Electrical Engineering

J+B has provided electrical engineering services for new designs, renovations and upgrades to clients nationally since 1980. The electrical team provides engineering services for designs, evaluations, tendering, specifications, construction support and management, operational problems, commissioning and testing.

J+B’s electrical engineering team is experienced in designing primary and secondary electrical distributions systems, instrumentation and control systems (SCADA / PLCs), lighting layouts, arc-flash hazard assessments, evaluating operational systems/problems and proposing innovative solutions.

J+B’s electrical team of Professional Engineers and experienced designers can provide accurate and practical solutions when designing and evaluating a facility’s electrical/control systems, whether manual, automatic, new or existing. The electrical team takes a proactive approach to their design by meeting municipalities/regulatory bodies to initiate contact to get design requirements thereby ensuring no delays in getting the appropriate approvals from the governing bodies.

Before any design work is started, J+B designers make sure they have a clear understanding of the client’s scope, goals and expectations. Working with our multi-disciplinary engineering and project management team, the electrical team collaborates regularly throughout the design process to review and discuss, ensuring a complete electrical package.

J+B’s electrical team has experience in commercial, industrial and facilities projects specializing in design in hazardous locations. Examples include retail petroleum stations, bulk storage plants, manufacturing facilities, waste water treatment plants, warehouses, office building renovations and multi-unit residential.
