Hellman Electric is a leader in innovation, both in the work they do and how it is delivered. Design-Build assignments are quickly becoming a construction delivery system of choice, because of its ability to produce high quality construction and control construction costs at the same time.
Hellman Electric is an experienced Design-Build contractor both as a subcontractor and as a prime contractor. The firm recently won a major prime contracting Design-Build assignment for MTA Bridges & Tunnels and has been a subcontractor on several additional Design-Build contracts.
An Innovate Design-Builder
Hellman Electric has been involved in several Design-Build projects for more than seven years. Hellman Electric was selected as the electrical contractor and design participant for a Design-Build runway extension project at LaGuardia Airport in 2012.
This airport project challenged the Hellman Electric team to design a unique method of maintaining the critical aviation landing system beacons and radar systems that were in the way of the new runway. Hellman Electric’s solutions were successful and a testament to the in-house experience and can-do ability that the team possesses.
New Design-Build Assignments
In 2017, Hellman Electric was awarded a Design-Build assignment for the installation of a facility-wide Electronic Monitoring and Detection System (EMDS) at two major bridge facilities in New York City as the lead team partner. This project marked the first time a Design-Build project was awarded to a craft trade contractor who proposed the best design plan while offering a competitive budget.
This project requires a ground up, complete design for construction purposes while simultaneously challenging the installer with the integration of a variety of different systems to come together in one coherent operation while being seamlessly deployed into the owner’s main system without interruption.
Hellman Electric is currently the electrical contractor participant for a Design-Build project for the complete deck replacement of three arterial bridges in New York City for the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). This project will affect several electrical services in the way of the construction. Traffic operation, roadway lighting and electrical services across these bridges are critical and must be maintained throughout the construction process.
