design/build work.

 

The systems and components we design can include power, lighting, automation, low voltage controls, fire alarm, telephone, and data systems, depending on the specific job. When we're satisfied with the initial design, our job foreman meets with the designer to provide field input. This provides a more efficient, economical way to accomplish the intent of the design, and reduces the number of changes needed during construction. The result is the most economical solution that meets the owner's needs.

Bayshore Undergoes Distinctive Expansion


Roman Electric worked on Building N, the largest in the new Bayshore Town Center, a six-story, mixed-use facility combining retail, parking and apartments.The huge new Bayshore Town Center in Glendale brings the first lifestyle shopping center to the Milwaukee area. The $360 million expansion of 52-year-old Bayshore Mall combines stores, restaurants, apartments, entertainment, office space and parking on the 68 acre site.


Roman's exterior artistry helped give Building N its compelling nighttime beauty.Corna/Kokosing Construction Co. of Westerville, OH was general contractor for the project's massive centerpiece structure, "Building N." The developer was Steiner & Associates of Columbus, OH. Bayshore Town Center is the owner. Roman Electric was the electrical contractor for the shell, apartments and several tenants in the huge Building N, largest in the Center.


The mixed-use, six-story Building N measures 580' by 300'. It will have 25 retailers on the first floor, 2 1/2 levels of parking there and above, and three floors of apartments at the top. Many of the stores are open and the 113 apartments will be finished in May.


Andy Thompson, Corna/Kokosing project engineer, said, "Even though we were an out-of-town contractor, Roman Electric was very responsive and worked efficiently with us. They had a good crew and things went smoothly. They put in a lot of time in the last month to get us open in time. Roman did a great job."

 


Uline Builds Massive 1,086,202 sq. ft.
Distribution Center in Pleasant Prairie


Roman installed 2,276 high bay fixtures to light Uline's massive 40 ft. high interior and its 210 aisles.Without looking inside, it's hard to imagine the mammoth, 1,086,202 sq. ft., 40 ft. high distribution facility built by Uline off Lakeview Parkway in Pleasant Prairie. The 500 ft. by 2000 ft. building contains more area than 18 football fields. Uline, a family-owned business, is the leading distributor of shipping, industrial and packaging materials to businesses throughout North America.


Working on a $3.9 million contract, Roman Electric Co., Inc installed power and lighting in the massive warehouse. C.G. Schmidt was the general contractor.


To provide the power needed, Roman installed one 4,000 amp and two 3,000 amp services. Because Uline uses only electric forklift trucks, Roman provided 1,400 amps of power for each of two battery charging stations that, each night, recharge the 2,000 lb batteries powering each forklift.


Roman foreman Erich Eirschele installs power for one of Uline's wrappers.Roman also wired 36 wrappers, building-mounted and pole-mounted exterior lighting, a guardhouse, and an array of interior lighting. Uline standardized lighting to match their three other plants in North America. Planning and installing lighting was the biggest part of Roman's job.


Gabe Rose, Roman vice president - design & engineering who managed the project, said, "The size and height of the building was a big challenge in terms of having materials in the right places when needed, and enough lifts and carts to quickly move manpower from one place to the next."


The building inside was illuminated with pulse-start metal halide high bay fixtures. 1,925 400-watt units light the interior and it's 210 aisles. The speed bays, perimeter areas around the aisles where fork trucks rapidly maneuver to fill orders, were lighted with 371 1000-watt fixtures. The building exterior is also lighted with pulse-start metal halide fixtures. Included are 106 building-mounted 400-watt lights and 66 400-watt pole-mounted lights


Randy Copenharve, Uline facility/construction manager, said, "This was one of the largest jobs done in Southeastern Wisconsin. So one of our challenges was just pure size. Roman did a fantastic job. They're very professional. They did nice work all across the board." Patrick Schultz, project manager for C.G. Schmidt, said, "Roman performed well. They handled a difficult schedule with many weather delays and turned it into a success."


General foreman Scott Hobus and foreman Erich Eirschele ran the job for Roman.

 


Kenilworth Building Renovated Into
UWM Housing and Peck School Of The Arts


With creative demolition, the Kenilworth building was converted into two buildings separated by a walkway, patio, green space and natural lighting. With the creative investment of $68 million, the moribund Kenilworth Building has been transformed into UWM housing and art studios, revitalizing the area. The huge structure, one of the largest buildings on the east side, covers an entire city block from Prospect Ave. to Farwell Ave. at Kenilworth Place.


