What Our Clients
Have to Say
At Spider Electric Ltd., customer satisfaction is always our top priority. We are proud to have earned a reputation for delivering high-quality electrical services with a focus on safety, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.
Scott Builders Inc (SBI) had the pleasure of working with Spider Electric on a challenging and noteworthy
project recently for the County of Forty Mile No. 8 in Southern Alberta. The intricate design of the
building created a number of unique sequencing and detailing complications but through progressive
collaboration much of the success of the project is in thanks to Spider Electric.
Constructing a building during the global COVID-19 pandemic was not an easy task for anyone; market value instability, material lead times, and manpower availability created unforeseen obstacles for everyone involved. Consistently throughout the process on this remote jobsite Spider Electric showed commitment to timely project completion with a focus on customer excellence.
I very much look forward to partnering with the Spider Electric team on the next project opportunity as I have the confidence that they will perform beyond expectations while holding the projects wellbeing and our customers satisfaction in the position of utmost importance.
We have worked with Spider Electric in the capacity of general contractor on several projects over the last few years, all with great outcomes and success! Some of the larger, more recent projects being the Riverside Corner commercial development (featuring Starbucks and other CRU’s), and Southlands Common commercial development which features the new Red Rock Dental Office which they also worked with us on the base building and tenant improvements.
Throughout all these projects we have experienced a great deal of courtesy, respect, professionalism, and a high level of quality and standard in their scope execution. There is a high degree of knowledge and competency through every level in their organization, and this is exemplified in the service and product that they deliver. They also work safely and adhere to the safety policies and regulations that are set out, which is important to us.
One of the most important things in our business is communication, and this has also been a highlight in working with Spider as they are very responsive, and keen to keep us informed throughout the construction process. They are always willing to assist with any issues that arise and are happy to answer any question or concern. We would not hesitate to recommend Spider Electric for all your commercial electric needs and look forward to working together again on future projects.
I have had the opportunity of working with Spider Electric on several large multi-family projects across Alberta over the past 15 years. Most recently, notable projects performed together are Lookout Ridge and The Residences at 7TH&7TH in Canmore and we currently have Sparrowhawk Lodge active under a design build contract.
Spider Electric has always been a great subcontractor on our projects. They are competitive in their pricing and are very knowledgeable and experienced in their scope of work. In addition, they are very cooperative and work well with site staff and peer contractors, always addressing any issues or concerns as they arise. Attention to detail, forward thinking, preparedness, team focussed and being prideful in their work and the overall project makes Spider Electric a very valued trade partner to me.
I look forward to continuing a long working relationship with Spider Electric on future projects!
City of Medicine Hat’s land development portfolio can vary drastically from single family
residential lots to large industrial lots, Spider Electric Ltd. has been challenged on several of our
recent greenfield and infill projects, notably the recent Airport Gateway Commercial Land
Development, the downtown Towne Square public event space as well as a recent infill
infrastructure improvement development near the City of Medicine Hat’s aging arena at Athletic
Park. Typical scope of work included working directly with Project Engineers to help with the
design and installation of utility corridors within road allowances, street light servicing as well as
site-specific servicing that can be utilized by all build forms of future development.
In addition to the projects listed above, Spider Electric Ltd. is well known across southern
Alberta to be a leading commercial electrical contractor and are known to work on the vast
majority of new commercial developments (both private and municipal) within the City of
Although proficient at providing typical land development design and construction/installation, Spider Electric Ltd. have also proven to be adept at pivoting outside of their typical electrical scope on short notice. This was proven when the City of Medicine Hat requested a construction amendment to install promenade lighting under a 70m x 10m x 5m steel framed shade canopy that was recently installed at the downtown Towne Square project. It was Spider Electric’s knowledge, problem solving skills and willingness to work within a team environment that allowed the City of Medicine Hat to complete the project on-time and on-budget. Employing a skilled front-line workforce as the company’s backbone, any future client can be guaranteed to be working with an honest, hardworking and solutions-oriented team.
