Our team of electrical contractors recently completed this park lighting upgrade in Melbourne

July 31, 2019

As leading electrical contractors in Melbourne, we know that safety is paramount when carrying out major lighting projects in public spaces.

With every job we handle, our experienced electricians create a comprehensive plan that takes into account the design, the OH&S implications for the public and workers, and the actions to keep everyone safe and secure. And then we roll up our sleeves and carry out the work to a high standard.

So when we won a City of Whitehorse contract to supply and install 105 WE-EF LED 22/44w lights mounted on six-metre poles for the Box Hill Gardens Lighting Upgrade, that’s the approach we took. Thorough planning followed by careful, considered and safe work, leading to a successful result.

Box Hill Gardens, an historic park in the City of Whitehorse, is a magnet for people wanting to relax and enjoy recreation. The space is an important part of the community and an asset for residents.

As part of the project our team had to install more than two kilometres of  new cabling requiring excavation while ensuring the preservation of trees and vegetation close to the lighting poles.

Other contract specifications included:

  • Installing footings;
  • Upgrading the incoming power supply;
  • Installing control wiring to operate the lights’ high and low setting feature;
  • And installing colour changing LED lights on selected poles operated by a DMX controller in a switchboard room.

When it comes to hiring electrical contractors Melbourne clients – whether they are local government, commercial or industrial – want the best. They want experience, innovation and high-quality work at a competitive rate. That’s what they get with our crew – along with a deep commitment to safety.

As our team was working in a public space, which stayed open during the project, OH&S and public safety were of the utmost importance. Our safety team was heavily involved in traffic management and ensuring the general public’s safety in the gardens. We also liaised with authorities including Victoria Police, United Energy and Yarra Valley Water.

Alert Electrical is proud of the work staff carried out on the major lighting project. The upgrade, a successful project for our team and the City of Whitehorse, finished on time and within budget. Workers met all Key Performance Indicators, including those from an environmental perspective with no vegetation sustaining damage during the projects.
