McMillan Electric has partnered on several construction projects for Northern California companies.
From a wide range of electrical services to data communications, security systems, and audio visual integration, McMillan Electric has your business covered. Founded in 1965, this Bay Area company provides construction services to a slew of businesses in the region. Google, Twitter, Github, Verizon, Ubisoft, and Starbucks are just a few that McMillan Electric has helped realize construction goals.
The seemingly endless services are a differentiator for the company in this industry, but its level of customer satisfaction is what keeps the big brands coming back.
McMillan Electric’s rapid response, clear communication, impeccable workmanship, and forward-thinking technology has helped the company maintain a spot at the forefront of the industry since its foundation.
Its teams consistently strive to improve safety and strictly adhere to industry standard best practices in conduct and workmanship, knowing it leads to efficiency, productivity, and ultimately cost-savings for its partners.
And McMillan’s sustainability awareness led it to be a partner on the first LEED Platinum Certified project in California. Its in-house team of LEED accredited professionals is complemented by its solutions in automated building management systems, lighting control, and energy efficiency solutions.
Construction experts like McMillan Electric help the biggest organizations in the world keep the lights on and the ideas flowing. Take a look at just a handful of projects the company has completed.
New Twitter Headquarters
Twitter and McMillan’s relationship began with the company’s first build-out project of an office for the social media platform. When Twitter relocated to the Art Deco SFMart building in San Francisco, McMillan was invited to bid on, and eventually won, the project for electrical construction for the large tenant improvement project.
It was a huge undertaking, including the 240,000 square foot remodel on three floors, preservation of the historic interior finishes, custom wireless lighting control, and much more. The project went so well that Twitter invited McMillan for the next phase of expansion.
Union Bank’s Ongoing Expansion
Union Bank has around 400 retail, national, and international commercial branches in the world, and McMillan is the preferred vendor for its location in Northern California. The construction company has provided new category 6 structured cabling, high-capacity connections for ATM machines, and design engineering for the project.
McMillan’s data communications division recently assisted Union Bank’s 200,000-square-foot remodel of a high-rise commercial space in the Bay Area. This included a new IT infrastructure with fiber optic solutions, high-capacity connections, and PBX extensions and set programming, among other construction components.
McMillan demonstrates its impeccable customer service record with this project. To accommodate banker’s hours, its installation and service teams often work after hours and weekends. And to allow Union Bank’s branches to quickly access service, the company established a schedule of tasks with set pricing to control costs even in emergency situations.
Award-Winning Design for The Lending Club
The Lending Club’s improvement project of its headquarters at 71 Stevenson Street in San Francisco has been nominated for an International Interior Design Association design award.
The project for this growing financial services client was budget conscious, but the design called for a clean look—and the building’s new high-end lighting standard called for individually addressable Lutron Quantum fixtures. To complete the job, McMillan Electric got creative by partnering with Brereton Architects, Source Construction, and East Bay manufacturer Finelite.
With its partners, McMillan designed, manufactured, and installed custom 70D Lutron Quantum fixtures in four weeks, created an open feel out of low clearance space, and met Title 24 standards for energy efficient lighting with remote control.
The Lending Club then invited McMillan Electric back to bid on and design/build another seven floors of T.I., totaling 135,000 square feet.
McMillan’s in-house technology upgrades to virtual documentation and its BIM (business information management) system have helped the brand cut printing costs by 85 percent. These cost savings, like every efficiency in the company, mean more ways to pass savings onto its clients and partners.
These continuous saving commitments have led to McMillan moving into new facilities a year and a half ago, and the ongoing growth of its low-voltage data department. So what’s next for the brand? As always, incredible customer service in the construction industry.