The original conjoined buildings, constructed in 1914 and 1943, were rebuilt into two facilities, each with 250,000 sq. ft. of space. Kenilworth Square Apartments on Farwell Ave. has 174 units with housing for up to 374 UWM graduate and upper level students. Peck School of the Arts on Prospect Ave. includes space for dance, music, film, theater and the visual arts. The two buildings combined also have 26,500 sq. ft. of ground-floor retail space.


Splitting Kenilworth into two buildings gave each more natural light and created green space between them. They are connected by a 220 space parking garage below. Distinctive looks were produced by reconditioning and painting the apartment building's concrete exterior white, and restoring and cleaning the brown masonry exterior of the Peck School.


Peck School of the Arts on Prospect Ave. is a six-story building with space for dance, music, film, theater and the visual arts, and ground floor retail business.Weas Development Co. developed the complex project for the UW system and the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee. RACM is the owner from whom UWM leases the buildings. KBS Construction was the general contractor. Roman Electric was the design/build electrical and voice/data/security cabling contractor.


Scott Weas, one of the developer's partners, said, "The job was unusual in many ways, both in the public/private development structure for the UW System, and the architectural solution implemented. We cut a huge monolithic building in half to construct two attractive buildings. And we did it all in a short time frame to make the housing available for UWM's fall semester. Our team certainly exceeded all of our expectations."


Weas was pleased with Roman's work. "Roman Electric did a fantastic job," he said. "We put a lot of trust into a contractor under a design/build model. We get married early and if they can't deliver we're kind of stuck. Roman performed from beginning design, early budgeting and preconstruction services through managing and designing the overall project.


The seven-story Kenilworth Square Apartments on Farwell Ave. has 174 units with housing for up to 374 UWM graduate and upper level students. It also has ground floor retail space."Too often what we hear from our partners is, 'we've got a problem, how are you going to solve it?' Roman would say 'here's the problem, here are your available solutions, help us choose the best option.' They did very well at meeting overall performance specs and quality standards." Roman project managers were Bob Czajka and Greg Blaney.


KBS Construction project manager Dave Rhoda said the project was a difficult job requiring structural demolition to separate the existing building into two, then design and construct each to fit its respective function.


"Roman did an excellent job," he said. "The buildings were designed with unique exposed features including conduit, bus duct and cable trays. Roman did a great job working with the architect to make all the exposed fixtures and infrastructure fit esthetically. I can't say enough about the work of president Phil Rose and foremen Kevin Schlax and Dave Broz."


High End Cabling Work

Roman TechNet, working on a $750,000 design/build project - one of its largest, installed an elaborate and lengthy voice/data/security cabling system. The network included top-of-the-line Category 6 data cable for the voice and data systems in both buildings. The high end cable gives UWM expanded bandwidth for higher speed networks, assuring them of extensive capacity for later expansion.


TechNet built 18 telecommunications closets with state-of-the-art laser optimized fiber optic cable that allows a 10 gigabyte bandwidth, again accommodating future expansion. They installed 1800 data connection drops.


The security system includes 27 CCTV cameras inside and outside, a Code Blue emergency call system with 22 call stations, and bio-readers - three-dimensional hand scanning devices - controlling access to 67 secure doors and the elevators.


Cable networks were connected to both the city fiber and UWM systems so the buildings and campus can communicate with each other. Students can even go online to see which washers and dryers are available in the laundry room.


Roman TechNet project managers were Scott Archie and Jerry Trinkl.

 


Huge New Energy-Efficient Distribution Center For JohnsonDiversey


The well-designed lighting system is expected to reduce energy usage by 60% and save up to $90,000 per year.JohnsonDiversey's meticulously planned new 550,000 sq. ft. distribution center in Sturtevant is a highly energy-efficient, LEED certified building. Energy use was substantially reduced with a design focus on the building's major energy-using systems as well as general improvements in all other areas. As a result the company has applied for the prestigious Gold LEED Certification.


General contractor on the challenging project was Riley Construction. Roman Electric was design/build contractor for the electrical systems, a $1,700,000 job.


To meet LEED requirements, Roman incorporated many energy saving features into its design. High output T5 high bay fluorescents light the warehouse while T5 volumetric lighting is used in the offices. Many and varied occupancy sensors and lighting controls limit energy use in office spaces, the warehouse and common areas. Photo cells reduce artificial lighting in perimeter bay areas during daylight hours.


High frequency battery charging instead of standard SCR charging substantially reduces power use and peak demand. Roman's design also had to artfully position the 1,100 light fixtures to keep them the required distance from the hundreds of sprinkler heads.


