Birnie electricians, what a view!

New Toronto Courthouse

Birnie electricians organizing and laying out in amongst the rebar on the new Toronto Courthouse before the concrete is poured.  What a beautiful view!

This is why electricians go through many years of training so they can layout electrical, data communications, security, AV and life safety systems on a complex job like this.

We at Birnie Electric are so proud of our employees.

Birnie Electric celebrates 50 years of success and innovation

April 7th, 2017
To commemorate its golden anniversary, the Licensed Electrical Contractor hosted a gala last week and raised $20,400 for the Sick Kids Burn Program. Those in attendance included family members, past and present employees, partners, suppliers and the Mayor of Mississauga.

Birnie Electric was founded on April 1st, 1967. The organization evolved from a two-person operation working out of a small office, to one of the largest family owned electrical firms in Ontario.

Peter Birnie, who started the company, is proud of Birnie Electric’s legacy. “It’s been a long road from putting alarm bells into Mac’s Milk stores and then getting to the stage where we’re an integral part of building an LRT system in Toronto,” he says.

According to the organization, Birnie Electric’s year-after-year revenue and portfolio growth is testament to its commitment to service, excellence and innovation.

BirnieElectricLtdLogo

Birnie Electric Ltd., a Mississauga-based electrical contracting firm, announced today it has been awarded a $6.5-million contract for electrical work on Stage 1 of the Region of Waterloo’s new light-rail transit (LRT) system. The LRT, known as ION, will ultimately connect the three major urban centres of Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo.

AECOM

“We will be providing design-assist electrical services with AECOM along with installations for a new maintenance and repair facility and 19 LRT stations,” said Tim Birnie, President Birnie Electric. “Our continuing successes on high-profile projects such as the Pan-Am Athletes Village, combined with our commitment to workplace safety, were positives in this successful bid.”

Work will begin in early January 2015 with completion by the end of 2016. Stage 1 of the project will see light rail trains running on 19 kilometres of track from Conestoga Mall in Waterloo to Fairview Park Mall in Kitchener by 2017. Birnie Electric is working with Aecon, a member of GrandLinq, the consortium awarded the overall contract.

IBEW

“We have worked with Aecon in the past, most recently on completion of the $20-million Darlington Maintenance and Computer Development Facility.”

Mr. Birnie said his firm is an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) contractor, and expects to hire 15 to 20 Kitchener-Waterloo electricians on the project.
