APD Engineering were engaged to provide a certified electrical design for supply of Eaton Apartments in Wickham, Newcastle. A chamber substation was selected due to apparent space restrictions to site. Liaison with client, architect, structural engineers and site electricians was part of the process used to develop the final solution.
APD has extensive experience in all areas of contestable engineering design and drafting (ASP Level 3 – NSW, PM2 – VIC, 47.X – QLD). This includes: overhead and underground asset relocation; powerline design; chamber and kiosk substations; HV Connections; project master planning and staging for large land developments; easements; UG and OH communications; street and public spaces lighting design; and construction project management.
We understand the constantly changing nature of metro, urban and rural networks, the issues, required resolutions for close proximity of other utility services, limited service corridors, importance of safety in design, integration of old and new infrastructure, methodology for accurate site visit assessment and mitigation of environmental aspects.
APD are proficient in network standards, policies, pricing mechanisms and utility requirements which ensure we design the most practical solutions. APD designers also recognise that easily constructible designs are the most cost efficient designs for our clients.
APD’s extensive list of panel accreditations demonstrate that Transmission and Distribution Network Service Providers (TNSP / DNSP) acknowledge our expertise in understanding their processes and we have the technical capability required to work on their networks.
Our extensive quality management procedures and checklists also further enable to maintain our consistently high design pass rate, rapid turn around and high customer satisfaction rates.
