)-- Rosendin Electric (www.rosendin.com), the nation’s largest private electrical contractor and a 100-percent employee-owned company, today announced that four of its commercial construction projects received honors from California Construction magazine, including Best Overall Project and three Best of 2010 awards. In all, Rosendin Electric projects garnered five awards in four categories, including Best Overall Project, Best Government/Public Building project, Best Transportation Project, and two Healthcare awards for Best Project and an Award of Merit.
The Mineta San Jose International Airport Terminal Area Improvement Program was singled out as both the winner in the Transportation category and the Best Overall Project. The $1.3 billion San Jose International Airport project included more than $100 million in electrical work. Rosendin Electric was responsible for installing new power systems for Terminals A and B, a new security system, a new baggage handling system, telecommunications, a security camera system, lighting controls, as well as all the power systems, lighting, and traffic controls systems for the airport roadway.
As part of the Mineta Airport project, Rosendin Electric provided wiring for the new 1.8 million square-foot rental care center, including the 1.12 megawatt photovoltaic solar (PV) electric system on the roof. Canadian Solar recently honored the Rosendin Electric team with a Grand Prize for their PV work on the airport rental car center. The new Terminal B Concourse also received LEED® Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for sustainability features such as occupancy lighting sensors, a programmable lighting control system, and “smart” heating and cooling systems.
In the Government/Public Building category, the winning project was the San Joaquin County Administration Building in Stockton, which consolidated several support and service departments into a new, more efficient, user-friendly facility. The design/build project included installation of the county court data center on the third floor, complete with a generator backup system. The Administration Building was named Project of the Year by the American Public Works for structures between $25 million and $75 million, and it also has received LEED Gold certification.
In the Healthcare category, the Laguna Honda Replacement Hospital in San Francisco was named winner. This project was managed by Turner Construction, and Rosendin Electric was subcontracted for the electrical build-out of this new 1,200-bed facility as well 140 assisted living units. Laguna Honda is the first green-certified hospital in California, having received Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council in June.
The El Camino Hospital in Mountain View, California, also received an Award of Merit from California Construction. Rudolph and Sletten was the contractor on this $470 million project, and Rosendin Electric was responsible for all the electrical design/build, including installation of a network services infrastructure that ties the entire 250,000-square-foot facility together into a single “smart” hospital. The facility includes a number of hospital information management innovations, such as bedside computers with real-time medical records processing and electronic beds with built-in translators in 22 languages.
“All successful construction projects are a team effort, and we were delighted to have made our contribution to some of the most successful public projects completed in California this year,” said Larry Beltramo, President and COO of Rosendin Electric.
California Construction magazine selected this year’s winners from more than 135 nominated projects with the help of an independent jury of industry experts.
