Rosendin Electric

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.

ENR Chooses Two Rosendin Electric Projects for 2016 Global Best Projects Awards

Rosendin Electric Projects Chosen Among the Best in the World in Categories of Green Projects and Residential/Hospitality.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA — Rosendin Electric (http://www.rosendin.com), one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, is pleased to announce that two of the company’s 2016 construction projects, the Stanford Energy Systems Innovations central power plant replacement and construction of 399 Fremont Street in San Francisco, have been singled out for Global Best Project Awards by Engineering News-Record (ENR). The Stanford Energy Systems Innovation project was chosen for a Global Best Project Award in the category for best Green Project and 399 Fremont received an Award of Merit as an outstanding Residential/Hospitality project.

This is the fourth year that ENR has presented Global Best Projects Awards. There were 23 projects chosen this year spanning 15 countries and five continents, including the two Rosendin Electric projects. In selecting the winners, judges considered factors such as safety performance, innovations, design and construction quality, and construction challenges. Special consideration was given to the diversity of the project teams, and how the completed projects would benefit the community or the construction industry.

“Rosendin Electric prides itself on tackling some of the most challenging construction projects and bringing innovation, technology, and best building practices to every job,” said Jim Hawk, Executive Vice President of Preconstruction for Rosendin Electric. “Having our work singled out as the best worldwide is a real honor. Recognition by third-party industry leaders such as ENR is especially rewarding and serves as independent validation that our work is, indeed, world class.”

The Stanford Energy Systems Innovation project was a $438 million initiative to replace the central power plant at Stanford University with a system that would be 70 percent more efficient. The challenge was the replacement had to be made without disrupting power to the 25,000 people on the Stanford campus every day. The system changeover required 140 building conversions with 30 to 40 scheduled utility interruptions each week. The entire project took 14 months to complete.

Construction of 399 Fremont Street was an international effort with Rosendin Electric collaborating with firms from three continents. The 42-story, $195 million project includes 447 luxury rental units as well as a rooftop lounge, library, swimming pool, spa, conference center, and even a dog park. The project also includes the world’s largest solar water heater designed to reduce the energy required to heat water by 30 percent. Thanks to close collaboration among the teams through regular meetings, the project was completed in less than two years; two months ahead of schedule despite project challenges.

Profiles of other world-class construction projects spanning education, transportation, technology, data centers, healthcare, and other customers are available on the Rosendin Electric web site, http://www.rosendin.com.

Rosendin Electric Receives 2016 Constructech Gold Vision Award for Software Tool to Standardize Field Payroll Processes

New Time Tracking Integration Solution Wins Top Honors for Streamlining Payroll, Eliminating Errors, and Accurately Tracking Work Hours.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, 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 Gold Vision Award from Constructech for developing a process to streamline and standardize field payroll for offices and job sites across the country. The new payroll solution eliminates coding errors, saves administration time on data entry and remediation, and provides project supervisors an extremely accurate picture of labor utilization and requirements, which is a real advantage in competitive bidding.

The Constructech Vision Awards acknowledge the accomplishments of companies that have applied technology in innovative ways to remain competitive in the field of construction. Rosendin Electric won this year’s Gold Vision award for developing Time Entry, a custom application designed to integrate AboutTime mobile resource management software with Oracle’s financial accounting system. The new Time Entry system has allowed Rosendin Electric to standardize payroll processing across all company offices. This system eliminates coding errors, reduces payroll processing time, and provides an accurate daily report of time worked. Said one project manager, “We now have validation in place. The new system enables us to catch errors we have not been able to in the past. We also reprocess fewer corrected paychecks thanks to the new system.”

“Rosendin Electric is continually assessing new technology and strategies that improve efficiency, but every new technology solution has to prove itself cost-effective,” said Diya Peter, Operations Applications Lead for Rosendin Electric. “Our new Time Entry system has already substantially reduced administration time and payroll errors. It has the added benefit of making our field superintendents more efficient and it gives management an accurate picture of worker hours required to increase bidding accuracy. We know that Time Entry has proven a winner for Rosendin Electric and we are delighted that Constructech agrees by granting us a Gold Vision Award.”

Before implementing the new Time Entry system, Excel timesheets were gathered from various regions, imported into a database for validation, and then moved to the Oracle platform for payroll processing. The challenge was that time was being charged to invalid task codes, in turn leading to substantial delays and remediation of paychecks. Regional managers were also spending more time gathering timesheets and checking them for accuracy.

With the new Time Entry system, Rosendin Electric project managers can now use their iPads or handheld devices to track and transmit time from the job site each day, leading to more accurate reporting without task code errors. Time Entry has allowed job superintendents to enter notes about reimbursements, job overrides, and other variables, thus, eliminating time-consuming communication between regional administrators and payroll staff. The new Time Entry also leverages RFID, QR/barcode badges to more accurately track workers time on the job.

