With the advancement of technology, connecting various building systems through a common interface can provide real-time information and diagnostic tools to keep your facility performing at peak efficiency. By integrating systems in your building, you can obtain system capabilities that a single system cannot do by itself. With an integrated system, you can continuously monitor your building’s systems to identify opportunities for system optimization and operate your building at peak efficiency by engaging only what systems are necessary at any given time. Houle offers the ability to combine many systems that previously required its own computer or interface into one easy to use access point, whether it be on an on-site computer, a web enabled device, or both. We can integrate heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, security systems including CCTV cameras, audio visual systems, lighting, energy monitoring, electrical power monitoring, UPS back up battery power monitoring, emergency generators, and other building systems. At any time, you can know who, what, where, when, and how an event of any kind took place in your building from anywhere in the world.
“The Houle Electric culture aligned very well with KMP project requirement and is well recognized by the project. Your ability to maintain schedule focus while absorbing increasing workload under often difficult conditions is testament to the above and I believe a key point of differentiation for your organization. In addition, your leadership, drive and passion were imbued within your team which contributed in no small part to the successes demonstrated.”

"Houle Electric has been a major contractor for Endako now since April 2010, to assist with projects and routine mining maintenance. Houle has been able to supply the amount of people asked for on each specific project and also has been able to supply electricians that they felt were capable of performing mining duty tasks. To date we have not had any issues with these electricians at all and are happy to have them as part of the Endako Electrical maintenance team."

“I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere gratitude to your organization for the outstanding work that Houle Electric has provided for our construction project. Our project shutdown and project completion I feel would have been in grave jeopardy if not for Houle Electric stepping in and filling the void. Houle Electric has shown the professionalism and expertise that was needed...”
