Oct 14, 2022 | Blog, Electrical Engineering

Do you know the value that a skilled electrical engineering team brings to your build? Beyond simply “making things work”, your electrical team is heavily involved in the initial design phase, throughout construction, and during the overall lifetime of your building to ensure optimal performance and safety. As part of the Krahn Group of Companies, KD Electrical Engineering knows the importance of partnering with a vetted team of professionals when it comes to ensuring the longevity of your finished product. Whether you’re building a new or developing an existing space, making sure you have the right pieces in place is essential.

Below, we’ll take a closer look at some of the benefits and safety aspects offered by electrical engineers for development purposes. Read on to learn more!

Why Safety Matters

We all know that there’s no shortage of things that can go wrong during construction, but we don’t always think of the long-term implications and dangers posed by taking shortcuts or by partnering with an ill-equipped consultant. Industry experience, integrity, and access to knowledge you can trust are essential for success. Working with an experienced team like KD Electrical gives you access to industry leaders in the electrical field, as well as our peers across multiple disciplines including civil, structural, mechanical engineering and more. That means you’ll always have the benefit of clear communication across all parties, as well as access to the knowledge you need when it matters most.

During construction, electrical engineers help to prevent risks and promote optimal performance by dealing with aspects like:

Identifying key risk factors

Every job site is unique, and each build will present its own distinct challenges. Your electrical team will work in conjunction with civil and structural consultants to conduct a thorough assessment of your specific site and create a custom plan that addresses each concern directly. This tailored approach helps to avoid common pitfalls and faults, as well as reduce the risk of significant hazards like arc flashes, etc.

Orchestrate Efficiency

Electrical engineering deals with some of the biggest parts of your project, including designing and implementing your overall power grid/system. Hands-on involvement means streamlined systems with fewer errors and long-term results you can trust to perform without issues and premature wear and tear.


On the topic of long-term results, one of the best perks of working with a skilled team is having the peace of mind that your build is ready to face the challenges of the future. At KD Electrical, we always design with tomorrow in mind, using leading techniques and intel to create a final product that’s ready to stand up to the test of time.
