Capabilities

Commercial Lighting Installations

With our association with major commercial light fitting manufacturers, Novocastrian Electrical can provide a complete lighting design and installation of light fittings to suit the client's premises. Factors to be taken into account include:

  • Overall size of commercial space
  • Type of activity performed within the space
  • Amount of natural light entering the space
  • Building fabric
  • Ceiling heights

Once all factors are considered a lighting lay out is produced to provide the required level of illumination at the working surfaces depending on the activity.

This approach can be applied to new and existing facilities

Capabilities

Commercial Smoke Detector & Fire System

Commercial premises are made up of various elements. One of the major elements is the back to base fire detection system which is monitored 24 hours.

Novocastrian Electrical, in conjunction with our service partners, can tailor a maintenance schedule to suit the client’s premises fire system needs.

All equipment is maintained as outlined in the Australian Standards.

Capabilities

Pre Purchase Electrical Inspections

Prior to purchasing a new premises or an investment property the cost of a pre-purchase electrical inspection may save you money further down the track.

Our qualified/licenced tradesmen can visit and conduct an inspection which includes testing all the electrical circuits as well the equipment installed on the switchboard.

From this site visit a written report is generated along with budgeted costs for any repairs highlighted. After repairs are completed a Certificate of Compliance will be issued.

Capabilities

Switchboard Upgrade

Electrical infrastructures including switchboards require regular maintenance to maintain their reliability. In some cases, to ensure electrical supply and to meet the current electrical standards, switchboards located within a premises will require upgrading.

Novocastrian Electrical are able to provide cost effective upgrades of electrical switchboards to, in most cases, a smaller and more reliable type.

Our experienced supervisors are able to advise on the best options during a site visit to meet the clients requirements.

Capabilities

Electrical Repairs

Novocastrian Electrical employs a mobile service team that can provide timely repairs to electrical equipment installed at private homes. Our works management system allows our closest tradesman to be despatched to your location if your call is of an urgent nature.

Capabilities

Office Automation

  • Air Conditioning
  • Lighting – internal and external
  • Hot water systems
  • Boiling water units
  • Power systems
  • Ventilation systems

Capabilities

Commercial Electrical Maintenance

A typical commercial building will have electrical elements which will require regular maintenance. Novocastrian Electrical has the experienced tradesman and the resources to provide a regular maintenance plan to meet our client’s needs in regards to:

  • Area lighting
  • Exit and emergency lighting
  • Air conditioning servicing
  • RCD testing
  • Thermal imaging of electrical switchboards
  • Appliance test and tagging

Capabilities

Electrical equipment and appliances in use within a facility or site may have a requirement for testing and tagging to ensure compliance.

Novocastrian Electrical are able to provide an appliance testing service which includes undertaking any repairs required to the appliances during testing which will reduce down light of failed equipment.

Capabilities

If you are moving into or planning to build a new premises Novocastrian Electrical can work with the client to design/install cabling and hardware for a commercial phone/data set up.

After a review of your site building plans a detailed quotation will be provided outlining:

  • Number and location of outlets
  • Location of data rack

Capabilities

Power Factor Correction Units

Novocastrian Electrical can provide solutions in regards to power factor correction.

The first step is to examine the clients current energy consumption over a period time by installing data loggers on the electrical supply.

The information captured by the data loggers can be provided to the client in a report form along with recommendations on how the client can improve or reduce energy consumption.

One very important aspect of improving quality of supply is the control of power factor. Low power factor means poor electrical efficiency. The lower the power factor, the higher the apparent power drawn from the distribution network. This means that the supply company must install larger generation capacity, larger size transmission lines and cables, transformers and other distribution system devices, which otherwise would not be necessary. This results in much higher capital expenditures and operating costs for the Electricity Supply Company, which in many cases is passed on to the consumer in the form of higher tariff rates. This is the main reason behind why the Electricity Supply Companies in modern economies demand reduction of the reactive load in their networks via improvement of the power factor.

Capabilities

Exit and Emergency Lighting System Design and Installation

Commercial buildings are required to have exit and emergency lights installed throughout the facility.

Novocastrian Electrical can provide:

  • Supply/installation of new exit/emergency light systems to new or existing sites
  • Testing and repairs as required under Australian Standards
  • Systems with the capacity for access via a wireless network to enable testing and real time fault notification 

Capabilities

UPS – Uninterrupted Power Supply

An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a device that allows your computer or similar type equipment to keep running for a short time when the primary power source is lost. It also provides protection from power surges. A UPS contains a battery that "kicks in" when the device senses a loss of power from the primary source.

The size or rating of the UPS unit is dependent on the overall load connected and the period of time the UPS will be expected to maintain power to the connected equipment.

Novocastrian Electrical can design a system, be it for a new or existing premises, to keep vital customer assets operational if power is lost.

Capabilities

Programmable Logic Control and Touch Screen Displays

A programmable logic controller (PLC) is a digital computer used for automation of typically industrial electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines or amusement rides. PLCs are also used to control lighting circuits and are useful when installed in reducing power consumption through better control over electrical equipment

Touch screens displays are installed to allow control of many types of electrical equipment. Installed in a central location at a facility the screen allows the end user to control:

  • Lights
  • Air conditioning
  • Exhaust systems.

I not long looked at the works at Gloucester Public School as part of the invoicing process.

Just wanted to pass on the appreciation of neat and thorough work that is visible with the photos on MyFlo.

You can obviously see care and effort within the works and it shows with the only things I have made comment on are the linking of the Decals within the boards on Myflo, and a few little photo updates on the Cons Mains Report.

Can you please pass on my gratitude to the guys who carried out the works.
