Whether you’re looking to upgrade your current switchboard or install a new one, we’ve got you covered.

01 Initial Consultation

The first step in the process of a power capacity upgrade involves a site visit, a discussion of the client's objectives, and the presentation of potential solutions.

02 Quotation

After the initial consultation, we will provide a detailed quotation with options if needed. This will help the client understand the costs involved in the project and make informed decisions.

03 Approval

Once the client has reviewed the quotation and any questions have been answered, approval to proceed with the project will be sought. A 50% deposit must be paid prior to the job starting.

04 Plan

The next step is to plan the project. This involves creating a timeline, managing external contractors, and communicating with residents or tenants regarding power outage times and access requirements.

05 Job Execution

The installation of the power and/or switchboard is carried out during this stage, along with mandatory testing in accordance with AS3000:2018. The re-energization of power completes the job execution stage.

06 Post Job Tasks

The final tasks will include an independent audit of the works, the creation of a final invoice, issuing of compliance certificate and a handover with the client.

Excellent workmanship, provided efficient and effective service and communicated with us exceptionally well - a highly professional outfit.

The old switchboard located in a very small room was constructed in the 70s and was at the end of its life and there were concerns about its safety and potential failure. We obtained a number of quotes from contractors, but contracted with Jay due to his clear communication of the process, his competitive quote and his professionalism.

From the civil works to the manufacturing of the board, to the required activities for the day of the shutdown, all were well communicated which meant that we had minimum disruption to our residents.
