Touchstone delivers turnkey electrical Projects by providing all aspects of Design and Construction Services under one contract
Touchstone delivers turn-key electrical projects by providing all aspects of design and construction services under one contract.
Touchstone partners with or carries subcontractors for other disciplines and trades that may be required, including:
Architectural, Structural, Mechanical / Plumbing, Fire Alarm & Security.
Turnkey Design & Build project delivery provides several benefits to owners:
- LLow Cost
- LFaster completion with fewer meetings, less formal bidding, bickering and back-and-forth correspondence
- LOnly one contract to manage, fixed fee or guaranteed not to exceed amount
- LNo scope gaps between design disciplines and implementation trades
- LMinimal design detail; much of the detail is field-engineered by experienced constructors
Projects where Touchstone Engineering excels with design/build delivery include the following:
Backup Power Generators
Emergency or optional standby, new installations and replacements, especially where rightsizing, reconfiguration, complex cutovers or temporary power arrangements are required. We have designed and implemented many generator redundancy upgrades without the need for costly and complex parallel switchgear. Quick-connect, roll-up docking stations and load-bank testing provisions for generators are increasingly in demand.
Central UPS Systems
For data centers, server rooms, network equipment rooms, healthcare equipment and other critical applications. New installations and end-of-life replacements, especially where rightsizing, reconfiguration, reliability enhancement, complex cutovers or temporary power arrangements are required. We have safely and creatively designed and implemented many UPS replacements with no downtime required.
Maintenance Bypass Switchgear
For critical facilities including generator, ATS and UPS systems and power distribution unit (PDU) systems. We design power distribution for critical facilities that limit or eliminate single-point failure risk and allow for online maintenance “concurrent maintainability”. This requires avoiding most equipment vendor add-on bypass features that end up more costly and limiting than properly designed and implemented bypass arrangements.
Touchstone can also provide design/assist services, where our specific engineering expertise, such as data center and backup power leads and enhances design or design/build services separately contracted from others.
