Outdated Wiring and/or Power Grids

Sometimes, even when you’re building new, you may find yourself dealing with the many challenges posed by outdated wiring and/or existing power grids. Aluminum wiring, insufficient infrastructure and the unique needs of your build can often make planning the perfect project tricky, but with the right team on your side, navigating such issues can be resolved easily. For renovation and redevelopment projects, insight gained from extensive experience is essential and can help you navigate costly fines and delays during construction.

Unreliable Breakers, Insufficient Outlets, Etc.

Old buildings may hold curb appeal and a certain charm for viewers, but those living in unsafe or poorly designed (by modern standards) spaces will beg to differ. One of the hardest parts of bringing a building into the modern world is addressing the issues and outstanding problems from the past while also designing with the future in mind. Skilled consultants like the engineering team at KD Electrical are able to help you navigate through retrofits with minimal hassle, ensuring your build is safe, up to code, and ready to go!

Voltage Issues

Whether you’re dealing with old materials or experiencing issues with more current structures, there’s no shortage of voltage problems that can affect your property. From ebbs and flows that lead to voltage drops and imbalances to the risks posed by major hazards like arc flashes and more, it is vital your build team has the right solutions in place, and for the final results to have safety and longevity in mind. At KD Electrical Ltd, we’re proud to partner with our clients to design custom solutions that keep your building up to speed and ready to face the challenges of tomorrow.
