Cat and Diane with Bob Garoutte from Neal Electric

Every year, Neal Electric organizes an annual golf tournament. This year was particularly special because they are celebrating their 30th year in business! It was our first invite to attend, so how could we resist? Cat and Diane packed up a car full of necessities and headed down to North County San Diego to support the Neal Electric 21st Annual Golf Tournament

The Performance Utility Supply tent was located at hole #6 at the San Marcos Twin Oaks Golf Course, where Cat and Diane were armed and ready with shots, cigars, and of course, P.U.S. energy drinks!

Cat said, "This was our first time attending and we hope we get invited every year! Everyone was having a blast playing and laughing!"

For Diane, it was an chance to catch up with old friends and form new relationships. “I had a great time seeing former co-workers and old friends, plus getting to meet a lot of Neal Electric employees. I also met some of their general contractors and sub contractors - it was a fun networking opportunity.”

For over 30 years, Neal Electric has been providing electrical services to customers throughout Southern California. Their union shop has grown from a family business to a larger corporation and they continue to provide value through innovative technologies and reliable performance. Neal’s reputation of high quality work product and unparalleled customer service is built from training and growing their best employees from within and keeping all aspects of their work in house. 

Performance Utility Supply is proud of the working relationship we have with Neal Electric. The golf tournament was an excellent day and we appreciated the invite. We hope to see everyone again next year!

Kaiser Permantente San Diego Central Hospital

Kaiser Permanente has begun construction in Kearny Mesa on it's first new hospital in San Diego in 40 years. Founded in 1945, Kaiser Permanente is one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit health plans, serving approximately 9.3 million members. With 528,000 San Diego County members, Kaiser is one of the region's largest health providers.

“Kaiser Permanente’s new central hospital will be a high tech hospital of the future,” said Mary Ann Barnes, senior vice president and executive director for Kaiser Permanente San Diego. “From green design to the latest technology, it will have all the tools to provide our members with the highest quality care in a beautiful, healing and nurturing environment.” 

The 565,000 square feet facility will be built on 19 acres of land with a 1,400 space parking structure, wrap around healing garden and gourmet cafeteria. Inside the seven-story building will be 450 patient rooms which will feature sophisticated technology in telehealth, digital way-finding, clinical informatics and communication. Some of the technology includes patient remote-controlled room environments for blinds, lights, and temperature, plus an interactive entertainment wall for internet, movies, and video chats.

GOING GREEN
The central hospital will be the first in California to earn the LEED Gold health care hospital certification. Besides energy-efficient electrical, air, and plumbing, it will be the first hospital in the nation to use all LED lighting throughout. They will take advantage of natural lighting, a solar photovoltaic system, and active chilled beams in patient rooms. The use of reclaimed water will be for landscaping and the cooling towers.

Working with electrical contractor Morrow-Meadows, Performance Utility Supply has been delivering materials to the Kaiser Permanente jobsite since February 2014.

MATERIALS INCLUDE:
Various sizes on SCH40 conduit, fittings, bends, segments
Glue, empty quart cans and rollers

Korey took a trip to the jobsite in May and you can see the progress on the P.U.S. Instagram.
