High-end, sustainable office fit-out in Perth complete with EV chargers

Cablewise Electrical and Communications successfully completed the fit-out of a 3-floor critical Government control centre within a prestigious commercial building in Perth. Spanning 4000 square meters, the project aimed to establish a modern, flexible, collaborative, and secure workplace to accommodate various Government service departments and facilitate the sharing of common resources.

The implementation prioritized the security of base-building power services, incorporating multiple layers of backup systems to ensure uninterrupted critical services, particularly during State emergencies. Emphasis was placed on the installation of high-quality, vendor-certified communications cabling, featuring consolidation points for easy future reconfigurations and expansions.

Furthermore, the project supported the Government’s transition to electric worker pool vehicles by including multiple electric vehicle chargers. This initiative aligned with their commitment to sustainable transportation and reducing carbon emissions.

How did Cablewise Electrical and Communications approach the challenge?

The onsite project team from Cablewise Electrical and Communications collaborated seamlessly with the Shape team to ensure a smooth installation process.

This involved setting up a rooftop generator as a backup for critical communications servers and upgrading the basebuild power generator to enhance capacity. In addition to these upgrades, Cablewise Electrical and Communications assessed and improved the power infrastructure to accommodate multiple EV chargers.

Throughout the project, strict adherence to the highest standards was maintained, and careful planning and communication ensured that the work was carried out without any disruption to other commercial tenants.
