Safety and Quality

Over the past 40 years, AltairStrickland has been fundamentally committed to fostering a company-wide safety culture. To live up to this commitment, we invest substantial energy and resources into developing and implementing a detailed, continuously evolving Zero Injury Safety Program.

Constantly Striving for an Injury-Free Environment  

Our obsessive safety culture is evident on every job at every level of our organization. We put in the utmost effort to create an injury-free environment and complete projects not only to the highest quality standards but also the highest standards of safety.

Over the years, this obsession has earned us numerous safety commendations from clients and multiple industry safety awards that are considered some of our organization’s crowning achievements.

Tenets of Safety

We attribute our successful safety record in part to our tenets of safety, which guide our safety program and safety culture.

Through new-hire training, safety meetings, job-site inspections, educational initiatives, and more, we ingrain these tenets into every person we employ. At AltairStrickland, everyone owns his or her own part of our safety culture.

Tenant Build-Out Project Spotlight

Tenant Build-Out Project Highlight

When a large law firm needed to expand and modernize its offices, they called on Gibson Electric for a complete package of electrical contracting services.

During the project, we installed a complete structured-cable system, the highlight of which was a data center build-out and riser providing high-speed interconnectivity to the rest of the office suites.

The facility’s two floors worth of data center space features:

  • Separate and dedicated electrical service and distribution systems
  • Emergency generator
  • Uninterrupted power supply (UPS)
  • N+1 power support

Throughout the entirety of the project, Gibson Electric maintained our client’s strict move-in schedule. The remaining 25-floor build-out included:

  • Two complete high-end conference centers
  • State-of-the-art conferencing ambiance controls
  • Comprehensive electrical installation
    • Voice/data structured systems
    • Life safety systems
    • Lighting fixtures
    • Electrical receptacles
