We understand that the success of your project is often dependent on the availability of electrical power. Therefore it may be critical to the project outcome that the electrical design is on schedule and to the standard required for your application.

Follow the Sun

We can help put your project on schedule by using best practice, team drafting. This is done through co-ordinated teams. The interface with your project is either from our local office or from an embedded project support officer in your office.  

From our local office, co-ordinated teams are organised to work on your project, both in our local office and in overseas offices. 

The overseas offices are in different time zones, allowing the work to ‘follow the sun’. In this way the number of days required to complete a work package can be minimised.
