Endless Opportunity

When you work in such a broad industry, no two days are the same. At Kerfoot, we are proud to have worked on a wide range of projects – large and small. Our clients often require custom solutions, detailed planning, and precise execution to complete their ideal construction.

Every project comes with a fresh new set of challenges. Problem-solving and hard work combine to make our team so successful in this industry.

In 2016, we won a NECA NSW excellence award for our work on the Plasser Rail redevelopment. Our work for Plasser involved the extension and construction of their manufacturing facilities. Completing our work whilst maintaining a functional environment for manufacturing was one of the main challenges during the Plasser project. During our work extending the production facilities, we installed the following:

  • a substation to support the existing power supply
  • 3 new power distribution boards
  • 105 new energy efficient hi bays
  • new fibre link from the Telstra network
  • CCTV system design and installation
  • wireless fire smoke and EWIS system

When it comes to electrical construction jobs, the next project you work on could be entirely different from the last. That’s what makes it so exciting to work in our industry. In contrast to our work with Plasser, we were also awarded by NECA in 2016 for our work on the Australian National Maritime Museum Warships Pavilion.  This project involved the design and installation of the venues electrical, communications, fire, and ventilation services.

Because of the venue’s unique location suspended over Darling Harbour, we had to run each system through the base location on land and into the museum on the water.
