Street Lighting and Traffic Signals

Colvico is a substantial provider of traffic signals and street lighting, both for private and government entities. Colvico’s work capacity and unique expertise far surpass that of other “one-dimensional” electrical contractors.

We are equipped to handle every facet of these installations, from augering and pouring of poles, to the mounting, calibration and testing of signals and controllers. With our large inventory of heavy equipment, including line/auger rigs, backhoes and bucket trucks, Colvico is the ideal “turnkey” contractor.

Colvico maintains statewide crews of lighting and signal specialists. Our crews are full-time, because this work represents a large portion of our volume. For Colvico, this is not just a “sideline”.

If your construction package requires off-site signal and lighting work, check with Colvico. The fact is, most ordinary electrical contractors exclude this work from their scope on bid day. Save yourself time and money by contacting Colvico first.

Industrial / Heavy Commercial

Over the years, Colvico has developed a unique expertise in industrial projects ranging from water treatment systems to fueling facilities.

Industrial control applications are our preferred market niche, and account for a considerable portion of our work. Current contracts include water treatment, sewage treatment, domestic water, boilers and controls in the Seattle, Spokane and Tri-Cities areas.

This type of contract typically involves excavation, concrete or demolition activities found “distasteful” by ordinary electric contractors.

From DDC Control systems and PLCs to variable-frequency drives and motor controllers, Colvico’s craftspeople keep themselves at the leading technological edge, which keeps Colvico one step ahead of the competition.

We have performed projects for such diverse and discerning clients as Eastern Washington University, Washington State University, the cities of Spokane and Deer Park, and the Air National Guard, Air Force and Navy.

High Voltage, Underground, Duct Bank & Utility

Nearly a third of Colvico’s volume is generated through underground utility projects. Our experienced crews are equipped to install large, multi-duct banks, including spacers, rebar, grounding, encasement and shoring.

Because Colvico owns and operates numerous excavators of its own, we don’t have to rely on subcontractors for our major excavation needs. This means maximum productivity and value for our clients. We also specialize in overhead distribution, including augering, pole setting, and line stringing and sagging.

Because of our expertise in the field, Colvico is contracted by many area electrical contractors for their high-voltage needs including terminating, pole-linework and high-voltage testing. Our resume and project experience in the work category include many discerning clients ranging from the U.S. Navy to most of the public entities in Washington – including the Department of Corrections, Washington State University, the University of Washington, Eastern Washington University, the U.S. Postal Service and City of Spokane.
