Importance of 3D E-House Designing

In order to perform detailed designs of pre-manufactured #substations it is preferential to perform three-dimensional (3D) modeling and analysis of the #E-House and associated equipment. The ability to view the #switchroom in 3D and examine the spatial inter-connectivity of all equipment is an extremely valuable tool. The EQ-House Automated design tools capture all of the integrated families to produce a drawing set ready for manufacture.

No need for shop drawings….You are ready to build!

Bricks & Mortar vs Modular Design

It’s a known fact that #Modular #EHouses are a more cost effective enterprise than Bricks & Mortar to build.  Research has clearly indicated a minimum of 15% cost difference between the two.

Another factor that has been traditionally overlooked is the fact that modular E-Houses due to a more efficient use of space achieve significantly better power usage effectiveness compared to that of the standard Brick & Mortar type structures.

This efficiency comes from E-House expertise and understanding how to optimize the design.  Unfortunately we see the common occurrence to revert to Brick & Mortar construction methods because that knowledge is simply not there.  Trust me when I say the 15% difference is understated, when you take into account the equipment installation, testing and commissioning.  The total cost variance will be far greater.

Further innovations in the design of Modular E-Houses will consistently see the product become ​l​ighter, ​fa​ster to build and more cost effective.

The EQ-House team have applied years of experience into R&D to produce a design and build process that is consistently evolving to suit the required environmental conditions for E-Houses.


Why choose the EQ-House Automated Design Solutions

Traditionally the approach to creating the E-House design goes through a number of steps where your engineers engage with the client side in a long back and forth process in an attempt to get it right.  Generally this requires a large amount of redlining & submissions.  Which ultimately eats into your project schedule and costs begin to climb.


“Stop Making it Hard on Yourself” – Wouldn’t you rather submit E-House designs to your client in one submission rather than six?


With the support of the EQ-House team and utilisation of software getting the E-House design solutions right has never been easier.  Make the right decision and you can mitigate blowouts in cost and time and deliver a truly satisfied customer.


3 ways to save money and risk on you E-House

Building, expanding, or updating an E-House is an exercise that takes time, money, and lots of planning. When handled the wrong way, it wastes time and money that’s better spent elsewhere. So, what’s the solution to saving money AND avoiding risk?

Contact EQ House

EQ-House is known Australia-wide and Globally. Various industries trust us to handle their e-house projects at any stage whether it’s the entire packaged solution or simply submitting tenders.

Because you’re contracting a professional, your company is greatly reducing risk in more than one area. Thanks to our comprehensive auditing systems, we know which vendors are best to build your switch room. If the project is already planned, we can audit that as well, reducing lead times and boosting efficiency.

Be VERY Specific About Your Needs

Oil and gas, Mining, Utilities, Rail,Renewable switchrooms; each industry has different needs. EQ-House’s specialised services are so efficient because we’re familiar with how they all work.

This is also thanks to customers being specific about what their projects need. Committing to a single decision, product, etc. saves time AND money. You’ll save cash on resources as well, if we do the vendor and project audits for your e-house.

Leave the rest to us

EQ-House’s Construction managers save money and reduce risk thanks to good, old-fashioned experience. Our safety measures guarantee that the final product is ready to use because we put it through a battery of tests, checking all the necessities off the list.

In the design stages, we can stop risks in their tracks. Our E-House designers can be contracted to do a design audit that will look over what you have at that stage. They’ll identify any red flags that must be fixed, or if there’s something that should be added or just do with some optimisation.


During the install, test and commissioning stage, EQ-House can supervise and oversee accuracy of testing plans from pre-install to integration. Inspections, managing subcontractors, and overseeing the delivery reduces any risks of the e-house not working well with the system it’s meant to connect with.

3 things we have to build you the perfect electrical switchroom

EQ-House’s clients are mainly large electrical or control systems companies that have a need for our specialist expertise. Safe to say, then, we know what to do to build the perfect electrical switchroom for any future and returning customers. How are we so confident? Well, we have three of the best things.

The Experts

EQ-House is young, but our experts have decades of combined experience. Whatever you need, we have it: Construction management, design, auditing, and commissioning all under one roof. Our leadership team made it to where they are today thanks to hard work and setting high standards for themselves.

An electric switchroom is a crucial piece of infrastructure that ties a whole site together. We don’t do things by halves, or just short of perfect. Our team of experts gets the job done right the first time, assuring delivery that’s on time and well within budget.

The Contacts

Creating and filing tenders is a drag for those who aren’t familiar with the process. So is finding a vendor, designer, and integration specialist…the list goes on.

Creating an electrical switchroom requires knowing who to contact, when to contact them, and how to find them. EQ-House’s team saves you this time when we take the work off your plate. We know the processes to go through and the right people to call. It doesn’t matter if you call us at the beginning of the electrical switchroom build, in the middle, or towards the end.

The Tech

We love using the tech at our disposal to help you build the perfect electrical switchroom. Our 3D automated  design solution will help you see what the finished product will look like. It’s very cool and very efficient for pointing out important aspects and changes.

Though EQ-House doesn’t build the electrical switchrooms themselves, we’re familiar with what’s needed to make them. Our site and building supervision teams know what to look for before and during the production process. This minimises the risk of accidents and faults on site.


EQ-House has built the ‘perfect electrical switchroom’ for clients around the world, from Australia to the Emirates. These are just three of the things we have to make you the perfect product, but there’s so much more you’ll have access to with us.


Building & Equipment arrangement optimisation

The footprint, layout and management of E-House equipment arrangement is essential to establish that there is correct balance and adequate pathways of travel in, through and about the building structure itself.


The EQ|House Design review team use a checklist to establish criteria that will ensure that the distribution of equipment throughout the building is balanced.  Distribution of heat loads is a very important aspect of building design and ensuring optimisation to provide thermal efficiency of the HVAC system is a critical element in this process.  Improving the performance of HVAC strategies can provide immediate reductions in energy use and energy costs for your Client.


We will check existing designs and ensure that all specified vendor’s equipment fits within the building envelope ensuring  distances between equipment, door clearances and pedestrian areas are inline with project specifications.


Other imperative decisions to be considered with regards to building layout and arrangement include appropriate determinations with regards to integrity and environmental issues including:

  • Fire ratings
  • Blast resistance
  • Lifting and Shipping
  • Cyclone or high wind regions
  • Seismic conditions/regions
  • Lightning Protection


Our team will identify within the local market the compliant materials that line up with the design to optimize product outputs and comply to project/client requirements.  Material selection plays an integral role in building load/efficiency ratings and constructability.  These factors dictate the building performance, production time and project schedule.


Getting the “Up Front Design Factors” right will determine schedule, quality and ultimately client confidence in you.  Choosing the EQ-House team is the right choice.
