Colorado-based Weifield Group Contracting is one of the first electrical contractors in the region to have completed LEED Platinum and net-zero projects. The firm has done 2.5 million sq ft of LEED projects in total. Its four divisions—service, special projects, construction, and water and infrastructure—generated $76.6 million in revenue during 2017, up from $59.2 million in 2016.
Weifield Group also is a regional leader in the use of prefabrication and virtual-building technology, including LiveCount and Accubid estimating software, BIM 3D dynamic software, Trimble Systems Robotic Stations and others.
The firm does much of its work in the commercial, government and institutional, data center, higher ed, industrial and water infrastructure sectors. Recent completed projects include:
- University of Denver Net-Zero-Energy Home. This project was the Colorado winner in ENR Mountain States' Best Green Project category this year. Weifield worked with 20 University of California-Berkeley students and a dozen DU students as part of a global student competition to design and build a net-zero home. The completed house was later donated to Habitat for Humanity.
- Arrow Electronics Headquarters & Data Center. Arrow Electronics is the largest private employer in Colorado, with more than 1,500 employees in the Denver area alone.
- Northglenn Wastewater Treatment Plant Headworks & Clarifier. The plant treats an average of 3.5 million gallons of wastewater per day.
- Vertafore HQ. In Sept. 2017, Vertafore moved its headquarters from Washington to downtown Denver, where it plans to bring on at least 300 new workers over the next four years.
- Country Club Towers II & III. Construction of the twin 32-story towers began in May 2015 and the first units were available to renters in August 2017.
Since its founding in 2002, Weifield has grown to nearly 450 full-time employees, and has won several major awards, including a 2018 Inc. “5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies” recognition, and a 2018 Entrepreneur magazine “Top Company Culture” honor, where it ranked #7 out of the top 25 national companies.
Weifield also has been named a Denver Post Top Workplace for the past seven years.
Weifield has a solid record of community involvement, with its four main charitable areas: Head of Household, Women and Children, the U.S. Military, and Health and Less Fortunate. The company works with local rehab and therapeutic communities through a pre-apprenticeship program that supports individuals from the Stout Street Foundation, Peer 1 Program, Denver Rescue Mission, Master’s Apprentice and other charities and at youth-at-risk organizations.
The firm's pre-apprenticeship program matches graduates from these programs with full-time workers in its prefab department to learn the basics of electrical work, construction and safety.
A full profile of the firm will appear in the December issue of ENR Mountain States.
