Jobs That Power Our Rep

Our comprehensive array of electrical services are on display in any of the jobs highlighted here. Yeah, we handle high voltage, low voltage and fiber both above and below ground. But our services don’t stop because it’s not specifically “electrical” work. Our people care, and if that means sweeping the floor to get a job to meet our own requirements for success, that’s what we’ll do.

Design Build

Teamwork & Accountability

Whether you are adding a new production line in your facility or expanding that facility, it is vital that you understand the process and make a plan before any work begins; these are hallmarks of the design build mentality. Planning and building systemized processes will not only save dollars and headaches but can also save you from unnecessary downtime. Our approach to design build is broken into phases for both organization and manageability purposes.

A design-build project typically falls into the following phases:

  • Planning and Procurement
  • Installation & Execution
  • Commissioning, Qualification & Validation (CQV)
  • Project Closeout & Lessons Learned
  • Long-term Maintenance Support


A Strategic Approach delivers precise installations.

Building great things takes time, not only in the form of execution in the field, but more importantly, a collaborative and strategic upfront approach with a supportive preconstruction team, whose goal is to eliminate unnecessary surprises. Our commitment to preconstruction allows us to make strategic decisions early in the process, delivering the best value in the supply chain where we have come to expect the unexpected. Our preconstruction philosophy is simple, and at the end of the day, our goal is to execute the highest quality projects in the industries we serve, and we achieve this through:

  • A Full Understanding of the Project Scope 
  • Utilization of Accurate Cost Models 
  • Minimizing Scope Changes  
  • Building and Managing Relationships with Vendors & Partners  
  • Driving Solutions through Technology & Innovation 


leveraging technology for streamlined executions.

Our commitment to preconstruction allows us to make strategic decisions early in the process, delivering the best value in the supply chain where we have come to expect the unexpected. We provide our customers with detailed drawings with our equipment with detailed routing directions, preventing clashes with other trades during the construction process. Our dedicated Virtual Design Construction (VDC) coordinator oversees the process of project drawing creation through all phases, schematic design, design development, construction documents, and all phases of submittals as needed on the project.

BIM Software includes:

  • Autodesk Construction Cloud (BIM360)
  • Revit
  • Bluebeam Studio
  • AutoCAD
