On Apr. 18, 1906, an 8.3 earthquake shook San Francisco, caused fires and destroyed much of the city. All that remained of San Francisco City Hall was the dome. Instead of rebuilding the structure, the city’s Board of Supervisors voted to fabricate a new building. Its construction became a symbol of the city’s rebirth. Doors opened on Dec. 28, 1915, and it is now a National Historic Landmark.
Paul Ornelas, Service Manager for Paganini Electric Corporation in San Francisco, CA, had a project where traditional cable management solutions such as core drilling and the use of floor monuments were not a viable solution.
Paganini Electric Corp., San Francisco, was founded in 1948as a traditional electrical contractor. Since 1998, the company has maintained two divisions: Paganini Electric Corp. (traditional electrical contracting) and Paganini Communications Inc. (low-voltage work); the latter is operated as a separate business. There are approximately 140 employees in the company as a whole.
