Electrical Connection IBEW/NECA in the News

As our IBEW/NECA projects become more complex, many of our contractors are fortifying their pre-fabrication capabilities.  PayneCrest Electric, Inc. recently debuted its state-of-the-art, 30,000-square-foot pre-fabrication facility.  It unites its 30-member engineering division with pre-fab operations to ensure exacting specifications are met for all types of construction modules. “Our jobs are getting bigger and we’ve continuously invested in engineering solutions and ways to optimize the skills, productivity and safety of our workforce,” noted Ryan Freeman, president, PayneCrest.  “Co-locating engineering with prefabrication more effectively connects engineering to field installations.  Our engineers can see their 3D modeling designs unfold in the prefabrication process and get critical feedback from field personnel to refine for optimal performance.” Learn more.
