Troy Theis
Senior Designer of Electrical Engineering Systems


To Troy Theis, efficiency is king. When it comes to electricity, there’s not a watt to waste. And when he finds a way to save a bit of power– or effort or money– he gets, well, amped. Sometimes it’s by suggesting the use of new technology, such as low-energy solid state LED lighting. Other times it’s by simply narrowing down multiple specified fixtures in a design to just a few, reducing replacement storage needs and hassle. But Troy’s approach always involves designing a comprehensive plan that seamlessly combines power distribution, lighting, fire alarm and voice/data systems in the smartest and most economical way possible, while ensuring each system is up to code. No waste. No unnecessary complications. It all just works. And like Troy would want, we won’t use one more word here.
