Keeping Energy Flowing

Electrical systems are vital to the comfort, safety, and productivity of every person who lives or works in a building. In today’s complex, hi-tech, fast-paced world, a building’s electrical system has grown beyond the capabilities of many traditional electrical contractors. McKinstry has the diverse technical experience and customer focus that makes us uniquely qualified to provide superior service in a multitude of environments. Our electrical services range from system design, installation, and testing to long-term service and maintenance. Equipped with the design and estimating staff to affect and implement large, complex projects, our team has decades of industry experience delivering the highest caliber projects.


McKinstry’s diverse electrical expertise is delivered by a superb field crew of union electricians that receive regular training on the most current safety and technical skills. They are supported by a fully-licensed engineering, estimating and project management staff that is committed to continuously improving our ability to provide superior service. Our competencies include:

Design-Build Electrical Construction

Our team has the engineering and construction management resources to deliver complex, integrated projects that maximize value for the client without compromising quality.


Our electrical pre-fab shop leverages our field team by streamlining productivity and helping to meet aggressive project schedules. We also have the capability to build assemblies that meet the standards of a nationally recognized testing laboratory.

Special Projects

Recognizing that working in occupied premises demands the highest attention to project schedule and consideration for the tenant, McKinstry’s electrical special projects team emphasizes quick response and customer satisfaction to ensure our impact on tenants is a positive one.

Electrical Service

Electrical disruptions grind facility operations to a halt and jeopardize tenant satisfaction. Our preventive maintenance and 24-hour emergency repair services provide access to expertise and resources for any planned or emergency maintenance need.


Our approach begins with proven engineering expertise in lean and sustainable design, pre-construction, and electrical installations. In collaboration with the client, we develop a thorough understanding of their business requirements to establish the best framework for the design in the early phases of the project to save energy, eliminate waste, and decrease costs.

As a full service, integrated design/build electrical and low voltage contractor we offer a complete range of in-house expertise and capabilities for projects both large and small. By offering all of these services under one roof, we provide our clients with a single-source of accountability for every project, fewer scope gaps, lower costs, and guaranteed outcomes.
