CORPORATE OVERVIEW


Prestige History Founding In 1970, Ray Kennamer founded our company with $30,000 and a dream to build one of the most respected electrical contractors in the nation. From Prestige’s humble beginnings managing the electrical scope on small tenant fit outs and grade schools, the company has established a pattern of high quality work, on-time and under budget. Mr. Kennamer’s vision and dedication to quality installations drove the company until his retirement in the late 1980’s. His daughter succeeded him as President of the company after working for the company for 12 years.

Dear Ms. Kennamer: Hilton Grand Vacations thanks you for the excellence exhibited by your company, Prestige Electrical, and writes to show how grateful we are for the manner in which Prestige performs work. I personally have heard from our project managers and account representatives on how pleasant and easy it was to work with men such as your superintendent, Bradley Clark. Mr. Clark’s eagerness to tackle the task of upgrading an already completed project and the ingenuity displayed by how he, along with the rest of the Prestige team, solved the multiple issues we encountered, yet successfully arriving under -budget and on-time is an example Hilton will use to teach and train our own employees. As you are aware, Hilton Parc Soliel in San Diego, CA recently received the Best Hospitality Project of California Construction’s Best of 2008, and I assure you that Prestige Electrical was integral to our success. We congratulate you for the notoriety your efforts have received. We appreciate your dedication to our business,

August 22, 2009 Ms. Kelly Kennamer President Prestige Electrical 1800 Willie Mays Plaza San Francisco, CA 94107 Mrs. Kelly Kennamer, When asked by industry associates and acquaintances as to with whom we most enjoy working, Prestige Electrical is invariably listed first. In our experience with your company, we have multiple reasons for the high praises. The foremost being the dedication to your clients as seen through the tireless efforts of your company to complete One South Park. Having an assistant project manager drive to Seattle in order to pick up specialty equipment to insure the timely arrival of that equipment is impressive. As Prestige continues to grow, North Coast Electric Company hopes that you will consider us for whatever a job requires. We say that not merely for the desire of business, but as a want to continue with relations to Prestige. North Coast Electric Company looks to provide quality service and equipment “on time, the first time, every time,� and when we find a fellow company that not only says that, but proves that, we look to stay connected with that company. I hope that Prestige Electrical continues to experience success in all of its efforts. Sincerely,

QUALITY MANAGEMENT PLAN


Quality Management Overview At Prestige Electrical, our company goal and expectation of all employees is to provide our clients with the highest quality installation and experience possible. The size or complexity of the project has no influence on the expectations we have towards quality.

To ensure the highest quality work in the field, we inspect work on a regular basis. We document all work inspected to provide an accurate quality control record for the owner and other parties. From the very beginning of the project, we discuss our quality expectations again and again to our electricians.

Quality is our corporate mindset. For Prestige to meet the highest quality standards and meet our expectations, it is important for quality to be Prestige’s formal quality assurance program applied throughout all operations of the company. addresses important project issues such as: In other words, quality is not just something we are concerned about during the construction  Reviewing construction documents for coordiphase. nation and completion as well as constructability prior to beginning work.

Quality Management Overview Prestige monitors our workforce to ensure they are meeting the highest standards set forth by our leadership. Our project management staff conducts various jobsite walks to monitor work in progress and to address quality issues on a daily basis. One of the fundamentals to our quality management plan is our dedication to identifying installation and management issues very early-on in the construction process. With our in house building information modeling services, Prestige has the capabilities and drive to isolate constructability and logistic issues to our electrical installation and other interacting trades that can make the every party’s supervision more effective

Facilities of offsite fabricators and suppliers will be surveyed as required to assure all requirements of the contract drawings and specifications are met and maintained and to assure delivery of quality products. The fabricator or supplier will be notified of any deficiencies and will be required to submit a report of corrective actions taken.

Our Superintendent will manage a complete quality assurance process prior to inspections by building officials to ensure that inspections pass the first time, every time.

We understand our clients expect and deserve the best for their financial investment, and that is why at Prestige, we treat everyday as if it were final inspection.

Superintendent Bradley Clark will be responsible for QC of the day-to-day construction activities. He will inspect the work as it’s preformed and immediately address items that do not meet the requirements of the contract documents and/or Prestige’s above industry standards. Work that does not comply with our standards of quality will be rejected and corrected. Our team will address all quality control issues directly to ensure all work conforms with the requirements set forth in the contract documents. This process includes but is not limited to the following: 

Conducting weekly meetings with our electricians that include quality concerns as well as coordination issues that impact quality.
