In recent times, the University of Sydney has been undertaking new building construction, space/facilities refurbishment and maintenance projects. Southern Cross Switchboards had the opportunity to be part of some of these projects. We supplied some distribution boards in various buildings as part of the DB replacement package.

We supplied six distribution boards in total for four different buildings. Five of the DBs were completed and delivered in January 2015 and one in June 2015. The five distribution boards delivered in January are IP42 rated single tier custom built board with Form 1 segregation while the one delivered in June is an IP42 rated 5 tiers custom built board with Form 2b segregation. All distribution boards are rated at 250A, some with fault level 6kA for 1 second and some with fault level 10kA for 1 second.
