Tenant buildout construction worker.jpgIn the Greater Chicagoland area, we have an all-encompassing understanding of what’s needed for office build-outs and office building renovations---from single-floor to multi-floor projects.

From the start of a project, Gibson Electric strives to efficiently manage all aspects of the schedule to help keep the project on track.

One way Gibson Electric does this is by assisting the tenant’s general contractors and construction managers to help expedite the permit process.

Gibson Electric’s strong vendor relationships allow for more efficient and accurate procurement. Any equipment that requires long lead times are pre-purchased and quick issuance of submittals and assistance approving material orders help support fast-paced schedules.

Our in-house prefabrication shop also allows for greater control over safety, and helps to reduce the labor hours needed on site by only requiring installers be present at the time of installation. Prefabricating components can help eliminate the need for supervisors and managers.

The Gibson Electric team works quickly and diligently to help clients maintain ongoing operations whenever possible while tenant improvements are underway.

Throughout each project, field supervisors utilize mobile device technology to allow for quick communication of project status, delivery tracking, and punch list completion.

Extensive industry knowledge and experience

Our project managers and field staff are trained extensively on many of today’s complicated lighting and controls products. Among the skills and expertise the team provides include:

  • Understanding the ever-changing lighting control systems and associated conduit/raceway. 
  • Coordinating all low-voltage systems: structured cabling, life safety systems, security, paging, distributed antenna systems (DAS), sound masking, and others.
  • Coordinating raceway and conduit systems, including ladder racks and basket trays, with all associated support systems.
  • Integrating energy efficient lighting control systems that work collaboratively with existing building automation system to help reduce energy costs.
  • Understanding and interpreting specific building requirements while working with building engineers.
  • Working closely with the building engineers and property managers when accessing other tenant floors for coring.

Once the job is completed, Gibson Electric can assist in helping the facility qualify for LEED-CS Silver or higher certification.
