  • "Rudy L Hawkins has been a great asset to my program. Their meticulous staff and craft perform excellent work on diverse Scope requirements. My current project involved installing PDCs, transformers, installation of duct bank, raceway, and multiple cable terminations to pumps and controls. At the conclusion of the Project, the only punch list items that were assigned to Rudy Hawkins, involved wiring within pre purchased vendor control boxes. Although this was out of their scope to fix, they worked to achieve the completion date, and assisted me with the “fixes” at no cost. The Hawkins crew ensured their work was performed timely, and choreographed perfectly with the Prime and other Subcontractors. Scope and Schedule issues were identified, amicably discussed, and mitigated through terms and conditions before signing the agreement. I would use this firm again, and I still continue to use them, as changes in scope require additional electrical assistance. In conclusion, I am very satisfied with Rudy L. Hawkins Electrical."

    - Collin Olie, Project Manager, REMEDIAL CONSTRUCTION SERVICES, L.P.
  • "I have worked continuously with Rudy L. Hawkins Electrical for the past eight years. Their focus on safety, quality or work, execution, and ability to deliver on time is second to none. They have a thorough grasp of the contact terms and work scopes and seldom ask for change orders except for client scope revisions / additions. They willingly repair or redo any work that does not fully comply with the scope or quality expectations of the client. I would confidently recommend them for any Electrical, Instrumentation/Controls work."
