feasibility studies

• cost estimates
Detailed cost estimates are prepared at the outset of any project to determine feasibility. All estimates are based on current market-related costs and projections.

load calculations
The electrical requirements of a site are carefully calculated based on occupation, market sector and usage.

energy audits
The electrical usage of a site is investigated and strategies for optimisation are adopted.

electrical building services

medium voltage distribution & transformers
Design of 11kV reticulation and specification of switchgear, transformers and mini-subs.

low voltage distribution
Design and specification of the low voltage electrical network installed throughout a facility or building to limit losses and provide user comfort.

renewable energy

power factor correction

An important tool in energy saving and electrical waveform processing, power factor correction is a primary component of all our electrical distribution designs.

lighting design

Lighting or illumination is the deliberate application of light to achieve an aesthetic or practical effect. Application based lighting design is the most important factor in ensuring suitable work task environments and is especially important in highlighting important features of a building, particularly at night. Light sources, lamp types and color rendering must all be examined to achieve the desired effect with the least energy consumption.

standby power generating systems

The inclusion of generators into current electrical building designs has become necessary for installations where maintaining up-time is crucial. Rawlins Wales specialise in the design and integration of standby systems.

uninterruptible power supplies

Rawlins Wales is responsible for the correct sizing, specification and integration of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), which provide emergency power and, depending on the topology, line regulation to connected equipment by supplying power from a dedicated source when utility power is not available.

lightning protection & earthing

Design and specification of lightning protection systems is crucial to lessen damage to structures by lightning strikes. Good earthing is essential to serve as an adequate zero-voltage reference level for the entire electrical system in a building.

electronic building services

structured cabling systems for data and telephone

Design of a structured cabling backbone provides a facility or building based infrastructure that allows the neat and accessible reticulation of all data and telephony points required.

PABX and communications systems

PABX’s and communication systems are specified and tendered, and incorporated into the electronic designs for a site.

fire detection systems

Fire detection systems can be provided from the basic early detection warning systems through to self-extinguishing gas expulsion systems.

CCTV systems

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) can be designed to monitor specific areas or an entire facility.

access control

Access control mechanisms can be included in building design to manage personnel movement and physical resources.

alarm monitoring systems

Automatic deformation monitoring systems can prevent the loss of infrastructure and income.

public address systems

Public address systems incorporate verbal or electronic announcements as well as distribution of background music.












         specialised building services          

specialised building services

building management systems

Building management and automation are control systems designed to monitor and control the mechanical and electrical systems in a building to reduce building energy and maintenance costs when compared to a non-controlled building. Rawlins Wales can assist in the complete integration of these systems into a new or existing installation

energy management systems

An Energy Management System is designed specifically for the automated control and monitoring of the heating, ventilation, power and lighting needs of a building primarily to provide facilities for the reading of electricity, gas and water meters.

energy audits and reports

In depth inspections and analysis of existing facilities reveal much of how their power is managed and consumed. Energy audits are undertaken to drive down operating costs by implementing new energy management strategies and efficient equipment.