This is the third consecutive year that Rosendin Electric has received a Vision Award. The company also received a Gold Constructech Vision Award in the category of Specialty Contractor: Electrical Work in 2015, 2014, 2012, and 2011.

Rosendin Electric Gives Desert Hills High School Students a “Day in the Life” of an Electrical Contractor

Hands-on Construction Project Highlights Vocational Tour to Give Students Information About Career Opportunities in Electrical Construction.

Rosendin Electric

Tempe, AZ, USA — Rosendin Electric (http://www.rosendin.com), one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, recently hosted students from Desert Hills High School in Gilbert, Arizona, to help them understand the scope and demands of electrical contracting and to provide hands-on experience with electrical design-build and construction project management.

The tour was offered to students participating in the regional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) program developed by the Arizona Department of Education to promote education in science and engineering. Upon arrival, the students were presented with a mock construction project to complete. Designed to give students an understanding of the end-to-end requirements of electrical construction, the project included developing plans, using Building Information Modeling (BIM) systems for modeling, creating a parts list, understanding prefabrication, pricing and bidding, and more.

“We continue to see a growing demand for skilled talent in the electrical construction industry,” said Dean Howard, Business Development Manager for Rosendin Electric’s Tempe office. “Today’s electrical contractor has to understand computer modeling, logistics, finance, alternative energy, and much more. By giving students hands-on experience, we hope more will consider a career in electrical construction.”

According to a recent survey by the Associated General Contractors of America, 86 percent of contractors are having difficulty finding hourly skilled construction workers. The same survey reports that 52 percent are having difficulty finding experienced professionals for positions such as project managers and supervisors. Experts predict an ongoing need for skilled labor throughout the country, including in markets with high demand for new building such as Phoenix.

Rosendin Electric executives hope this event is the first in a series of tours. The company plans to continue to work with area high schools to promote interest in electrical construction and to encourage students to pursue an internship or apprenticeship.

Rosendin Electric Ranks Third on EC&M List of Top 50 Electrical Contractors for 2015

New Construction Projects, Increased Demand for Data Services, and More Efficient Field Operations Contribute to Improved Revenues for Rosendin Electric.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA (October 23, 2015) — Rosendin Electric, one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, was ranked third by revenue on the 2015 list of Top 50 Electrical Contractors compiled by Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M) Magazine. Rosendin Electric was the only privately held electrical contractor to rank in the top four in revenue.

Rosendin Electric was among 10 contractors on the EC&M list to post annual gains of 15 percent or more in 2014. Much of the growth is attributed to economic recovery, since overall revenue from electrical and telecommunications projects climbed from $15.7 billion in 2013 to $21.8 billion in 2014. Regional markets where Rosendin Electric has a strong presence, such as San Francisco and Silicon Valley, have seen resurgence in new construction in 2014 and 2015 due to pent up demand. Rosendin Electric also had a variety of projects in the industries that demonstrated the strongest growth – healthcare, data center, power, education, and manufacturing.

In addition to increasing their volume of construction projects, Rosendin Electric continues to be a pioneer amongst peers in the development of technology to improve operational efficiency. Rosendin Electric was one of the first electrical contractors to equip project managers, superintendents, and field supervision with tablets to allow them to review project specs and diagrams, clock workers in and out, manage the supply chain, and much more. The use of sophisticated materials tracking software, for example, supports just-in-time delivery of essential materials to the job site to eliminate construction downtime. In addition, Rosendin Electric provides its employees with comprehensive documentation and hands-on training, as well as webinars and video clips to improve efficiency and safety in the field, all of which contributes to improved efficiency and reduced costs.

“There are so many ways that technology has helped us to become more productive,” Sam Lamonica, CIO of Rosendin Electric, told EC&M. “We now have tools to help us with everything from estimating to modeling to prefabrication. The benefits are just so wide-ranging.”

Rosendin Electric’s Diya Peter Wins 2015 Women in Construction Award

Constructech Recognizes Operations Applications Team Leader for Her Role in Bringing New Technology to All Rosendin Electric Regions.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA (September 22, 2015) — Rosendin Electric, one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, is proud to announce that Diya Peter, Operations Applications Lead for the company, has been recognized by Constructech Magazine with a 2015 Women In Construction Award. The Award is presented each year to the most influential women shaping the construction industry.

Ms. Peter was selected as one of a select group of women who are having an impact on construction. In her role as Operations Applications Lead, Ms. Peter has been responsible for the design, development, and deployment of all applications used by Rosendin Electric’s Field and Operations team. Much of her responsibility includes implementing new technology to Rosendin Electric’s regional offices as well as field training. Most recently, she has been implementing a new time-tracking application designed for field payroll and time management, and deploying construction project management platforms companywide.

