New 3600m² Facility Design with Property Consolidation Included
Scope of Work
As per the client’s standard operating procedure, all project’s go on tender and a minimum of three contractors are required to tender. After LAS established its E&I division in early 2019, we took the opportunity to tender on the project. The client-controlled the entire procedure, and all necessary documentation was submitted for the tendering process.
After a successful negotiation with the client’s Head Office in India surrounding price and execution requirements, LAS was awarded the electrical and Instrumentation project. LAS oversaw the manufacturing and delivery of all required panels to local and international, client-specific standards. We further installed the new main 1600A, 36kA Main LV Board along with all ancillary boards, reticulation, and lighting across the facility.
LAS also manufactured all structural supports and racking required for the project, which was installed in conjunction with Cornerstone Commercial Construction, who was the client’s primary contractor onsite. A range of copper cables were installed ranging from 4C x 300mm² XLPE down to 1.5mm² SURFIX cable for general reticulation. This included all termination and additional cable works to facilitate the consolidation of the client’s two properties into one facility on a single property.
LAS undertook all Factory Acceptance Testing, Site Acceptance Testing and Commissioning of the project. This included MV cable pressure testing after servicing the client’s MV isolator and interacting with the Local Council for work permits, switching and re-energizing the site upon completion. All MV switching during this process was also catered for. In three weeks, LAS installed approximately over 1km of electrical cable as well as all crucial panels and lighting required.
The project was completed in early March with minor finishing to be completed due to varying site delays. The project has been certified as being compliant to all legislation as required.
