Quality: We only source from Tier I suppliers that pass our pre-qualifications and our in-factory inspections during manufacturing.

CONSTRUCTION


DEPCOM Power has all Construction disciplines in-house and we own the latest generation of construction equipment. Our Construction staff works closely with our in-house Project Management and Engineering disciplines to ensure complete and unfettered compliance with all project permits and technical requirements. As a self-perform constructor, DEPCOM Power brings an execution strategy for each project that minimizes risk and maximizes safety, quality, and schedule control.

In-House Construction Capabilities:

Safety: Our first Construction goal for every project is to be accident free.

Quality: Each step in construction has a quality checklist that is completed daily to ensure highest quality and minimize end of project punch lists.

Schedule: We structure our construction schedules with buffer in order to ensure project schedule compliance without relying on change orders.
