NECA-IBEW Team Employs Code of Excellence in Omaha, an Electric TV Webcast, a Feature of "Industry Today" on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - December 2, 2010) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The NECA-IBEW team is employing a "Code of Excellence" at every IBEW local to improve dialog between project owners, contractors and electrical craftsmen. Each IBEW craftsman is required to attend a Code of Excellence program. The Code of Excellence is a written and signed document by IBEW workers, endorsed by NECA contractors, that ensures they will live up to the highest work standards of safety and productivity. More than 800 craftsmen in Omaha, Nebraska, have completed the program. In a recent webcast interview on Electric TV, Gary Kelly, the business manager for IBEW Local 22 in Omaha, said, "We have an effective program that we are proud of, which supports our promise to our customers to provide the best electrical services on the market."

The NECA-IBEW team recently completed work on the three-story, 100,000-square-foot Mammel Hall at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. The $34 million, LEED-certified project incorporated state-of-the-art UV lighting, temperature and CO2 sensors, and sensor and lot diffusers.

The IBEW international office has asked every union local from coast to coast to sign up to the Code of Excellence.
