About the Commercial Industry
The commercial industry is diverse, challenging, and competitive; commercial building owners and property managers continue to face the challenges and obstacles of the ever-changing business environment. It is composed of investors, owners, developers, and occupiers who aim to create well-designed, safe places to work. The commercial industry ranges from businesses to office towers, which require a reliable power supply and regular maintenance to ensure that all commercial buildings are supplied with uninterrupted power. Whether it’s replacing old ageing equipment, identifying ways to improve energy efficiency, or providing around the clock maintenance, IPE Canada is the power supplier for you.
At IPE Canada, we work to:
- Provide the services and equipment to help keep commercial properties profitable
- Increase energy efficiency and reduce utility consumption
- Decrease costs associated with repairs due to electrical failures
- Provide seamless and reliable power supply to avoid interrupting business processes
- Ensure that all standards, regulations, and codes are appropriately met
- Reduce downtime resulting from electrical failures
- Maintain a happy and healthy environment for tenants to work, improve revenue, and productivity
Our Commercial Services
IPE Canada is committed to upholding our superior level of electrical services and providing cost and energy-efficient solutions for all of our clients. We know that the commercial industry is diverse, which is why we offer a diverse range of services for all our clients in the commercial industry, including:
- Arc flash studies – Arc flash assessments are performed to examine the power system of a facility and determine the energy produced at specific electrical devices. Assessing the energy levels allows for appropriate warnings and protective equipment to be prescribed to ensure personnel and equipment safety.
- Coordination studies – Coordination studies will offer a thorough evaluation of the protective devices of a system, including protective relays, fuses, circuit breakers, and the circuits they intend to protect.
- Short circuit analysis – Short circuit analysis is utilized to determine the magnitude of short circuit current that the system is capable of producing, which is then compared to the magnitude of the interrupting rating of the overcurrent protective devices. The knowledge gained from short circuit analysis is crucial to the ability of protective devices to interrupt these short circuit currents.
- Load assessment – A basic electrical load assessment will list all of the electrical devices within a facility, their power ratings or loads, and the approximate number of hours that the device or equipment operates daily. The result of a load assessment is an estimate of a facility’s power consumption and provides the information required to improve efficiency and reduce overall costs.
- Infrared Thermography (IR scan) – Our team of highly trained electrical engineers and thermographers utilize the latest technology to perform all infrared scan inspections. The use of infrared thermographic scanning is a crucial step in effective electrical preventative maintenance programs, allowing us to find issues before they become critical. Using infrared thermography, our goal is to detect both common and uncommon issues that typically lead to critical disruptions. Using our specialized equipment, we are able to identify hotspots that are difficult to see through surface inspections and conducting virus scanning to safely identify electrical problems.
- Breaker maintenance and testing – Breaker maintenance is essential to ensure that breakers continue to be able to support critical loads reliably and operate safely when required.
- Commissioning emergency power services – Commissioning services are offered for all installations to ensure that they are safe and meet all of the design requirements. Commissioning is incorporated into each stage of a project from pre-design until the final verification at project closing.
- Automatic transfer switches – Automatic transfer switches function by providing a reliable means of transferring essential load connections between primary and alternate sources of electrical power. Settings that require continuous uptime, will use an alternate emergency power source, such as a generator, in case the primary power source becomes temporarily unavailable. Automatic transfer switches allow users to access seamless and reliable power in the case of an outage by automatically transferring power to the generator when utility power fails.
- Protective relays – Protective relays are utilized to correct electrical problems and they do so by detecting a problem and working to restore the system to its normal conditions. Protective relays work to reduce the chance of damage to personnel and equipment.
- Battery – Installation, maintenance, replacement, removal, and recycling
- Repair and emergency – Dispatch services available 24/7 for electrical equipment misoperation or failure.
