La Palma, CA, USA — Rosendin Electric (http://www.rosendin.com), one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, has received a 2016 Project/Team Award from the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) for its contribution to the construction of the Los Angeles Valley College Monarch Center. The Monarch Center was one of three projects selected in the Educational Facilities category. Earlier this year, the Monarch Center project also received an Electrical Excellence Award from the National Electrical Contractors’ Association (NECA).

DBIA is the only organization in the United States dedicated to defining, teaching, and promoting best practices for construction design-build. To be considered for an award, a project must demonstrate the application of DBIA-defined design-build best practices, including bringing together team members during the proposal process, as well as close coordination from the design development stage through field construction and project completion.

The Monarch Center project represents a successful collaborative design-build project that offered Los Angeles Valley College the best design and value based on criteria, including mitigating any additional costs with expedited design-build solutions to address issues encountered in the field. Part of the challenge was completing the project without disrupting daily operations on the Los Angeles Valley College campus. The completed structure has a unique architectural design and houses the College’s bookstore, cafeteria, health services center, and other faculty and student facilities. The project was completed in 27 months at a cost of $46,661,760.

“The completed Monarch Center has an innovative design and interesting lighting and design features, such as roof lighting and a reflective canopy that eliminates the need for ground lighting,” said Dan Domenici, Project Manager for Rosendin Electric. “By working closely with the lead contractor, McCarthy Building Companies, and other project partners from the outset, we were able to overcome some unexpected challenges. Receiving recognition from the DBIA is something the entire design-build team can be proud of.”

Profiles of the winning 2016 design-build projects are available on the DBIA web site. Additional innovative design-build construction projects spanning education, transportation, technology, data centers, healthcare, and other industries are available on the Rosendin Electric web site, http://www.rosendin.com.

Rosendin Electric Launches New Website To Profile Breadth of Capabilities and Promote Online Collaboration

Rosendin.com Gets a New Look with More Details on Specialty Divisions, Projects, Events, History, and a New Subcontractor Portal.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA (February 23, 2015) — Rosendin Electric, one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, today announced the launch of a new website to reflect the company’s diverse construction and engineering capabilities and activities, and the company has added a new portal for subcontractors to manage their information.

The new website provides an immediate snapshot of Rosendin Electric’s services, including Design-Build Engineering, Building Information Modeling (BIM), and renewable energy. Rosendin Electric is a pioneer in Lean Construction best practices and has been an innovator in streamlining construction practices using mobile communications and networking technologies. The new website also provides a showcase for the company’s construction projects, including work in commercial construction, transportation, solar and wind power, and low-voltage wiring.

A new addition to Rosendin.com is a Subcontractor Portal that allows partner contractors to log in to access information about payment status, insurance certificates, W-9 status, and other documentation. Each subcontractor is assigned a secure account that they use to share documents, paperwork, and invoices for review and approval. The portal will become the primary means of communicating with contractors and Rosendin Electric executives predict that providing a self-service portal will save hours in administrative time and speed payment processing.

“We continue to incorporate online resources into our everyday operations,” said Sam Lamonica, CIO of Rosendin Electric. “The launch of this new website with the Subcontractor Portal marks the next step in promoting online partner collaboration. We expect to use the new website as a springboard to expand our online capabilities to continue to streamline workflow and business processes.”

Rosendin Electric is very involved with the community in every region where the company maintains an office, not only through its construction work, but also through community projects and goodwill activities. The new website will serve as a means to communicate with the communities they serve and profile projects that serve those communities.

The new website also shows Rosendin Electric’s international reach. The company now has 13 regional offices serving regions across the country, and the company has been responsible for projects in Israel, Sweden, and Guam. There also is a company timeline dating back to its founding in 1919, and a profile of Rosendin Electric’s commitment to teamwork, quality, service, and integrity.

“We are a very old company working on the cutting edge of electrical construction and this website more closely reflects who we are,” said Tom Sorley, Chairman and CEO of Rosendin Electric. “Rosendin Electric has always been dedicated to attracting the best talent available and building a business with national reach and positive local community impact. Our new online presence allows us to share more details about our industry and community involvement and more closely collaborate with our partners.”

To facilitate recruiting and community outreach, Rosendin Electric has added a list of current job openings and expanded its social media reach. The new website has been designed to be more easily accessible on mobile devices as well, since more of today’s users are browsing the web using smartphones and tablet computers.
