Competent industrial electrical design demands that service itself be conducted in a professional, contentious and efficient manner, but that the result be practical, safe and sensible for the client. The electrical designer must have sufficient experience so as not to unnecessarily delay construction. He or she must also have enough practical background so as to understand the needs of those who will operate and maintain the completed project. Competent design means a practical design for those that will use, maintain and expand the system. Access to components, room for expansion and quality of equipment are essential.
Years of experience working in the power field, examining and working with an array of designs and products, have resulted in a solid understanding of what works for the end user. Often, the design is not inexpensive initially, but incremental savings over the life of the project more than compensate for the marginal increase in initial cost.
Quality Control is also paramount for efficient design implementation and client satisfaction. Design projects, for example, involve a programmed interview process with the client to assure the client’s input into the products selected for use in the project. Once the project design is complete, an extensive checklist is utilized to assure the necessary elements are included in the bid documents. Finally, a standard outline for the Pre-bid meeting is utilized to assure contractor understanding and proper interpretation of the design drawings. All materials associated with the quality control process is archived for future reference.
