BE Switchcraft is moving

BE Switchcraft will soon be moving from the Bowden premises it has occupied for over 50 years to a new location at Old Port Road, Royal Park which will bring the entire business under one roof.

The move has been precipitated by a substantial increase in the volume of work and the need for a larger, more closely integrated production facility with better vehicle and truck access.

It will be a connected property, featuring a mix of metering, Energy Management Systems and Lighting Control forming a full technology hub. It will also be a working example of how we are helping our clients deliver a complete connected panel.

As part of the move, there will be a substantial investment of resources across the business to meet expected future demand.

The new location will allow the commencement of an additional shift to maintain and exceed production schedules for our clients.

We look forward to sharing more information about the new premises and how this will benefit our clients in the near future.

BE Integration – Bringing power and information together

The way a building performs is greatly reliant on the electrical infrastructure which creates the backbone of the critical information we need to run and manage the buildings of today.

Over the last 5 years, there has been an acceleration in the technology installed within switchboards and this pace is increasing in a power conscious and information rich society.

BE Switchcraft excels in bespoke switchboards

BE Switchcraft recently completed a complex Form 3B switchboard for Davies Electrical. The MSB, (shown below) went round a corner of the switch room and measured 10 metres in length with a 2 metre corner section.

The project called for the board to be created in 5 modular sections to get it into a tight space and was designed by our own team to AS/NZS 61439.

Well done to all the team and thanks to both Davies Electrical and the consulting engineers GHD for their collaboration on this exciting project.