“Diya is an evangelist for new ideas and new technologies and has been instrumental in bringing the latest applications to the field,” said Sam Lamonica, CIO of Rosendin Electric. “Her experience and passion have been instrumental in gaining the confidence of our field personnel and regional managers and getting them to embrace the latest technology tools.”

Ms. Peter has more than seven years of experience in developing and managing IT systems for the construction industry and she serves as a mentor to other women, drawing from her extensive experience in IT and construction to counsel them on future career opportunities. She is also active with an industry-related CIO Scholarship Fund, which has been tasked with starting a Young Professionals Group to support MIS students.

“I am honored to receive a Women in Construction Award,” said Ms. Peter. “Women are still a minority in the construction industry, and this award not only speaks to the value of my contribution, but it honors all of the women who are changing the face of construction.”

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women only make up 8.9 percent of the construction workforce, and even a smaller percentage contributes to construction technology. Constructech’s Women in Construction awards honor those women who are not only contributors to the construction industry, but also whose passion and leadership are shaping the future of construction.

Rosendin Electric Receives 2015 Safety Excellence Award from National Electrical Contractors Association

NECA Awards Rosendin Electric for Its Exemplary Safety Performance.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA (June 14, 2015) — Rosendin Electric, one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, has received the 2015 Safety Excellence Award, one of the highest honors for workplace safety, from the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).

Every year, NECA recognizes member companies for their outstanding safety performance during the previous calendar year and rewards those companies that achieve the highest safety score. The cumulative score is based on points for the lowest injury and illness rates and the insurance industry’s Experience Modification Rate (EMR).

“On behalf of NECA, I would like to commend Rosendin Electric, Inc., for achieving the 2015 Safety Excellence award. Your commitment to safety raises your company’s standards…we congratulate you on this achievement. This award reflects your dedication to following the industry’s highest safety standards,” noted John M. Grau, Chief Executive Officer of NECA.

The same data is shared with field supervision and project management for safety monitoring and administration. The company has also added a toll-free number that employees can call to share their safety concerns. Calls can be anonymous or callers can leave a name and number for callback.

As part of their commitment to continuously improve, Rosendin Electric has also begun training its operations management team to receive Safety Trained Supervisor for Construction (STS-C) certification through the America Society of Safety Engineers. The company’s goal is to have all Project Managers and Division Managers STS-C certified.

Woodworth will head up the new Renewable Energy Group. David Lincoln will continue his role as Director of Solar Operations and Nate Williams will remain Division Manager for Wind Power. Duncan Frederick remains in his position as Director of Marketing, Energy Services, overseeing business development for the company’s Caribbean and Latin American markets while also driving Rosendin Electric’s distributed generation integrated energy solutions initiative. Glenn Patterson will be relocating from Rosendin Electric’s Oregon regional office as Preconstruction Manager for Energy Storage. The Rosendin Electric Renewable Energy Group will have its headquarters in Rosendin Electric’s regional office in La Palma, California.

Rosendin Electric has been providing wind power services for more than a decade and has installed over 10,000 megawatts (MW) of clean wind energy throughout the United States.

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.

Rosendin Electric Wins a Gold Vision Award from Constructech for New Mobile Material and Tool Management App

Rosendin Electric Recognized for Harnessing Mobile Computing Technology to Automate Material and Tool Management from the Job Site.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA (October 15, 2014) — Rosendin Electric, the nation’s largest private electrical contractor and an employee-owned company, today announced the company has received the Gold Constructech Vision Award in the Specialty Contractor: Electrical Work category. The award was recently announced in Redwood City, California, following Constructech magazine’s Technology Day.

The Constructech Vision Awards acknowledge companies that have stayed up-to-date on the latest trends and products in order to make decisions that have helped their businesses succeed and thrive. Rosendin Electric was selected for a Gold Vision Award for developing a new mobile app that works with the Autodesk® BIM 360™ Field platform to streamline material and tool management for field personnel.

Rather than manually listing materials or equipment and generating paper or email requisitions, the Material and Tool Management App allows the field team to use mobile devices to order conduit, wire, fixtures, and other materials. The requisition is automatically routed for approval and fulfillment by purchasing, the equipment yard, Tool Manager, or other departments. The App is designed to check inventory before generating a purchase order and every order has a QR code that tracks the materials from shipping to the final installation location. The App has even been extended to support Rosendin Electric’s pre-fabrication unit where assemblies are built, coded for tracking, and shipped to the job site.

