Congratulations to Corbins Electric, selected as ENR Southwest’s Subcontractor of the Year.

The award coincides with the Top Specialty Contractors ranking appearing in the September issue of ENR Southwest. This is the first year that ENR Southwest, or our former publication Southwest Contractor, has selected a Subcontractor of the Year, and we are thrilled to be able to shine a positive spotlight on a sector of construction that is sometimes overshadowed by larger firm types.
Previously announced awards in 2011 include Salt River Project as ENR Southwest’s Owner of the Year; AECOM as Design Firm of the Year, and DPR Construction as GC of the Year.

Corbins Electric was among four finalists for the award. Other finalists were Jack B. Henderson Construction Co., Midstate Mechanical and Walters & Wolf. The ENR Regionals editorial staffed voted on the winners based on the survey data we received and from publicly available information.

All of the finalists saw healthy revenue increases in 2010, which was uncommon in a year in which so many firms struggled to stay afloat due to the prolonged recession. The finalists also fulfilled a strong commitment to social responsibility – from donating time and money for worthy causes to taking a leading role in sustainability.

Corbins Electric, with offices in Phoenix and Albuquerque, managed to increase revenue by 22% in 2010 over the previous year by forming great partnerships with general contractors and by growing a sustainable division at just the right time when the solar industry began exploding in the Southwest. The electrical contractor has also shown a strong commitment to safety throughout its 36 years serving the Southwest.
