What Are The Benefits Of A Preventative Maintenance Agreement?

Thursday, August 12th, 2021

A maintenance agreement provides you with the peace of mind that your facility will remain in good working order. By implementing a preventative maintenance plan, a relationship is strengthened between customers and Egan Company as a service provider to complete routine maintenance. 

Preventative maintenance agreements are similar to a vehicle’s oil changes – dependent upon a time or usage interval, you service them to ensure they are working correctly. Changing the oil in a vehicle ensures that it will continue working properly; similarly, preventative maintenance keeps elements of your facility working properly.


  • Preventative maintenance largely increases reliability. By keeping your equipment in good condition, efficiency and lifespan are both improved. Doing so decreases potential unscheduled downtime of equipment, keeping your operations moving.
  • Service agreements also increase long-term cost savings. While the upfront costs may be more expensive, having a preventative maintenance agreement in place will save money in the long run when repairs are needed. Also, costly downtime is decreased as many potential problems are identified and fixed during regular maintenance servicing.
  • In the event of an emergency, customers with maintenance plans are always prioritized and receive immediate attention.
  • Routine maintenance increases workplace safety overall by ensuring that equipment is working correctly.
  • Finally, preventative maintenance agreements assure code compliance and adherence to required inspections

Creating the Ultimate Luxury Shopping Destination

Monday, May 8th, 2017

Shop, Dine, Stay – Galleria Edina is a testament to the trend for shopping malls in Minnesota. Many malls across the state have adopted a philosophy of creating a shopping destination, offering places for people to shop, eat, engage in recreational activities, and sleep.

The Galleria was initially developed in 1976 with Gabbert’s Furniture Store, and slowly stores were added and enclosed to create a mall similar to the Southdale Center. Since its initial construction, Egan Company has been involved with various expansions and developments of this luxury shopping mall.

In 2008, Galleria Edina was expanded and a new 18-story Westin facility – comprised of 225 hotel rooms and 82 high-end condominiums – was attached to provide the full destination experience. The building also includes a pool, bar/restaurant, meeting space, ballroom, and different parking options. Egan provided Design/Build electrical services and installation of the phone/data, access controls, and fire alarm. A security system and cameras were also installed in the facility’s parking ramp.

Since the construction of Westin Galleria, Egan has assisted with numerous projects, including cooling tower upgrades, owner upgrades to vacant spaces, and pump system replacements. The installation of the mechanical and electrical systems, required coordination of many trades including pipefitting, sheet metal, plumbing, electrical, and millwrights. In addition, Egan provides routine maintenance on retail locations within the mall and Westin Edina Galleria.

Currently, the mall has over 375,000 square feet of retail space, and a recent addition on the mall’s east side adds 20,000 more square feet. The expansion adds several restaurants, home furnishing stores, and apparel shops. Galleria Edina also features a new concept of a ‘restaurant-in-a-bookstore’ at the relocated Barnes & Noble.

Egan has brought many mechanical and electrical solutions to the Owner at all phases of the project, including suggested grease interceptor piping routes, water feature plumbing, and recommended rework to existing and new electrical panels for tenant requirements.
