As with the construction of any modern mega-project – HVAC controls, cable installation, underground wiring, and lighting control systems – customers, contractors and developers continue to hire the Powering America Team to insure a quality process and a professional result.

Who better to work on this high-profile commercial electrical project than the Powering America, NECA-IBEW team?

Many attributes distinguish the Powering America team, but a major one is the ‘Code of Excellence’; an agreement between labor and the contractor that all aspects of the project will be upheld to the highest standard. So inspiring was the code, that the other trades adopted their own version leading to the entire project being done under a new ‘Code of Distinction’, the first ever of its kind.
