D.P. Electric Inc.

After more than two decades, D.P. Electric Inc. says it has established itself as a contractor that Arizona clients can count on. “Our responsiveness and attention to detail has secured lasting relationships with the valley’s leading general contractors and corporations,” the company says.

Based in Tempe, Ariz., D.P. Electric specializes in multiple products and services, including pre-construction services, underground and overhead distribution, temporary power systems, energy efficiency modeling, backup systems and fiber optics. President Daniel J. Puente founded D.P. Electric in 1990.

A longtime veteran of the electrical industry, Puente started the company after working as the general foreman/electrician of another firm. Throughout the years, D.P. Electric has evolved from a sole proprietorship into a corporation. “However, one [aspect] has remained constant: D.P. Electric’s dedication to providing skilled workmanship in the commercial field for many reputable general contractors,” the company says.

This philosophy has earned it an 80 percent rate of repeat business from clients throughout Arizona, with the majority of its projects in Maricopa County. “Clients have come to expect excellence from the initial contact through to the final completion,” D.P. Electric states.

“We enjoy a reputation of dependability even in the most challenging situations,” the company continues. “Satisfied clients – that is how we measure our success.”

High Standards

D.P. Electric’s portfolio includes numerous ground-up projects for many prominent general contractors. According to the company, these include medium- and high-rise buildings, municipal/government buildings, retail centers, banks, medical plazas and office buildings.

The sizes of these projects also have ranged from 5,000 to more than 1 million square feet. The company currently is at work on an upgrade project for Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, which will see the addition of terminals and security modifications.

D.P. Electric says it has previously completed numerous projects at the airport, which is the fifth busiest in the world. “Any work – or company completed work – associated with an international airport is scrutinized and held to extremely high standards of workmanship,” the company says.

“D.P. Electric is very proud to be a part of the Phoenix Sky Harbor expansion and this continuing growth within our state,” the company declares, noting that its work on the project includes structural build-outs, assistance with architectural service projects, and security and fire alarm system upgrades.

A Thriving Market

D.P. Electric’s portfolio also includes tenant improvement work. “The tenant improvement market in the Valley is very important for both Phoenix and D.P. Electric,” the company says, noting that projects of this type require experts and hands-on management.

“Over the last 15 years, we have successfully completed many tenant improvement projects, ranging from a single store within a retail center to complete, multi-floor build outs of many of the Valley’s high rises,” D.P. Electric says. For these projects, the company has served such general contractors as Jokake Construction, Sundt Construction, Weitz Co. and Stevens Leinweber.

“Through D.P. Electric’s proactive team approach with general contractors, owners and/or owner’s representatives, we not only continue to meet the demanding requirements of these projects, but we are frequently asked back by those same organizations when it is once again time to build and grow,” the company says. 

D.P. Electric’s tenant improvement portfolio includes a recent project at the Phoenix Convention Center. “We worked with Caliente Construction to renovate some light fixtures and make other electrical adjustments to the [center],” the company describes.

The Right Resources

D.P. Electric also operates a service division, with technicians who are required to stay up-to-date with code changes. “Our technicians are professional, experienced and highly skilled, which equates to savings of time and money,” the company states.

“We stand behind our work, offering a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee on all work completed,” it continues, adding that it also provides emergency service to its customers 24/7.

“D.P. Electric has the resources to provide [clients] with as many electricians as needed to complete any task – any time of the day or night,” the company says. “We own temporary cable, distribution equipment and generators to support most commercial buildings in case of a temporary outage.”

The division’s recent projects have included providing a room addition at a telephone switch building for Qwest Cottonwood South. Although this may seem like a simple task at first glance, the company says the project required the temporary relocation of the building’s emergency generator and its generator transfer switch control cabinet.

Relocating the emergency generator allowed the back wall of the building to be removed so that the new addition could be attached, D.P. Electric explains. “Once the addition was complete, the generator was moved again to its new location behind the building, and the transfer switch and control cabinets were moved to the new back wall,” the company says.
