How We Operate

With Capitol Electric, you get top-notch, professional work from qualified electricians. Meet the Department Managers


Our Operations

Our methods of operation allow customers to be constantly informed about the progress of a job, ensuring that the work is done right, on time and on budget.

Computer Estimating System
At Capitol Electric, we utilize the latest technology for project estimating. This means, that whenever we bid on a project, Capitol can provide you with an itemized breakdown of that bid for your use and convenience. Once we begin the project, this computerized estimate serves as an efficient method of quality control.

Cutting Edge Design Tools
Our full design build service includes computer generated lighting design, lighting design layouts, and an efficiency analysis. We use Auto Cad and BIM for our electrical design build.

Personal Approach to Service
Our job is to make your job easier. To keep the work process streamlined, Capitol Electric provides an estimator as the project manager and primary liaison with the customer. The estimator initiates the project, then follows through with project management. In this way, the customer enjoys the benefit of dealing with one company representative who is always updated on the job’s progress, and who has – or will find – the answers.

All our estimators are extremely detail-oriented and dedicated to accuracy in completing your project.


Workplace Safety is Priority

With Capitol Electric, you get top-notch, professional work from qualified electricians. At Capitol Electric we strive to maintain the highest levels of workplace safety possible.


Capitol Electric Safety

All of our electricians and field professionals receive continuing education and training through the NECA/ IBEW48 Training Center.

To ensure the safety of our employees, supervisors and customers we are consistently rigorous in adhering to the latest safety codes and policies, both internally and externally. To achieve this our safety committee conducts monthly meetings to discuss safety issues. Our electricians also work closely with General Contractors and participate in weekly job site safety meetings. This ensures that the electricians working on your projects are kept up-to-date on any safety concerns.

In addition to these activities we have a comprehensive safety policy that details our safety practices and programs. If you are concerned about safety in your next project, we are happy to provide you with the details of our programs and certifications of our electrical workers.
