Construction and Renovation


Whether it is to maintain productivity in commerce and industry, to protect people in an institutional building or keep homes safe, the Britton team has the experience to deliver generator solutions that meet each of these unique requirements.

Backup Power in Commerce and Industry

When a power failure occurs, an installed generator ensures the continued supply of electricity to support manufacturing facilities, commercial enterprises and retail environments. The generator allows for the affected enterprise to continue its operation, with little or no loss of productivity.

Backup Power to Protect People - Institutional

An institutional generator installation, found in hospitals, schools, hotels, apartment complexes and condos, is done where there are people and lives to protect.

To ensure the highest standards of security, the Life Safety Code, a set of protocols and strategies, are put in place. This includes the installation of 2-hour fire-rated specialized electrical cables that can withstand fire for 2 hours.

When a fire or other emergency occurs, it is critical that generators and back-up systems supply power to the fire alarms, sprinkler systems, communication networks and emergency lighting.
