Roberts Electric at Work: Tenant Improvement

Roberts Electric has become a tenant improvement specialist, upgrading facilities for many retail clients throughout the Bay Area. We have become unique in the industry, skillfully moving between commercial tenant improvement projects and residential remodel and service work.

We’ve completed projects at a Van’s store in San Jose, North Face in Gilroy, CVS in Burlingame, Ann Taylor, an H&M store in Fairfield and a Uniglo store in Concord.

Working the Night Shift at Best Buy

Roberts Electric worked the night shift for Best Buy

We’re also working on two tenant improvement projects for Best Buy. They need to stay open during the day to serve their customers, so we’rebestbuy working the night shift to accommodate their schedule challenges. This is not uncommon—we worked on the bar at Pyramid Alehouse in Berkeley, and when the restaurant closed, we went to work. The restaurant never missed a day of service. We make every effort to accommodate our customers in whatever way we can.

Historical Temescal Alley in Oakland

Roberts Electric Tenant Improvement Specialist TemescalAlley

Temescal Alley: a miniature village of specialty retailers. The RECO team never misses Doughnut Dolly–where doughnuts are hand-rolled and filled to order

where doughnuts are hand-rolled and filled to order

We’re also doing work in Oakland’s historical neighborhood that’s being called Temescal Alley. Former horse stables and carriage houses have been transformed into a miniature village of specialty retailers, including Oakland Dry Goods and Mind’s Eye Vintage. One of our favorite stops is Doughnut Dolly, where doughnuts are hand-rolled and filled to order. We love owner Hannah Hoffman’s Naughty Cream, filled with creme fraiche vanilla bean pastry cream.

Roberts has worked on many historically sensitive homes and businesses over the years, and they represent unique challenges.

We know that treating the project with appropriate historical sensitivity is critical. Roberts has worked on many Queen Anne, Tudor, Edwardian and Victorian as well as MidCentury/Modern homes throughout the Bay Area. Installing new wiring and new technologies into these historic residences requires a deft hand and deep understanding of best building practices.

We think of ourselves as caretakers in these homes and commercial spaces, taking extra precautions to preserve historical features because we know they cannot be replaced.
