Case Study: A Top 5 Largest Non-union Electrical Contractors Needs Laborers in ND

Their Challenge:

Beginning in early 2012, National Construction partnered with one of the top five largest non-union electrical contractors in the country to supply licensed journeymen electrician in the state of North Dakota. With energy mining and drilling operations in the western half of the state, and major flood repair operations being undertaken in the northeastern portion of the state, already thin manpower resources have been stretched to the brink. The vast majority of licensed ND electricians are already working and thus tough to connect with.

Our Solution:

National Construction acted swiftly in utilizing our national network of labor to draw from states where electrical licenses reciprocate with North Dakota. These resources and tactics, along with maintaining constant lines of communications with the state electrical board, have allowed us to activate licenses for ready and willing labor within just a few short weeks. Our pool of licensed, and potentially licensed (via reciprocations) North Dakota electricians continues to grow as we continue to constantly recruit. Please keep us in mind for any upcoming projects!

Case Study: Major Contractors in Western Australia

Their Challenge:

Major contractors in Western Australia are currently experiencing a massive shortfall in skilled construction workers, as compared to their current demands. The heavy commercial and industrial construction industry, in addition to the various mining and natural resource industries have seen a boom in recent years that has stretched local labor resources to its maximum capacity.

Our Solution:

National Construction is currently working with Australian construction workforce development agencies, and domestic trade schools and associations, to compare the different skilled labor training and licensing requirements between our two countries. Our goal is to be able to provide skilled American Journeyman labor to Australia, with immediate qualification for these candidates as Skilled Tradesman, upon their arrival in Australia. At the same time, National Construction has formed a joint venture with a consultant on the ground who is helping to understand the specific needs of potential clients in the region of Western Australia. This needs-based factfinding approach hopes to yield National Construction the result of successfully supplying labor to end-user clients in Australia in calendar year 2012.

Their Challenge:

Major national electrical subcontractor won a large project in the ski-resort, mountain region west of Denver, CO.

The project was able to be staffed under budget, at a profitable margin for our client and our client’s client.
