Electrical Engineering

D&B’s electrical engineers serve both public and private sector clients to deliver fully integrated electrical solutions that ensure critical infrastructure, such as wastewater and water treatment facilities, remain sufficiently powered and operational. Our team works closely with design teams, utilities and project owners to fully integrate these systems within even the most restrictive designs to deliver and maintain power that is safe, functional, and efficient.

Our Expertise

Electrical Power Distribution Systems
We understand that the continuous operation of process, HVAC and lighting systems depends on reliable and efficient power distribution systems. Our team has designed power distribution systems at 4kv, 13kv and 480v for an array of project types, and have provided full-service electrical construction management services that include inspection, shop drawing review, start-up and commissioning, and shop witness testing.

Emergency and Standby Power
Whether it’s a town office, sewage treatment facility, gas station or supermarket, a constant power supply is a critical component to providing uninterrupted services. We have provided design and construction management services for emergency and standby power systems that range from 15kw to 1.5MW, utilize various fuel types, and are tailored to the unique requirements of each facility.

Lightning Protection and Grounding
Lightning protection systems protect personnel, structures and equipment from storm surges. We have extensive experience in designing UL and NFPA-compliant systems ranging from surge arrestors for power distribution, control panels and communication systems to roof-mounted air terminals connected to ground rods. We also understand proper grounding is a critical part of all electrical systems and our experience includes designing specialized grounding systems in poor soil conditions.
Security and Communications
Our comprehensive design approach minimizes change orders and project delays by designing security and communication/video surveillance systems simultaneously in-house. We ensure these systems are tailored to the owner’s requirements and offer fool-proof site security and remote monitoring.
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Systems
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems provide enhanced, efficient monitoring and control of facilities and remote site operations. Our electrical, instrumentation and process engineers tailor these systems to the specific needs and budgets of each client for facilities that range from small municipal water supply systems to wastewater treatment plants with remote pumping stations.

Utility Coordination
Our approach ensures that coordination with electrical utilities for both new electrical services and electrical service upgrades is performed early in the planning and design process. We have considerable experience coordinating with many major electrical utilities throughout the Northeast, such as PSEG Long island, Consolidated Edison of New York, and Orange and Rockland Utilities, for projects that include network protector configurations, pad-mounted transformers and 13kv primary services.
