Electrical Engineering Services Explained

Electrical engineering services involve many things essential to the safety, comfort and functionality of a building whether they are residential, commercial, or industrial. 


Lighting has been shown to have a greater importance than was previously thought. Lighting is essential for being able to move around safely, but it has been shown to have a large impact on productivity and mood as well. Electrical engineers work to create energy efficient and cost effective lighting solutions while providing sufficient lighting level for the occupants to be safe and productive.  Integration of the lighting system design with the building concept is a key aspect in achieving the architectural aesthetic form desired.

Communications Infrastructure

Communications infrastructure has become essential for virtually every business. This includes telephone services, data, monitoring systems, internet and LAN. This infrastructure needs to be designed for maximum performance expected advances in technology expansion and energy efficiency. Electrical engineers ensure that all of these systems have what they need to run at their optimum level and caters for specific client requirements.

Backup Power

For some facilities, having a backup power source is a matter of life and death. For others, such as data providers or other businesses, backup power is essential for their business to function in the event of a power outage. Electrical engineers can design and install an emergency power system. They will also take into consideration the client criteria and performance objectives when creating such systems.

Safety Systems

Security and fire systems are essential to keep the building and its occupants safe. Electrical engineers will take into account applicable standards, legislation and requirements for these systems. The nature of the security system will depend on the level of security required based on the nature of the building at hand and client brief.
