Services

Sustineo, based in San Diego, California specializes in Design-Build project delivery for our clients. We provide services from feasibility studies, to construction, all the way through multi-year operations and maintenance agreements. We stay involved with our clients and act as a single point of contact, ensuring the success of our projects from concept to completion. Our strengths are providing flexible and comprehensive approaches to system designs, with unparalleled speed and accuracy.

DESIGN

Our designers are licensed in Civil, Electrical, and Structural engineering and capable of operating in all 50 states. We have LEED accredited professionals who can assist with point review and coordination with architectural teams on green building projects.

Sustineo works with companies large and small to assist with plan review, financial feasibility, or plan package preparation for permit submittals to local jurisdictions. Our Certified Energy Managers, Certified Energy Auditors, and Certified Plans Examiners can assist with all aspects of energy and water efficiency audits.

BUILD

Whether you need a full design-build approach or just construction services, Sustineo operates a flexible business model that self-performs all aspects of a solar, electrical, or general contracting project. We are licensed to contract throughout California. Our design-build process can help lower total project costs and deliver superior results no matter what project type.

One entity, one contract, one holistic approach from initial concept to final sign off provides less stress for you and your team. Design-build is a dynamic alternative for any company wishing to complete projects faster and more accurately.

Your assets require operational knowledge and regularly scheduled maintenance. Who better to trust than a company that prides itself on a holistic approach to creating customers for life? With our in-house staff of electricians, mechanics, and engineers, we can troubleshoot, analyze, test, or swap out equipment at any point of the operational life-cycle.

Preventative maintenance is the key to long term success and optimum efficiency of your assets. Do you have a solar project, building, or electrical system that needs looking after? Give us a call; we can help.

Its always fun to flip the switch back on after an all night outage. Special thanks to the overnight crew that knocked it out of the park on a tough load side tap. Great work guys, I know those radius bends were a challenge on dual 300MCMs.

  • It’s been well over six months since our Redlands Headquarters solar PV installation came on line. Since the system was energized, it has been producing nearly 25% of our site’s electricity and has been problem-free. Thank you for helping to make this first landmark solar project an enormous success!

  • I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to (Southern California Edison) about the design team Sustineo for a job well done on the subject contract. Your overall rating is “Outstanding” as reflected on the Navy’s performance evaluation. The Navy needs good responsive contractors and Sustineo is an outstanding example for other contractors to emulate. Thank you for performing in such a professional manner. It was a pleasure doing business with your company.

  • Sustineo Corp has shown a deep knowledge and mastery of the NEC and applicable electrical and PV standards, providing continuously their support on the scrupulous compliance of the design during the engineering and construction stages. (They have) proved to be a reliable partner in the management of permitting and dealing with local authorities for the approval of designs and calculations. Isolux would recommend Sustineo Corp to prospective clients and would work with (them) in future projects.
