    3.0 RESOURCES

    Electrical Design Group operates fully electronic offices utilising the latest in design, documentation and system management software.

    4.0 METHODS OF OPERATION

     

    Internally, all projects are undertaken in accordance with our control and review system. Electrical Design Group provides a project engineer as the single point of contact for each project.  The project engineer also controls and is responsible for the project internally.  We believe that it is important that the project engineer is a single person, who is able to run the project from conception to completion.

     

    4.1 Briefs

    Following initial meetings and discussions on the project at hand, a design brief is produced for all parties to review and constructively criticise.  This document outlines the intended scope, type, quality and provides preliminary space planning data.

    In addition to identifying the relevant aspects of our services the brief defines all relevant associated works which includes:

  • Services interfaces.
  • Authority works and interfaces.
  • Exclusions.
  • These are detailed such that assumptions which are not documented by us, are notified for review and comment by the responsible parties.

    4.2 Concepts

    Part plans and sketches are produced to clearly communicate requirements during the conceptual planning stage. The concept documents often form part of the brief.

    This simplifies the development of conceptual architectural plans and allows constructive commentary to occur prior to detailed development.

    4.3 Detailed Design

    AutoCAD drawings and part plans are presented in two fundamental stages.  Firstly, as a detailed development of the design brief and conceptual layouts, and secondly, as a formal set of contractual documents.  The early issue enables the end user, as well as the design team to review more detailed layouts and to facilitate any modifications.

    4.4 Reviews

    Design reviews are inherently built into the development processes outlined above. We believe that it is critical to undertake reviews of our own work not only in-house but also utilising the relevant resources of the project team.

    This enables that at each stage, the project is being lead forward.

    4.5 Construction

    The construction phase is approached proactively with regard to reports, inspections and meetings as necessary, and where required by our services agreement

    5.0 QUALITY OF DOCUMENTATION

    Documentation is the key method of communicating a design, and as such, Electrical Design Group places extreme importance on quality and consistency which includes:

  • Correspondence which is formal, clear and concise.
  • Specifications which are detailed and specific to the project.
  • Drawings are neat accurate and clearly legible.
  • Reports are efficient and specific to the purpose.
