Southland Industries has incorporated electrical engineering capabilities into their engineering division.  The electrical department, currently located in the Mid-Atlantic office has been supporting both local and national projects. With Southland now providing complete mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design services in-house, customers can benefit from a collaborative and innovative engineering design approach.

Involving the electrical engineering team during conceptual design and space planning phases is advantageous for building developers and clients, alike.  Southland’s electrical team assists with master planning to align the mission and strategic goals of the facility or campus with functional, physical, and capital requirements. The electrical team works closely with the project team in order to develop cost-effective electrical design strategies to achieve the client’s needs. Based on the various needs of the client, budget, layout, etc., different lighting and electrical distribution design concepts are presented. These concepts are achieved through vendor relationships and by working with the owner to create an in-house preliminary budget. During the conceptual phase, Southland’s electrical department determines and coordinates electrical space requirements, such as conduit shaft dimensions and locations and electrical rooms. These steps help to eliminate “after thought” locations, space planning revisits, and construction conflicts.

The department is experienced with utilizing various project delivery methods for electrical design services. Southland’s electrical team understands the design detailing required for design-bid-build construction documents, as well as the need for a collaborative approach in design-build and design-assist project delivery methods. Providing engineering expertise, innovative concepts, and bridging ability, Southland offers an influential addition to the project team.

The electrical department’s experience mirrors key markets of Southland’s mechanical, plumbing, and process engineering departments, including but not limited to: mission critical data centers, commercial, education, and healthcare.
