“Anything worth doing is worth over-doing.”
This unofficial company motto speaks to the true focus of everyone at Infinite Energy Construction. Founded in 1996, IEC specializes in electrical contracting and general contracting for commercial companies as well as government entities, which demand a strict adherence to schedule and the highest-caliber work. Through work with clients such as the U.S. Armed Forces, the Federal Aviation Administration and the General Services Administration, IEC brings this same “military spec” quality and commitment to excellence to all of our commercial clients here at home.
Through our extensive experience in electrical work, IEC is an efficient and effective subcontractor because we understand the scope of the project from the general contractor’s perspective. We’re capable of delivering complete solutions – including electrical engineering, project management and construction – through a focus on performance, safety and understanding of our clients’ mission and needs.
Growth is another important measure of the faith our clients have in our performance. In addition to our headquarters in the historic Martin City neighborhood of Kansas City, Mo., we have satellite offices in Fort Irwin, Calif., Knob Koster, Mo., Fort Worth, Texas, Shreveport, La., and Charleston, S.C. IEC is also MBE, DBE and 8(a) certified.
Higher performance, higher standards—it’s more than a tagline, it’s the visible commitment to excellence you’ll see from every IEC expert and in each project we complete.

Nilce G. Palma
Director of Finance
B.S., Business Finance & Entrepreneurial Business Management
Texas Christian University, 2002
As CFO, Nilce is responsible for planning, tracking, directing and evaluating the business’ fiscal functions and performance as well as providing the CEO and COO with timely and accurate reports and budgets. That’s a vital role, because in spite of the fact that IEC’s business is Electrical and General Contracting, typically on projects with concrete foundations, the foundation of any business is sound finances.“Having seen the company grow and develop from its inception, I am proud to be at a point where I can contribute to something that my family has worked so hard to build from the ground up,” she says. “For me, this is more than just a job or career. It’s an investment in the success of all of our a families- those of all of our employees and our own.”
When she’s not helping to run IEC, she’s running after two young children, or simply running; she’s a marathon runner.
Our commitment to safety is something that can be seen
and measured in our planning, approach and execution.
At IEC, ‘safety’ is not just a policy statement, it’s an active verb. Our commitment to safety controls every phase of every job; planning, approach and execution. We’re committed to providing a safe work environment for our employees, partners and customers for two reasons: it’s right for business, and it’s just the right thing to do.
From the beginning, we know how our safety procedures and plan will be applied most effectively and logically for each task, delivery order or project, regardless of magnitude.
We communicate expectations, guidelines, and deliverables for all – employees, subcontractors, vendors, and customers.
We insist on safety compliance and the proper execution of safety practices throughout. We regularly, randomly, and thoroughly inspect our safety benchmarks and love to catch people doing the right things.
Our work environment is always changing, so our safety plan is always evolving. We never stop looking for ways to improve our approach.
