Symantec DB’s

Symantec is a global leader in providing security, storage and systems management solutions for private consumers and small businesses to the largest global organisations.

In March 2014 Stowe Australia undertook a project for the refurbishment of existing office space at levels 6, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16 and 24 at 207 Kent street Sydney.

After only 24 hours to quote the project Southern Cross Switchboards won the project to design and install 6 of the levels Distribution Boards. The scope was to provide an Energy efficient three tier distribution board. Equipped with Supply Authority Current Transformers Rated at 200A, 6 Power and Lighting split chassis all with private whole current metering. Also included was a 100A Contactor style change over switch for Essential Lighting and Power Chassis, both supplies protected by 2 separate 40KA surge diverters. This design took into consideration of the tight space we had to fit the Distribution Boards whilst still maintaining a sustainable energy solution to Symantec’s offices.

Early May 2014 the manufacturing process of the Distribution Boards was actioned. Early the next month the boards were tested with our Inspection and Test Plan procedure (ITP). After passing the ITP they were then delivered in sections to the Symantec building in Kent St. Later that week Southern Cross Switchboards assisted Stowe Australia to join the sectioned Db’s and position them into the tight spaces that they were designated for. Over two days Southern Cross Switchboards went to site to electrically and mechanically connect the sectioned Db’s and then conduct another ITP to conclude the project.