A variety of lighting controls and occupancy sensors limit energy use in the warehouse, offices and common areas.Roman Electric estimated that JohnsonDiversey spent about $200,000 extra to meet LEED lighting system requirements. But compared to state and ASHRAE lighting allowances, the building will consume 60% less energy at an annual savings of $70,000 to $90,000. In addition, the reduction in energy used also reduces pollutants generated during energy production.


Dave Riley, president of Riley Construction, was very impressed with Roman's work. "Roman's very easy to work with and they're a great team player," he said. "We were really pleased with the leadership of both their office and field people. Phil Rose was the project manager and made things happen. Kevin Schlax was an exceptional foreman for Roman. It was just a great job from Roman's standpoint!"

 


New Associated Bank Building Combines Beauty and Security


The new Associated Bank at 2590 N. Downer Ave. provides a convenient location and an impressive prototype design for new and remodeled branches.Associated Bank's new location at 2590 N. Downer Ave gives it more space, a fresh look, convenient drive-up facilities and a unique "man-trap" entry that foils thieves.


The attractive new bank features unique lighting fixtures with cove and ceiling lamps in a cloud-like setting. Security is greatly enhanced with a single person entry and exit system that allows bank employees to activate a switch that traps departing lawbreakers in a bulletproof glass enclosed box. The marquee facility will serve as the prototype for new and remodeled branch banks.


General contractor was JM Construction, architect was Rinka Chung Architecture, and Roman Electric installed power, security and lighting systems on a primarily design/build basis. "Roman has a strong reputation for quality, expertise and service," said commercial banking group manager Greg Larson, "so the bank was pleased to award the work to them."


Greg Larson, commercial banking group manager, and Jennifer Walczak, commercial banking supervisor, pose in the new bank's impressive lobby. Jim Karrels and Darren Miller were project managers for JM Construction. Karrels said, "This was the first time we used Roman on a project and we're very, very happy with not only their product but also their dedication. In the rush to be ready for the grand opening, the last couple days ran like a fire drill. Roman's electricians stayed on site to make sure all the last minute details were done."


Don Roeber, construction project manager for Associated Bank, said, "The architect designed lots of cool lighting systems combining indirect lighting, decorative ceiling lighting and neat pendant fixtures."


Roeber said, "Roman was outstanding. Their foreman Kevin Schlax was very good. He was very kind in explaining what he needed and how he could help. We're very, very happy with Roman's work."


Roman VP Gabe Rose was project manager on the job.

 


New Company, New Building, Unique
Power Transmission Reliability


American Transmission Co., the first for-profit stand-alone electrical transmission company in the U.S., built this new 58,000 sq, ft. facility in Pewaukee.American Transmission Co., formed in January, 2001 as a result of federal and state laws fostering competition in the energy marketplace, has built a two-story, 58,000 sq. ft. facility at Ridgeview Office Center II on Highway J near I-94 in Pewaukee.


Government regulations designed to introduce electrical energy competition, efficiency and reliability resulted in the creation of new companies solely responsible for generation, transmission or distribution. ATC, which now owns transmission facilities formerly owned by five utility companies, transmits high voltage power to customers in Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois. It is the first for-profit stand-alone transmission company in the U.S.




Redundant Power

Roman Electric handled design/build of the electrical system in ATC's building, which needed a high degree of reliability because it operates continuously. Phil Rose, Roman vice president of design and engineering, said the work began with a meeting of all equipment suppliers and construction supervisors to most efficiently satisfy ATC needs, meet budget requirements and engineer the most reliable electrical system possible. "The result was an electrical system with a 99.9% reliability," Phil said.


The unique, highly redundant electrical system began with two high voltage primary power feeds from WEPCO. Two switches allow automatic transfer of power from one primary service to the other as needed. A 500 kilowatt emergency generator is incorporated into the system for power if both primary feeds go down. Adding to the power redundancy are two battery-powered 100 KVA Uninterruptible Power Supply units also equipped with transfer switching.


Phil said timing on the job was also unique because Roman completed design and installation of power distribution and lighting for the complex system in just 3 1/2 months.


Bob Ulmer, ATC director - administration and technology, said, "Roman did a great job. They do quality work and they're flexible. Their people are more than willing to do what's needed to satisfy the customer."


General contactor on the job was M.A. Mortenson Co. Sheri McQuality, Mortenson project manager, said, "Roman made my life easier. They did a wonderful job. They know what they're doing, and they do it."


Mike Texley, Mortenson site superintendent, was very impressed with Roman's work. "Roman's people did a super job," he said. "I really appreciated their hard work and dedication. Roman's foreman Sam Kozaczok, project manager Barry Dickenson and design engineer Phil Rose were very cooperative, excellent at coordinating activities and got all the elements in place as needed.


