Properly designed electrical systems provide a resilient power source, reduce energy consumption and optimize building performance.

Technological, environmental and regulatory issues that challenge building owners worldwide include Internet based technologies (TCP/IP), systems integration, redundancy, clean power and green technologies: all important components of an engineering solution that is current within a rapidly changing marketplace.

Proactive Planning for Reliable Power Distribution

In our electronic and digital world the slightest power outage, disturbance or voltage variation can have devastating consequences for your business. Secure and Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS) with battery of flywheel back-up can provide clean, stable power during black-outs, brown-outs, surges or swells in utility voltage.  Owners and developers are turning to critical power specialists to proactively plan for UPS and back-up power systems.

Controlling Loss- Back-up Power for Critical Systems

With increasing stress and demand on the utility grid, power failures are predicted to become more frequent and of longer duration.  Clients are focusing on ‘self-sufficiency’  as an method of maintaining business continuity, controlling loss and keeping a ‘leg-up’ on the competition.  Emergency (back-up) power generators (diesel, gas, bi-fuel, etc.) are an important part of that strategy.

Central Plants for Complex Facilities

A ‘central plant’ approach to heating/cooling/electrical can provide cost-effective energy to a facility at high efficiency.

Systems Convergence

Through integration and digital metering, a buildings critical electrical functions such as power distribution and energy spend can be centrally monitored and controlled.

View Model

Central Control Centres for Streamlined Management

A centralized approach to monitoring critical building functions such as power, energy usage, security and building control can be a cost-effective method of prioritizing and responding to issues with limited staff.

The ‘health’ of an electrical distribution system can be viewed in ‘real time’ over the building local area network (LAN).  Flags can be set to warn of impending overload or high temperature.  With digital metering, energy consumption data can also be viewed over the building LAN.  Building operators can use this data to control ‘peak demand’ charges from the utility.

Data Centres- the 'Brain'

The ‘brain’ of most business processes and the corporate data typically resides in the Data Centre.  Power to this facility is of utmost importance.  Characteristics of a solid critical power system are reliability, availability, concurrent maintainability, security and efficiency.
