What was Revo Group contracted to do?
Why did the customer choose Revo Group?
What was achieved and how did we do it?
This outcome was achieved by first conducting a thorough site survey and assessment. The survey utilised an IKE4 GPS unit and DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone to capture the required data for a detailed analysis. This initial assessment found that the pole was high in strength for the conductor loads attached to it. Then the pole was analysed in Neara line design software to determine its ability to meet standards without the stay wire. We also looked at what changes might be required to stringing tensions and adjacent poles on the tee-off that the stay was supporting so that we could present all viable options.
Our team then wrote a thorough engineering report to validate this proposal to Ausgrid and produced a design to support the report. The team at Ausgrid were impressed with the quality of the report and level of consideration for impacts on the network, and subsequently certified the design.
Benefits of the work completed?
By choosing Revo Group, Navara Projects saved over $20,000 in construction costs. By utilising quality engineering at the beginning of the project, the assumption of pole replacement did not have to be followed. This outcome has also allowed the client to maintain flexibility in the building of their new development.
Here’s a quote from the client:
We found Grant amongst a list of qualified ASP3s in which we cold called until we found the right ASP3 for the job at hand. As soon as we had a chat with Grant, we knew he and Revo Group were the team we needed. Being the first time we have experienced this particular challenge, Grant explained to us (in English terms) exactly what was going on. Not only the process and potential solutions, but he was well aware of the cost and the need to try to keep it down where possible.
We certainly felt like a VIP with Grant keeping us updated every step of the way, the communication was well above our expectations. Being well versed in the process on both sides of the fence (ours and Ausgrid’s), this made the experience smooth and stress-free.
We would like to thank Grant and the team at Revo Group for their professional services and we do hope we can work with them again in the future. If any of our colleagues ask for any electrical engineering consulting, I know who I’ll be sending them to!