With the deployment of the Material and Tool Management App, Rosendin Electric has been able to dramatically reduce the time required to process materials and equipment orders. It has also reduced shipping and receiving errors and provides excellent materials tracking. Furthermore, the App has been designed to integrate with the existing document repository software and mobile technology already in use so no additional software or training were required.

“We have found that using handheld devices on the job site has revolutionized the way we work, and receipt of a Gold Vision Award is validation of the company’s innovation and technological achievements,” said Sam Lamonica, Vice President and CIO for Rosendin Electric. “We decided to create this app in-house since we better understood our requirements, and our team was able to acquire the skills needed for mobile app design and development so we didn’t have to restructure our IT Development Group. Now that we have the knowledge, we can continue to untether our field personnel, building apps for other business applications so users can access them from the job site.”

Rosendin Electric also received a Gold Constructech Vision Award in the category of Specialty Contractor: Electrical Work in 2011 and 2012.

Solar Power World Ranks Rosendin Electric Number 3 in List of Top 400 Solar Contractors

Rosendin Electric Continues to Rise in the Annual Rankings of the Best Solar Contractors in North America.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, Calif. (September 13, 2014) — Rosendin Electric, the nation’s largest private electrical contractor and an employee-owned company, has earned the third place ranking in Solar Power World’s list of the Top 400 Solar Contractors in North America. The publication also ranked Rosendin Electric number one among the top 100 solar contractors in California; number two among the top 50 solar specialists in engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC); and number three among the top 25 utility solar contractors.

Solar Power World compiles an annual list that ranks solar contractors throughout North America based on a variety of criteria, including number of megawatts installed for the year and specific markets served (e.g. utility, residential, or commercial). To date, Rosendin Electric installed solar systems capable of generating 478 megawatts (MW) to make the company number three in North America.

In congratulating Rosendin Electric, Frank Andorka, Editorial Director of Solar Power World, wrote, “Only a tiny fraction of the nation’s companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent excellence, particularly in the difficult economic environment of the past few years. This achievement truly puts you in rarified company.”

Rosendin Electric’s Solar Division specializes in installing utility-grade and distributed generation (DG) solar projects. The company designs and builds mid- to large-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, including substation design and installation, prefabrication, energy storage systems, and ancillary systems. Rosendin Electric’s Solar Division has installed PC systems for commercial, hospitals, schools, universities, and government facilities as well as utility-grade solar farms. Project sizes range from 100 kW to more than 200 MW. And Rosendin Electric performs more than 85 percent of its own EPC, which mitigates risk for investors and makes contracts more viable for financing since the company maintains total control over solar project deliverables.

“Ranking number three out of the top 400 North American contractors is a real milestone for our solar group,” said David Lincoln, Director of Solar Operations for Rosendin Electric. “We are now installing utility-grade solar systems across North America, as well as in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Our growing reputation and EPC capabilities continue to bring in new clients who see the value of having Rosendin Electric on their team.”

Rosendin Electric Sponsors Safe Kids’ Car Seat Inspection

Rosendin Electric and Safe Kids Collaborate on San Jose Event to Promote Car Seat Safety for Silicon Valley Children.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA (July 18, 2014) — Rosendin Electric, the nation’s largest private electrical contractor and an employee-owned company, is sponsoring a free child car seat safety fitting and inspection with Safe Kids (http://www.safekids.org/coalition/safe-kids-california), the global organization dedicated to promoting children’s safety. The car seat inspection is scheduled to take place at the Kohl’s parking lot at 2323 McKee Road, San Jose, August 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Statistics show that a correctly installed car seat can prevent injury or death to a child in 73 percent of automobile accidents; however, four out of every five child car seats are improperly installed. Safe Kids is committed to promoting child safety around the world, including organizing safety fitting and inspection events for parents.

Members of the California Highway Patrol, as well as the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, will be on hand for the August event to conduct inspections and demonstrate the proper use of car seats. Replacement seats will be provided, when appropriate, at no charge, while supplies last. The safety fitting and inspection is open to anyone who wants to ensure their car seats are installed correctly.

“We are delighted to be able to help Safe Kids fund and organize this safety inspection for parents,” said Aaron Muffi, Safety Manager at Rosendin Electric. “With financial help from Aldridge Electric and Bay Tool and Supply we were able to purchase new car seats, tents, and coolers for the event. Rosendin Electric has received national and local recognition for our on-the-job and at-the-office Safety Program, so this is a great way to carry our message to the community and help save children’s lives at the same time.”

This is the second time that Rosendin Electric has sponsored with Safe Kids. Last October Rosendin Electric worked with Safe Kids to sponsor a similar event where they were able to help 53 families, including inspecting child car seats and replacing 23 faulty seats.
