Claus’ recent experience includes management of the workload, personnel and quality control within the Electrical Department for a large engineering firm as well as project management and project production. The management position required him to be up to speed with industry trends, new methods and materials as they become available and keep up to date with code and regulatory changes. Claus was also responsible for electrical engineering including power engineering, lighting design and design of life safety systems (egress lighting, fire alarm) as the project requires.
