Gould Electric, one of the largest merit shops in Southern California, located in Poway, celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2011.
“This is a major milestone for us. We are proud to be a part of the construction industry in Southern California,” said Russ Thurman, principal and CEO. “During the past 35 years we have completed an array of diverse projects in all major markets -- educational, retail, entertainment, military, medical, office and recreational. As we continue to build on our legacy of helping to build local communities, we are looking forward to what lies ahead.”
Thurman contributes Gould’s success to building relationships and earning the trust of those they partner with in business. Gould’s philosophy is that every owner and every project deserves the highest quality and most cost effective installation available. This commitment to satisfying their customer extends beyond the completion of the project, and beyond the warranty period.
“At Gould Electric, customer satisfaction has an unlimited warranty,” said Russ.
Some of Gould’s most recent projects that highlight the company’s ability to partner with general contractors include:
* Thomas Jefferson School of Law, opened in January, was a design-assist project located in the East Village of downtown San Diego. Construction partners were Midwest General, Michael Wall Engineering and Bovis LLC.
* The Miramar Regional Confinement Center (The Brig), opened in February, also a design-assist project, is operated by the U.S. Navy at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. The construction partner was Clark Construction.
* The Escondido Police and Fire Headquarters, completed in late 2010, is a state-of-the-art facility that supports both police and fire departments. This project was built using a construction manager delivery method, with Gould serving as the prime contractor for electrical and other related systems.
Gould Electric is experienced in a variety of delivery methods including design-build, design-assist, value engineering and negotiated processes. The company uses state-of-the-art technology to complete projects throughout Southern California and boast an exceptional safety record well below industry standards.
