Electrical Design & Fabrication
Our goal is to take your complex problems and make them simple.
We shine on projects where there is:
Design Build/Design Assist Solutions
Complex Industrial or Commercial Experience
Our design capabilities outweigh and outwork our competition.
Partnering with Feyen Zylstra’s Design Services will save your company time and money through more efficient, feasible, and tested designs. Our team of engineers are professionally licensed in fourteen states and our staff includes LEED certified engineers, providing you with well-rounded, informed solutions. By incorporating industry best practices, safety, cost estimating, equipment integration, schedule impacts, and market knowledge all under one roof, we maximize the value that is delivered to you.
When we design, we do it with the end product in mind. Our familiarity with specific materials, labor costs, techniques, and code issues add tremendous value. While Design Build/Design Assist allows the owner to receive early and accurate pricing information, it also reduces large change orders as a guaranteed maximum price can be easily determined.
With design and construction overlapping, total project time is significantly reduced. Ideal for fast-track projects, Design Build/Design Assist’s time savings translate into lower costs and earlier utilization of the completed facility. With the Design Build/Design Assist approach, costs are also calculated upfront, allowing the customer’s wish list of facility features to be added into the initial building plans without any expensive or timely change orders causing construction delays.
With FZ overseeing design and construction, there is a single point of responsibility for cost, schedule adherence, and quality which improve risk management for the project. You can expect that we will produce an end product that fulfills aesthetic and functional objectives, while also meeting budget and schedule constraints. With one point of contact, you’ll spend less time and money coordinating and arbitrating between the designer and builder.
With the traditional competitive bid process, there is pressure to be the lowest bidder to secure the contract. With Design Build/Design Assist, the contractor guarantees that the design documents are complete and virtually free from mistakes, thus keeping quality high and error low.
Our prefabrication capabilities solve—and prevent—your headaches.
Our experience, structure, processes, and communication style are our key differentiators. Our prefabricated assemblies are built off site in our 8,000 square foot prefabrication shop and then delivered to the site in conjunction with the construction schedule. This develops a just-in-time type delivery to alleviate and eliminate the excessive need for onsite storage and waste.

Complex industrial and commercial projects—that's our bread and butter.
We lean into tough and challenging projects because we know that it provides us the opportunity to learn, grow, and delight our customers with new and innovative solutions. For this reason, we favor projects in the commercial and industrial industries that require high design, value engineering, or prefabrication capabilities and that may include specialty low voltage systems, electrical equipment wiring and process controls, or highly integrated systems. These projects are not plug and chug and require the unique combination or skill and experience that we pride ourselves in.
