In 1996, when the government mandated that all future power distribution systems must be installed underground and that the private sector would be responsible for design and documentation of these services, WGE identified this opportunity and reacted quickly. We established a team of electrical experts at the forefront of design to take on the challenge.
Our Underground Power Design (UPD) team has over 50 collective years of power experience and has been behind many large projects including Perth Waterfront and Latitude 32 in Hope Valley, an industrial estate with the first dedicated solar roadway requiring a large number of fittings over hundreds of kilometres.
Due to the quality of our work, we’ve become the trusted consultant by local authorities and many of our clients. For example some of our design proposals have been adopted by Western Power as their standard for future inner-city developments.
Early planning is the key and a full brief is vital. Think laterally about the project and all the elements that may affect the plan so that you prevent expensive mistakes in the future. Involve your consultants from early stages of every development and ensure their expert advice is taken on board.
