Rosendin Electric recently announced the opening of its new Mid-Atlantic office in Sterling, Va. The regional office will be headed by Alan Linder as division manager. Additionally, Rosendin Electric announced that the official opening of the new office was heralded by the award of a design/build contract for a new data center in Ashburn, Va.

Rosendin Electric's new 20,000-sq-ft facility encompasses both business offices and a regional pre-fabrication shop. The office will also serve as the regional headquarters for Rosendin Electric’s east coast preconstruction, project management, and electrical engineering teams.

To launch the new office, Rosendin Electric has been awarded a $15 million dollar contract to design and build a new data center, which includes the electrical, telecommunications, and security wiring for the facility. This new project follows close on the heels of the completion of a data center build-out for Facebook and Arc Flash Mitigation for a local data center client.

“The new Sterling, Va., office gives Rosendin Electric a centralized location to service clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region,” said Linder. “We have the bonding support and capabilities to handle large contracting projects, and our expertise in data center design/build is ideal for the Virginia technology corridor. A regional office also gives us a strategic location from which to expand our federal contract work since we are within a few miles of the nation’s capital. We expect to rapidly expand our customer base throughout the Mid-Atlantic.”