I highly recommend Spider Electric as an electrical contractor. I have worked with many contractors over my career and consider Spider Electric to be one of the best. They have knowledgeable tradesmen, engineering support, and a breadth of experience in commercial and industrial construction. They have a competent professional engineer with experience in commercial, industrial, programmable logic controls, and building system design which makes Spider a good choice for projects delivered in a design-build format. Their engineering work is delivered on time, with few errors, and they are easy to work with from a consultant coordination perspective.
In my 20 year career, 13 years as president of Sunwise Engineering Ltd., they have been successful in bidding as contractors on many of our design / bid / build electrical projects. They have good leadership, project managers, and experienced electricians who take pride in their work and work safely. Spider offers solutions to problems as opposed to creating problems during construction, they are fair on changes in scope, and accurate in their billing and scheduling. I am happy when they are the successful bidder on our work as they make our job easier through the quality of their work and organization.
Spider Electric as an excellent choice for electrical projects including greenhouse wiring. We contracted Spider Electric to do all of the electrical work on our 20 acre
expansion in 2016. This expansion included a 10 MW service with 10,241 grow lights, climate computer, vents, heating system, irrigation system, and a CO2 system.
Since the expansion, we have called Spider Electric anytime we need any work done around the new and old facility. We are very pleased with their work and rates. It is important to me to have people who understand this industry do the electrical work here. We have full intentions of hiring Spider Electric to do all of the electrical work on our future expansions, due to their knowledge in this area.
Spider Electric was contracted by Dawson Wallace Construction to perform as the General Electrical Contractor for the Strachan Corner Project in Medicine Hat, Alberta.
The entire team at Spider Electric performed at a high level through the entirety of the project. Workmanship was a high standard and Spider Electric worked diligently with us to provide a high quality project on schedule and on budget. Any issues that arrived were met with Spider Electric helping provide solutions and working towards the best interests of us and our client.
I would be happy to recommend them to others and would work with them again on any project.
We have had the pleasure of working with Spider Electric on the Medicine Hat Family Leisure Centre for the addition of a 50,000 sq.ft. field house and wood floor gymnasium. As the Electrical Engineer of record for the project, we provided the full electrical and network communications design for this project.
Spider Electric Ltd. completed the project on time and on budget. Their team was easy to work with and willing to work with other trades as well as the Design Team. I was impressed with their level of professionalism and cooperation as the Electrical Trade.
Spider Electric is a competent Electrical contractor that has a core staff that understand electrical and controls. Over the past (at least 12) years I have successfully worked with them on many projects particularly in the municipal water and wastewater industry. These projects have ranged from sewage lift station upgrades to full water treatment plants. Please do not hesitate to contact myself if you have any further questions.
The Taber Airport Electrical Upgrade was completed in June 2016 by Spider Electric Ltd. as the prime contractor, with Justin Young as the project manager. This electrical upgrade to the 5kV airfield lighting systems also included a minor earthwork component. The project was completed without issue.
The Eastbrook Elementary School Modernization was completed in January 2018 by Spider Electric Ltd. as a subcontractor to Chandos Construction. This project included the complete replacement of all existing electrical systems, and an addition to the building. The school remained occupied during the majority of the two phases of construction. The project was completed without issue.
Spider Electric displayed a high degree of competency and professionalism in carrying out the above-mentioned projects. We particularly appreciate their ability to take on challenges using a collaborative approach with the client, design and construction teams. They are true team players and we look forward to working with them on future projects. We have no hesitation in recommending Spider Electric.
We worked with Spider Electric on the Medicine Hat Family Leisure centre project for close to 2 years, between 2015 and 2016. During this time Spider Electric, led by Justin Young, went above and beyond industry standards to perform quality work on time and on budget.
Spider Electric was actively involved in most aspects of the job, many of which extended beyond a typical electrical contractors scope of work. This additional involvement from Spider Electric combined with Justin’s open communication helped Stuart Olson complete a successful project for the City of Medicine Hat.