"The electrical inspector said we were lucky to have an electrical foreman like Sam because of his intelligence, knowledge and desire to get things done right."


Roman had a crew of up to 30 electricians on the job working six day weeks.

 


New Courtyard by Marriott Hotel Offers Access to Grand Avenue Mall


Roman Electric installed the complete electrical, data, telephone, and master TV antenna systems in the new Courtyard by Marriott at 405 W. Michigan St.The new Courtyard by Marriott is a 169 room hotel downtown at 405 W. Michigan St. The six story stone and stucco building has corridor access to the Grand Avenue Mall and is connected to the Mall parking garage. The hotel features an indoor pool and a 70 seat restaurant.


Roman Electric handled the complete electrical system on a design/build basis and also installed the data, telephone and master TV antenna systems. Roman used newly developed wiring materials and methods which resulted in a time-saving installation and faster turnaround.


Burt Cohen, owner of the new Courtyard, said, "Phil Rose, who served as Roman's project manager on the job, was very professional and easy to work with. And Roman foreman Kevin Schlax was just a prince! Roman's crew knew what needed to be done, and did it. I'd never hesitate to use Roman on another job."







GE Medical Systems Invests $50 million In New High Tech Facilities


G.E. Medical Systems will use this new three-story, 195,000 sq. ft. building for its Functional & Molecular Imaging and Computed Tomography businesses, and American operation headquarters.GE Medical Systems, the $7 billion world leader in medical imaging and technology, has invested $50 million in the construction of two new facilities at its Waukesha headquarters. The 195,000 sq. ft. and 70,000 sq. ft. buildings will expand Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Computed Tomography (CT), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MR) technology.


The massive job had a very short time frame. Both buildings were completed in less than a year. Construction manager M.A. Mortenson Co. selected Roman Electric as a partner on the project to work directly with them and consulting engineer Arnold & O'Sheridan Inc.


"We joined the project when the engineer had scope drawings, maybe 10% complete," said Phil Rose, Roman vice president of design and engineering who helped design the job. "We became part of the team to complete drawings, select materials and methods, and construct the buildings." The design assist and build project was a $6.4 million job for Roman.


Phil said Roman was selected not just for its preliminary budget but because it could foresee and price client needs despite the sketchy early plans, and judiciously save and/or spend money as needed to satisfy owner desires.


100% Power Redundancy

WEPCO provided GE Medical, a primary power customer, with two 25 KV high voltage lines which GE converted with its high voltage transformers. Roman installed two 3000 KVA transformers for the larger building, two 2000 KVA transformers for the other, and double-ended substations for each building. It gave GE 100% power redundancy to insure power at all times.


GE's high-end architectural design included innovative lighting and energy efficiency. Many decorative light fixtures enhance building beauty. All offices are lighted with indirect lighting fixtures widely spaced on 15 ft. centers and equipped with improved optics to spread light more effectively. State-of-the-art lighting controls include multi-programmable switching and individualized automatic daylight dimming near windows.


Roman also designed and installed a state-of-the-art, campus-wide security system. A single security officer, using the specialized fiber optic network, can operate any site or building surveillance camera from one location.


Roman project manager John Perse, permanently housed on-site, designed the lighting systems and handled the constant array of changes GE requested. A crew of up to 60 Roman electricians built the electrical systems.


Mortenson senior project manager John Martin said, "We had a dynamic team on-site and they did a great job. We always expect a lot of Roman and they exceeded our expectations. They handled all the challenges we gave them. We're very, very pleased with Roman's performance."

 


New Radisson Hotel & Convention Center
Largest In Kenosha County


The new 90,000 sq. ft. Radisson Hotel and Convention Center is the largest in Kenosha County.Wispark Corp. has constructed a Radisson Hotel and Convention Center at its 1500 acre Lakeview Corporate Park in Pleasant Prairie.


The six story Radisson, which cost nearly $10,000,000, is the largest lodging hotel in Kenosha County. The 90,000 sq. ft. facility has 120 rooms and suites, a 4,000 sq. ft. banquet hall, a restaurant, and a pool and exercise area.


Project developer was Graves Development, St. Cloud, Minnesota. General contractor was Mortenson Co. Roman Electric handled all the electrical work on a design/build basis, and installed cabling for the data communications network.


Radisson Hotel general manager Ralph Koransky said theirs is the only full-service hotel in Kenosha County, offering dining, meeting, banquet and room services. "This is also a very pretty building," he said. "Roman did a real nice job."

