We represent one of many school districts in the greater Bay Area, on this day, a small school district in San Jose, a project G.L.S isn’t even on. I receive a Monday 6:00 a.m. call from the Facilities Director. We were facing a significant challenge with recent storms and complete power loss at a schools MSB. For all intense purposes school will not be opening this day. The district asked me to call their preferred electrical contractor, to our disappointment they were unable to assist, when I suggest I know an outstanding electrical contractor, would you like me to make a call? As directed, I call Christian of G.L.S. One phone call and an hour later like the Calvary, G.L.S. stopped what they were doing and rushed over, power restored, schools back in session. I can’t say enough about their attentiveness to urgency, their electrical expertise, and staff professionalism. This is just one of may instances, G.L.S is truly a friend to our industry.
