Design-Build Electrical Service in metro New Orleans


Working with owners and architects to design and build custom electrical systems


Design/Build is an innovative approach to the electrical contractor’s role in the development and execution of a new building. When the electrical contractor is providing design/build services, they are involved in the building project from the beginning, which has several advantages for all parties involved.


Why choose a design / build electrical contractor?

Save Time


We coordinate the efforts and needs of owners, architects, and contractors to streamline the building process. Additionally, this initial coordination eliminates nearly all mid-project changes and the time associated with executing them. Finally, with Marvin Electric serving as the single point of contact, communication between concerned parties is easier and faster, leading to a more time-efficient operation.



Save Money


According to one survey of electrical contractors, when they have not been involved in the design portion of the project, they have to implement either minor or significant changes in the plans they are given 70% of the time. Eliminating these changes eliminates the costs associated with them, both in the form of man-hours wasted and the replacement parts or equipment.



Higher Quality


Using Marvin Electric to design your electric system before the project has begun will give our staff the opportunity to suggest the ideal products for each part of the system. This will lead to a higher quality of components that are best suited to their function and to work within the system as a whole. Quality is also improved when mid-project changes do not occur because each part is carefully designed to work within the whole rather than to patch up a specific problem.
