3 Key Electrical Design Components for any New Build

Apr 29, 2022 | Electrical Engineering

2022 is in full swing, and construction season is right around the corner. If you’re in the early stages of getting ready for development, it’s time to make sure every component of your project is set up for success. Electrical engineering plays a key role in ensuring your final product is ready to meet the needs of your stakeholders and stand the test of time. With over a decade of industry-leading experience, KD Electrical Engineering is proud to partner with clients spanning multiple industries across Western Canada to provide quality electrical consulting and design that you can trust. In partnership with the Krahn Group of Companies, KD Electrical Engineering has everything you need to light the way to success.

Below, we’ll talk about 3 key electrical design aspects that engineers handle when undertaking a new project. Read on to learn more!

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is one of the most important aspects of any build and is a key component of MEP mapping (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing). In partnership with your mechanical team (KD Mechanical Consultants, for example), your electrical consultants will evaluate the energy needs, as well as efficiency opportunities for your build. From implementing LED lighting throughout the building to ensuring your generators and other key power components are optimized for peak performance, electrical engineers take a look at all relevant details to make sure your energy input and output are perfectly balanced.

Lighting Design

Knowing exactly how to layout your lighting is a key part of overall building design and functionality, especially in retail, commercial, and industrial settings where visibility is non-negotiable when it comes to safety and efficiency. Your electrical team will partner with you to determine your needs, as well as architects, designers and all other involved parties to design a plan that works best for your unique space.

Facility Continuation

When you build for today, you always need to have tomorrow in mind. Electrical features and applications throughout your property need to be able to stand the test of time and have easy-to-maintain features that allow everything to function as seamlessly as possible, for as long as possible. Working with an experienced team like KD Electrical gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your building isn’t just set up for success “in the now”, but down the road as well.
