Electrical Design-Build


Design-build is the method of delivering a

project from start to finish under one entity - James River Electric - works with you, the project owner, to provide electrical design and budget, then electrical installation for your project.

Working directly with you means that we 

maintain a unified flow of work from initial 

concept through completion.  

This single-source capability allows us to reduce job costs and improve scheduling and project management for your project. We are able to 

initiate design and construction activities in tandem.  This greatly increases the success of any 

demanding schedule.



We are a full-service electrical contractor, 

capably performing work on a vast portfolio of projects with contract values ranging from a few hundred dollars to over $1 million.

We approach each project as it were our own. Our professionals provide services that ensure clients can make decisions that provide long term service, sustainability and comfort.

Bids & contracts

At James River Electric we don't believe in charging customers a flat rate. Every job is different, and if your job is a little smaller, it just doesn't seem right to pay the same flat rate you would for a larger job.

That's why we give fully customized quotes for every job after we thoroughly review contract documents and the existing site conditions in order to assess a project and any specific challenges.

Our objective is to give an accurate estimate to complete a project not an unrealistically low price simply to win a bid.  A long term relationship with our customer is our top priority. We know our reputation has been earned one customer at a time and we guard our reputation by continuing to approach each project with this philosophy in mind.
