Recent Projects

D&S had a thorough working knowledge of the project from the outset, has been on top of product submittals to avoid any delays in procuring product for the project. They have a robust leadership team on site and excellent managerial support for the people in the field. Because of the size of the academic building, three floors consisting of over 280,000SF, the need for sub-contractor coordination is paramount. D&S has staffed the job with more than ample staffing and has been the leader in getting work accomplished and moving the project ahead under the direction of the general contractor. 

I continue to be impressed with D&S Electrical Contractors, their ability to get the job done and the spirit of cooperation and partnership they bring to the job.
