What Our Clients Say

“District Electrical was the best performing subcontractor on our project. The leadership was consistent from the time we started excavations until the very last inspection and occupancy. I look forward to working with them again and want to especially mention the dedication of their foreman John Jones.”
Ken Meile
Vice President – Monument Realty – Washington DC
“Hitt Contracting used District Electrical for the first time on a large interior project with a very short schedule. Even with three holidays and lost time due to the pandemic the project was completed on time in January 2021. We will be using them again on future projects.”
Steve Ferrari
Vice President – Hitt Contracting – Fairfax Virginia
