RK Electrical Establishes RK as one of Colorado’s Few Full MEP Contractors

Feb 17, 2018

Denver, CO – February 14, 2018 – Under the direction of new Vice President and General Manager, Rob Cheney, RK Electrical is rapidly expanding. With the addition of the RK Electrical division, RK has grown to become one of the only full-service mechanical/electrical/plumbing (MEP) contractors in Colorado. RK Electrical is located at RK’s new 280,000 square foot fabrication and manufacturing facility located in Aurora, Colorado.

RK Electrical was formally established as RK’s seventh business unit in 2015. Since Rob Cheney joined in 2017, RK Electrical has hired over 25 new staff members, most of whom are in newly created roles ranging from Shop Technician to Senior Project Manager. Under Rob’s leadership, RK Electrical has a focused mission to develop innovative solutions that will set a new standard in building and manufacturing performance as well as electrical repair and maintenance services.

Like RK Mechanical, RK’s legacy unit, RK Electrical will also offer preconstruction services, BIM services, design/build services, prefabrication solutions, manufacturing capabilities and facilities services. General contractors, building owners and manufacturing customers can expect them to deliver a progressive approach that will improve projects, products, and building performance.

The business strategy of RK Electrical is to offer advanced electrical contracting and manufacturing services to a select group of general contractor, owner-direct customers and manufactured product providers. The unit provides electrical services, including comprehensive system testing, repairs and maintenance, for all types of commercial, multi-family and industrial facilities.

RK Electrical was originally established to perform electrical repairs and maintenance so that RK could offer more comprehensive facilities services to customers. RK Electrical grew into providing all of the electrical and controls work for all of RK’s manufacturing business units, which include RK Energy (oil and gas), RK Mission Critical and RK Water. RK Electrical now enhances the solutions offered by all RK business units, which also include RK Mechanical and RK Service.

Cheney shared that RK Electrical will continue to evolve by adding a low voltage group very soon. “Low voltage services allow us to provide the full spectrum of electrical services to customers, which will reduce their multiple subcontractor markups and provide a single point of accountability.”
