Escondido-based electrical contractor benefits from customized BIM training including one-on-one project mentoring

Baker Electric has partnered with U.S. CAD, a Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions consultant and Autodesk Platinum Partner, to provide a uniform onboarding experience for new staff members as well as increase the technical expertise of its existing team.

As a full-service electric and photovoltaic contractor based in Escondido, CA, Baker Electric serves as both a prime and subcontractor, and provides comprehensive preconstruction services and the planning, coordination, design-build, in-house electrical engineering, and project management from initial design to follow-up maintenance.

Baker Electric chose U.S. CAD to provide technical training in the Autodesk Revit Electrical software in order to better prepare its team for the increasing demand of BIM-required projects. However, Baker Electric soon realized that its team required more in-depth training of construction-related topics than what was provided in a traditional 3-day course.

As a result, the company chose to enhance its overall training program with the addition of flexible mentoring days. During these mentoring days, U.S. CAD’s Electrical and MEP expert was onsite with the Baker Electric team to provide specific guidance and answer workflow and technical questions about projects that the team was working on.

“We are very happy with the training and mentoring that U.S. CAD has provided us,” states Todd Albright, Planning Manager at Baker Electric. “Baker adopted BIM some time ago and now, with our team members on the same technical skill level, our customers will see additional value. BIM will bring our customers better coordination with other trades, detection of issues early in the project, and the ability to address these areas quickly so that our field team can be more productive and efficient.”
