Innovative Technology Featuring Our Dublin Branch

Larry Nelson, one of Dublin Branch's foreman using PlanGrid on the Table...One way CECI is an INNOVATIVE company is through the use of technology and software programs. An example – the tablet! The innovation of tablet computers have greatly improved the construction industry, and has also improved Larry Nelson’s frustrations. He no longer has to walk back to his trailer, grab his blueprints, walk back to the Superintendent to look at a problem and take notes, then walk back to the trailer, scan the plans, email it to the architect and walk back to the Superintendent. With the tablet, he pulls up the plans on PlanGrid, marks it, and sends it to the architect in a fraction of the time! This “new idea”, “new method” – the tablet, has helped CECI define itself as INNOVATIVE.

Innovation at Collins Electrical

Here at Collins Electrical, we are always looking to be more innovative. Therefore, we truly value when our CECI family can take innovation into their own hands.

So, what does it mean to be innovative?

When we think of innovation, many of us think it requires us to come up with something brand new every time. However, innovation does not always have to be so grand. So, how can you become more innovative?

We believe everyone in our Collins Electrical family can bring something new to the table. How do you innovate?
