Electrical Construction Services
Southern California Edison (SCE)
Rokstad Power was awarded a significant portion of the work under the Electrical Construction Services Contract. This program Includes Tier 2 Distribution service contract, performing both underground and overhead services for SCE over the following regions: Desert, Orange, Metro East, San Jacinto, Rurals and North Coast.
Rokstad Power is one of four Tier 2 contractors awarded the work for this particular contract.
Unique challenges of this project include the following:
- Urban Environment – Rokstad Power serves the Distribution needs for SCE in metropolitan areas with higher than normal commercial and residential work scheduling issues. This presents challenges related to traffic control & permitting before work can commence along with congestion.
- Diversity Spend – The Diversity Spend initiative set forth by the CPUC (California Public Utilities Commission) with a bench mark of 40% (for all generated revenue) to be spent on a DBE company changes the business thoughts on items such as equipment, tools, and sub-contractors.
- Back Office Support – SCE has placed the contractor in a position of responsibility regarding items such as quality, materials, scheduling, tasking, invoice submittals, job close-outs, and reporting. This unique challenge can be circumvented with the proper span of control that leads to higher overheads and back office support.
