At Northern Electric, Inc. we understand the importance of every phase in a project, from the beginning stages of design through the final turnover process to the owner. During the design phase our knowledge and expertise can be utilized from conceptual estimates, budgets, design-build and valued engineering.

Developing a conceptual estimate is part art and part science. Our estimators take a “big picture” viewpoint, looking for long-range solutions rather than shortsighted projections, which will likely cost the customer more in the future. Our estimators have honed their craft, and backed by many years of experience they base their estimates on real-world examples and past project experience.


budgets can be tedious, but the financial element of any project can never be underestimated or overlooked. Due to time constraints and fast tracked designs, often key elements are left unturned. Upfront constructability efforts during the design phase can result in cost-effective construction means and methods which reduce the overall project cost and reduce costly unexpected changes.

We understand that the goal of a design-build project estimate is to identify the true costs of construction, and to aid an owner or developer in determining if the cost is feasible. Identifying the proper scope of work is a crucial element to this process. We are consistently able to design projects which meet or exceed the customer’s expectations for today and the future.

Our team has worked together with building owners, contractors and other engineering firms to find the best value by increasing efficiencies and reducing costs of any construction project. Our goal is to offer our clients ideas and options to simplify the construction process, remove unnecessary expenditures, and save our clients time and money. We can provide alternative layouts, assist in identifying constructability issues, provide labor and material cost reduction plans, options to minimize schedule delays, and a project management team that will support the construction efforts, all of which reduces labor and material costs.

Our team of State of Wisconsin Certified Designers, Master Electricians and experienced professionals can perform this creative analysis of any projects construction requirements and strive to achieve the highest quality installations at the best functional combination of cost, reliability and performance on time and within budget.
