VECA's highest priority is making its safety program the best in the industry. VECA's dedication to safety transcends our internal commitment to protect our team members and the job sites they work on - it is illustrated by our participation in steering committees and safety associations, as well as by our consistent field safety management, a dedicated, full time corporate safety director, and active in-house training.
One of the differentiating factors that sets VECA apart from our competitors is our approach of complete partnership in a project.
VECA employs a more comprehensive contracting option, the “Negotiated Design/Build”. Through this process VECA is involved in a larger scope of the project, providing a single source of responsibility for design and construction.
The Design-Build structure enables VECA’s clients to leverage our expertise across every facet of a project, creating a valuable partnership that positively affects the bottom line.
Advantages of Design/Build include:
Using the latest technology and tools to map out projects helps us work better with our clients, as well as other participants involved. Our dedicated Virtual Design Team utilizes Revit, AutoCAD, Navisworks, BIM 360, Trimble and 3D Point Cloud Scanners.
This allows us to work with project owners, architects and engineers to deliver accurate plans before and after construction. Our expertise identifies efficient installation opportunities by "Building it before we Build it", effectively saving time and money in the field at the point of install.
By coordinating projects with our UL Listed Fabrication shops, we are able to build at the highest quality of electrical craftsmanship while lowering costs, limiting waste, and accelerating our project schedules. This creates value for our customers.
Our Fabrication shops allow us to work safer and smarter in dedicated work spaces streamlined for productivity and efficiency. Because fabrication takes place offsite, projects have multiple tasks running in parallel, allowing the job to progress seamlessly from preparation to installation. Jobsite footprints and onsite storage are reduced through our just-in-time deliveries and lean manufacturing methods. We have the means and experience to engineer custom solutions to our customer’s needs, enabling an agile and adaptive project.
Fabrication empowers our projects through planning, safety, effectiveness, efficiency, and the quality our customers deserve.
VECA takes great pride in combining principles of sustainability and energy efficiency at every available opportunity. The strict guidelines of LEED inevitably result in constructing a building that brings the best value to the owner, occupants, community, and environment.
VECA incorporates an integrated design approach for buildings with LEED Certification goals. We have the expertise to meet any LEED requirement. Our team is always researching new methods and materials that can increase energy efficiency, durability, and reduce waste. VECA has successfully completed over 70 LEED projects, throughout Washington State, including several landmark LEED and Green Building projects.
