Additional OSB

Line, Norbord


On this high profile project a tender, consisting of various separate electrical packages, was prepared for North Electrical Services Ltd and other electrical contractors on site. Heavy industrial in nature, and consisting of a wood dryer and chip press, this project required additional design input as the European equipment and specifications were to brought in-line with British Standards. Dan Schmit from Buettner Energy, "Paul and his team successfully utilised the limited tender information in order to produce a tender which not only was detailed and complete, but was also easily digested by Quantity Surveyors and Project Managers alike"

Recording Centre,

Sydney Opera


A complex and multi-stage project, worth over $1.5 million, consisting of specialist lighting, steel containment and small power, all within a live and busy site. The lighting installation was especially challenging due to the various different types of feature lighting, in addition to the lighting set into the joinery features and building fabric. Utech Pty Director, Jim Harpas, praised MacLaren Electrical, "It took great understanding and patience to be able to cost this project.  Due to MacLaren Electrical making the correct allowances at tender stage we were able to make the projected profit margin on this project".
