Jean Ross Anglicare Village

This project included the installation of a permanent 250KVA diesel generator, along with a new main switchboard with an in-built automatic transfer switch.

The works involved underground excavations, the installation of new cabling and the restoration of all surfaces affected whilst working on site. Platinum worked closely with an electrical engineer to design and install the new main switchboard which included ATS and surge protection.
 
Our team were responsible for the coordination and management to prepare and set up the construction site, which involved engaging with several local contractors for civil works including:

  • Concrete cutting
  • Excavations
  • Concreting
  • Removal of soil

PROJECT ACHEIVEMENTS

Our team were able to complete this project with a total outage time of only 1.5 hours to the center. This was a major achievement considering some of the centers’ residents require full time care.

PROJECT DURATION: 4 weeks
CONTRACT JOB VALUE: $170,000