 


Huge Wholesale Warehouse Speeds Weyco Shoe Delivery


Weyco's 345,000 sq. ft. warehouse and office will accommodate up to 1,600,000 pairs of shoes.How much space would you need to store up to 1,605,000 pairs of shoes? For Weyco Group Inc. the answer is 345,581 sq. ft. of warehouse and office space. That's more shoes and space than Imelda Marcos reportedly has.


Roman electrician Bob Crucius installs programmable logic controllers for the highly automated conveyor system that will move, sort, store, select and ship shoes. Weyco, a wholesaler of mid-price shoes to many large and small local retailers, built a new facility at 333 W. Estabrook Blvd. For retailers, Weyco warehouses three major brands of shoes in varied sizes and styles, and rapidly delivers shoes as needed.


The two story warehouse has an open look with second level storage in parts of the facility. To maintain the high level lighting desired in open areas as well as in second level storage shelves, Roman Electric designed several types of lighting.


Warehouse lighting includes 2,000 eight ft. fluorescent strips and forty 40 watt metal halide fixtures. The office is lighted with 300 linear ft. of indirect fluorescent fixtures and 18 pendant-mounted fluorescents. The array of lighting fixtures required 21 pages of electrical drawings, all generated by Roman's CAD group.


Roman installed a 3000 amp 277/480 volt service. To provide maximum flexibility in the office, Roman electricians put in a network of underfloor cable to provide power wherever office partitions are situated. Jack Tomkiewicz, project manager for construction manager Opus North Corp., said, "Roman foreman Kevin Schlax did a great job."


John Wittkowske, Weyco CFO, said, "I was very happy with Roman Electric's work. In fact, I recommended them to Mantissa Corp., the company that provided our conveyor system." So Roman also wired the high-speed sorter controls for the automated system that moves, sorts, stores, selects and ships shoes. The highly efficient 300 ft. long, 250 tray conveyor system winds through the warehouse on two levels.

 


$40 Million Honeycreek Corporate Center
Quickly Constructed On 22 Acre Site


Three prairie design buildings are planned for Honeycreek Corporate Center at 125. S 84 St. The unique site will include three ponds, bridges, a waterfall and prairie grassland.If you travel East/West I-94 you've probably noticed the building rapidly rising out of 22 acres of open land just north of the freeway and west of 84th St. It's the first of three buildings that will make up the $40,000,000 Honeycreek Corporate Center, 125 S. 84 St.


The 120,000 sq. ft. first building is four stories with a full basement which includes 27 parking spaces. The attractive building features an exterior of Fabcon precast concrete with embedded brick. Opus North Corporation is the owner and developer of the project.


Complex Circuits

Working with a design/build contract, Roman Electric installed the building's electrical systems, then handled all the electrical work for building tenants.


Because the offices contain large open areas, Roman electricians installed complex underfloor circuits which they fed into prewired partitions in a flurry of activity near the end of the job.


"The time frame on the job was a killer," said Opus senior project manager Tom Kennedy. "We're not easy to work with and Roman has learned how to respond to job demands and provide the quality we expect. They have the ability to flow their schedule to meet our needs. They quickly respond, get it done, don't complain and don't ask for extra money. They're consistently one of our finest contractors."

The club has two full size basketball courts with 12 hoops. Forty 400 watt decorative metal halide lamps illuminate the courts as the light reflects off the shiny floor.The new Motion Fitness & Racquet Club on Beloit Rd. in New Berlin is a 146,000 sq. ft. testament to the growing interest in physical fitness. The huge impressive club features strength and cardio training, swimming and a 17,000 sq. ft. water park, tennis and racquetball, group exercise, volleyball, basketball, running/walking, simulated golf, child care, kids' activities, massage therapy and more.


Roman Electric was the design/build electrical contractor on the fast-paced job. Their $750,000 contract included installation of a 2000 amp 277/480 volt electrical service and a variety of specialized lighting placed at different heights over the sprawling facility. Roman project manager Scott Kowalkowski and designer Doug Hein designed the electrical system.


Six indoor tennis courts are brightly lighted by 1000 watt metal halide lamps.Dan Eckerman, project manager for general contractor Venture Development, said, "We built the club in 10 months, a phenomenal job for such a short time frame. Roman brought a lot of engineering value to the project. They did an excellent job." Eppstein Uhen Architects designed the building.


Motion Fitness owner Joe Dunne said the club is state-of-the-art, the largest in Wisconsin and one of the largest in the country. "We broke ground late last November and nobody believed we'd open this October," he said. "But we did it and Roman was a huge part of that.


"There's an immense amount of electrical work in this building. We've got 3 1/2 acres under roof with a great deal of customized lighting, power to the pumps for the pools and the gigantic air conditioning system, and everything's computerized. Roman did an awesome job!"
