November 2014 - O'Connell Electric will install a third cable for Nik Wallenda, this time to highwire walk in Chicago. A team of eight linemen will secure Nik's cable from the Leo Burnette building to the Marina City Towers and again between both Marina City Towers. Tune in Sunday night, November 2nd, to watch the event live on the Discovery Channel.

The Home Depot is the world’s largest home improvement specialty retailer. They own and operate nearly 2000 warehouse-designed stores worldwide that average 105,000 square feet of floor space. The company established its maintenance and store upgrade program to ensure each facility received the necessary regular maintenance, upgrades, and modernization services to keep them current and safe. Geographically, qualified contractors were screened and certified to perform maintenance, upgrade, and renovation services at The Home Depot stores. Additionally, contractors are on call for emergency service and repairs when such situations arise.
O’Connell service technicians have been providing The Home Depot stores with facilities maintenance, renovation, and emergency electrical services since 1997. We work at 30 stores across New York State from Albany to Buffalo, Binghamton to Massena. O’Connell services electrical, security, and communications systems at The Home Depot Stores providing scheduled service, upgrades and add-ons, and facilitating repairs, moves, and resets as needed.
Our technicians saved one store $30,000 by being able to repair a large oil-filled pad-mounted transformer that had been damaged by a forklift—something a less diversified contractor could not do—saving the company from having to buy a new one. When power was lost at another store, O’Connell technicians were on the scene in 45 minutes and had the situation diagnosed within an hour. We rerouted power through emergency backup systems to get the store quickly back online then repaired the problem affecting primary power in four hours time.
The scope of work and systems we address at The Home Depot stores is broad and varied involving installation and upgrade, modification and retrofit, removal and relocation, replacement and repair, and preventative electrical maintenance and testing of the following: service, conduit, cabling, and wire, lighting (interior & exterior), fire, life safety, surveillance, and security systems, switchgear and transformers, equipment and motor controls, standby generators, UPS, and transfer switches, temperature controls, variable frequency drives, and more. We also provide around-the-clock emergency service response across all systems and for power failures.
O’Connell has built a long-lasting mutually beneficial relationship with The Home Depot through the consistent demonstration of excellence in customer service and craftsmanship combined with dependability and versatility, delivered in both a safe and professional manner.
