Highrise, Apartments and Unit Block Switchboard Replacements and Upgrades.

Older Switchboards found in High-rises, Apartment Blocks and Unit-Complexes can often be a death trap for occupants and even technicians working on the switchboard.

The older Switchboards are often not fire rated, have damaged circuit protection and can be full of asbestos! This is a liability for a Body Corporate or a Committee and not to mention safety risk.

The necessary steps such as a switchboard upgrade and inspection, should be taken to mitigate the risk of a serious incident. Our company Switchboard Solutions work closely together with Body Corporate Managers, Owners and Committees to determine what’s steps need to be taken to improve electrical safety for the building.

Riverhills Main Power Upgrade and Switchboard Upgrade, 29 Unit Townhouse Complex

An old and outdated switchboard with essential services such as a lift and fire indication panel was required to be upgraded due to serious defects. A communications provider had installed a comms tower on the building meaning minimal downtime required for the changeover. This switchboard was installed on the adjacent wall due to the size of the new switchboard and custom covers were required to protect the existing cabling at the old switchboard location.

Therefore a consumer mains upgrade was in order. The switchboard was also upgraded and relocated to a suitable location to meet compliance with AS3000:2018. For the consumer mains upgrade, the driveway was cut up for the new cabling to installed. A services locator was also used to ensure no services were damaged during installation.

The mains power to this townhouse complex was constantly tripping due to overloading as a result of increased power usage at the complex over the last 2 decades. A consumer mains and switchboard upgrade was completed, resulting in an increased power capacity for the complex.
