Endeavour Energy, Springhill
Northrop was contracted by Wilken Group for Endeavour Energy's south eastern region datacentre, stores and warehouse building in Wollongong.
Northrop’s team conducted the design and documentation for general power, electrical switchboards, lighting, data and communication services, plus confirmation of standards compliance.
The challenge was to provide a cost-effective but fully compliant design to tight timeframes. The complicated data centre power design and distribution structure provided additional challenges.
Northrop used state-of-the-art design programs to both develop the design for the facility and check its compliance. The end design was optimised for cost-effectiveness through the innovative use of POWER CAD for design modelling and AGI 32 for internal and external lighting design and compliance checks.
In addition, streamlined processes through the design and drafting stages allowed the team to meet challenging time targets.
