Our Analysis of Your Plans Helps You Save Money and Improve Operations

We analyze the design criteria of your project based on your architectural drawings or building plan. Based on our experience, we identify any potential problems or issues to be addressed. We determine special requirements or conditions that could increase or reduce the job cost.

Whether your project is a redesign or new construction, we often are able to make cost saving suggestions or recommend design options that improve your building’s operation. We invoke cost controls on every job and maintain a detailed job tracking system.

Our Bids Are Accurate and Competitive

At Star-Lo Electric, we do more than just bid on a project. We get involved early in the design process to make sure your plans are accurate, cost effective, and maximize your electrical resources efficiently.

We use the Accubid estimating software program. This program is customized based on our industry knowledge, experience, and productivity record. We detail exactly what we spend on each labor unit, materials, indirect costs, and equipment. Our extensive database allows us to compare new projects with past projects to determine costs and time frames. This system also ensures we bill project owners accurately and on time.

Computerized Construction Drawings Provide Flexibility and Quick Response Time

Although contract drawings establish what the client wants in terms of equipment, functional requirements, and general layout, most electrical contract drawings do not include all the details.

We use AutoCAD 2005 to plot, draw, and help design complex electrical plans. This allows us to provide accurate, extremely detailed information. And, it produces clear easy-to-understand construction drawings for our field forces. We can easily import architectural or engineering drawings you supply into our system.

Star-Lo Electric has been a front-runner in the use of BIM technology. The utilization of 3D modeling concepts in the construction and operation of a facility builds more productive projects. Coordinating this technology with other trades produces a “collision free” electrical system.
