San Jose, California-based electrical contractor Rosendin is opening a new office in Boise, Idaho, the company announced on Monday.
Dustin McIntosh, senior project manager for Rosendin, will lead projects and regional business development at the Boise office.
The company cited increased demand for high-tech infrastructure as one reason behind the move, as the region continues to appeal to large technology, commercial and healthcare companies.
“We are pleased to be part of the region’s expansion as it continues to develop economically and structurally with infrastructure projects that shape its future,” said Robert John, division manager at Rosendin, in the release.
On top of the expansion, the electrical subcontractor also partnered with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 291 to offer career training and apprenticeships at the IBEW’s Southwestern Idaho Electrical Training Center, and with the ACE Mentorship program to educate high school students about jobs in the trades, according to the release.
Rosendin works on a breadth of builds within its portfolio. Notable projects include a data center in Chandler, Arizona, the Chase Center in San Francisco and the Townsite Solar Facility in Boulder City, Nevada.The company ranked 10th on ENR’s most recent specialty contractors list with $2.4 billion in revenue.
Rosendin isn’t the only company to expand its reach — across the country, general contractors have moved to set up new offices, taking advantage of high demand in the construction industry, ranging from industrial construction to mixed-use developments.
