It’s this expertise that’s seen us turn our powers to the private sector. Lead by electrical engineering guru, Clayton Vander Schaaf, you can rest assured your project is in the safest, most capable hands when you hand it to us.

Dedicated Project Manager

You won’t get the run-around when you’re working with us. In fact, you’ll have a dedicated project manager to take you from design to completion delight. Your project manager will take the time to understand your needs, then devise a plan to see them fulfilled in minimal time, efficiently and cost effectively.

Dedicated Engineer

Ideas are one thing, execution is another. That’s where your dedicated project engineer comes in. He’ll ensure that all the ideas that you develop, together with Clayton, meet the Australian Standards and statutory requirements. He’s been around for quite some time so he can answer any of your technical questions.

Case study

We recently worked on an exciting project with H&H on the Northam Ecovillage Development. They were looking for a design that powered 250 modular dwellings and shared club room facilities, which were all connected to the SWIS via a single connection point. All the electrical infrastructure in their Strata Title Development was to be owned by the overarching strata company. It was also important to them to incorporate both solar and batteries into the design. Our main design guy, Anthony, worked closely with them to create a bespoke design. And, they were extremely happy: 

“The engineer assigned to do the internal power design has been impressive and we are very satisfied with the outcome of the design work. Importantly, he delivered the required design on time and his proactive approach in seeking feedback and asking questions facilitated good communication between our electrical contractor and ourselves as clients.”
