Stellar Service Shines Bright In LA
Whether you’re star gazing in Beverly Hills or taking in the commanding views of the entire LA basin from the world-renowned Griffith Observatory, the City of Angels always has something new and exciting in store. A lot has changed since Al Berg opened his doors in 1946, but Bergelectric’s most established operation is still as energized today about the opportunities the Los Angeles Region has to offer as Al Berg was back then. From the $175-million renovation of the historic Wilshire Boulevard Temple, whose unique features were originally funded by Hollywood movie moguls, to a supporting role on facilities for the LA Metro Division—Bergelectric’s “best-in-class” performance always takes center stage
Internationally renowned higher-education and medical institutions such as USC, City of Hope, Cedars Sinai and Loma Linda University Medical Center have also looked to Berg for their electrical-contracting and service needs. Over the years, the Berg LA region has matured as a leader in the electrical-construction industry, offering cutting-edge technology and the highest level of service in a diverse marketplace. The field personnel and office professional that call LA home including many of the core leaders who have served the company for decades, are guided by Vice President Rob Moreno. The depth of resources and sizeable volume of work generated annually are reflected in the four divisions that provide specialized market-driven service to Bergelectric clients under Moreno’s leadership.
- LA Commercial Projects Division, under supervision of Darren Murray, is currently focused on performing cell-tower upgrades and installing wireless technology—from cellular LTE, 3G, 4G, 5G; microwave or other technologies that are on the horizon for such clients as AT&T and Sprint.
- Dean Shipcott, LA Major Projects Division Manager, is responsible for the largest and most complex work that Bergelectric performs. Due to the size and nature of these assignments in markets including bioscience, military or justice, these projects tend to be multi-million, multi-year undertakings such as UCLA’s $104-million Teaching and Learning Center for Health Sciences.
- The LA Service Division, under the direction of Hans Erickson, is committed to long-term maintenance contracts service Berg’s post construction customers, as well as emergency-service and specialty-response work for such clients as Boeing, Loma Linda University Medical Center and USC. Extending beyond its traditional borders, this division also heads up contracts like the lighting retrofit for Hawaii’s largest shopping venue, Ala Moana Center in Honolulu.
- Doug Crumby, Vice President and LA Special Projects Division Manager, is a well-seasoned professional with over 40 years of electrical-industry experience. While his focus is primarily on tenant improvements (TI) and smaller fast-track projects, the types of clients served through the Special Projects Division cross all market sectors and project types, such as AAA’s critical 24/7 data center and Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital’s central-plant expansion.
For nearly 70 years, a strong base of clients in the LA Region—from bioscience, education, healthcare, justice and military facilities to commercial developments, wireless communications and large-scale ongoing electrical-service customers—have all come to count on Bergelectric as an integral partner in their success—and will continue to do so for decades to come.
