Branch Pursuits

This week: The Metro Branch!

This week we will be bidding 2 projects. The first is the Stanislaus County CSF Emergency Generator project. This project consists of removing the existing 250KW generator and installing a new 400KW generator. Adam is working his magic to put together a winning bid. The second and final project we have bidding this week is the Los Banos Memory Care Community New Building. This project will be the construction of a new 29,000SF memory care facility with 48 beds and an adult day care facility. Jorge will be leading this project. We wish Adam and Jorge the best of luck! Bid it to win it!

Word of the Week: Perseverance

noun: steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.


Time will continue to pass whether or not you continue to work! Wouldn’t you like to look back in a month and know you spent that time moving closer to your goals?

Collins Selfies

Even though we work hard, we play hard too. Every week, we’ll show off our most important resource: the Collins Electrical staff.

This week, we introduce to you…


Jorge Sahagun (Corporate Estimator) and Dante Rosellini (Front Desk Admin), looking truly picture perfect! Here at Collins we have simply the best- and perhaps the most photogenic- people!
