Dave Anderson - Mid-City Electric

We’re excited to announce that we have promoted Dave Anderson to director of estimating! With 25+ years of experience in construction, Dave will now manage the estimating department for our company. In this position, he will be leading our estimating team in delivering budgets, estimates, design assist services, and comprehensive proposals to our diverse list of clients. He will also work in a business development capacity to strengthen existing customer relationships and build new ones with the goal of delivering better projects to the Owner.

Dave is one of Mid-City’s key players regarding the electrical infrastructure of healthcare spaces. His understanding of our clients’ sensitive work environments, complex electrical needs, and the high-stakes nature of their industry make him an invaluable resource when designing and constructing buildings for some of Columbus’ biggest healthcare providers. Some of his most recent hospital projects include the 2019 Craftsmanship award-winning Nationwide Children’s Hospital West Energy Plant, OhioHealth Kobacker House, and numerous projects for Mount Carmel Health.

Additionally, his knowledge of the design assist delivery method runs deep, as he is a member of all of Mid-City’s major design assist project teams. His portfolio of design assist work includes the Franklin County Forensic Science Center, Mount Carmel Grove City Ambulatory Center, and OSU’s Oxley and Pomerene Halls.

“Dave is not only a proven estimator, but he knows the importance of maintaining good relationships with his customers. He makes understanding what his customers need, and staying in communication with them about those needs, a priority. It has made him a very valuable resource to our team,” Brian Dew, Mid-City president, said.

Dave got his start in the electrical trade by following in the footsteps of his father, Dave Anderson Sr., who was an electrician for 35 years. Dave spent the early part of his career in the field, first serving as a journeyman electrician and later a project foreman. “The first job I went to as a first-year apprentice was a project at St. Mary of the Springs Church. My foreman was Bernie Gartner,” Dave Anderson, director of estimating, said. “It is a great memory because my dad was the foreman on the job years prior when it was originally built. Following my time there, I went to work for Don Bringardner.” Some notable jobs Dave ran as a foreman include National City Call Center, the East Broad Street location of Key Bank, and multiple projects at Riverside Methodist Hospital. After four years of running work on-site, he joined the project management and estimating team, where he has been since that time.

Dave lives in Canal Winchester  with his wife Maleea, and three children Tyler, Nicholas, and Emily. Dave’s oldest son Tyler is currently applying for the electrical apprenticeship program through the IBEW, with an anticipated start date of this fall. He is currently working in Mid-City’s prefab shop.
