December 11, 2007 — Cache Valley Electric's corporate office is at 919 North 1000 West, and just south is the location for its new office building. Construction has begun on the 13,000 square foot, one-story building that will be finished in June 2008. The building will be about 40 percent larger than the current office.
The architect is Robert G. McArthur of RGM Design in Bountiful. Laub said the reasons he chose McArthur for this project are he is easy to work with, responsive and gives a personal touch. McArthur was also the architect for Laub's home.
The new office building will house some unique decorations, according to Laub. In the main lobby will be a 1930 antique REO Speed-wagon that was used by CVE in its early days. It has a special wooden platform that raises 14 feet in the air, which allowed workers, said Laub. There is also room in the back of the office for another antique vehicle.
CVE is now one of the largest electrical contractors in the West. It has handled projects as far away as Thailand, Trinidad and Puerto Rico.
Reflecting the Heart of a Home

For local designer and architect Robert McArthur, buildings should take on the shape of the people who live, work and play in them. “I try to get into my clients’ heads enough that I can exemplify their personality in their homes.”
That personal touch as led McArthur to design or help with the design of everything from the restoration of MGM studios’ historic gate to the Sao Paulo, Manhattan and Newport Beach Temples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
His homes have been award-winners at the Parade of Homes since 1975, and he recently designed a home near Park city for Designer’s Challenge on HGTB.
“Even if there’s no furniture, a home should still be a pleasant environment to live in,” said McArthur. “A building needs to have a character that supports itself without having to be decorated.”
