How Darby Electric Meets Demand with Buildforce

Heather Darby · Owner

The Challenge

Founded in 2019, Darby Electric achieved early success and began taking on increasingly larger projects. Heather and her husband, Mark, quickly learned about the challenges faced by a successful electrical subcontractor.

In the summer of 2023, they found themselves working on Trinity Basin Preparatory Academy, a significant project that was three months behind schedule before even breaking ground. The need for reliable temporary electricians became evident. "Other temporary agencies reached out to us but weren't able to actually get people out when needed," Heather recalled, emphasizing the challenges they faced.

"When we were three months behind schedule before even breaking ground, other temporary agencies reached out but weren't able to actually get people out when needed," Heather recalled. This sentiment is unfortunately the prevalent challenge many contractors face with traditional staffing solutions. Luckily, Buildforce was able to help.
