Electrical Construction

Our Electrical Construction Division has been involved in many iconic Manitoba projects over the last 45 years.

Commitment to providing customer service excellence has been at the forefront of our growth. Our approach to electrical construction includes the incorporation of the latest technologies in power distribution, building management, metering solutions, energy codes, and greenhouse gas reduction for a variety of market sectors such as healthcare, manufacturing, and institutional disciplines.

Bid to Spec

reviewing all specifications in detail

When bidding on a “Bid Spec” project, Wescan reviews the specifications in detail to determine the scope of work and provides a cost estimate of the project. This involves reviewing blueprints and schematics, conducting site visits to assess the electrical infrastructure, and consulting with other contractors and suppliers to determine pricing for materials and equipment.

Design Build

single source of responsibility

This project delivery method is used to provide a single source of responsibility for the design and construction of the project. Wescan offers comprehensive solutions through our in-house design team that will work closely with our construction teams throughout all aspects of the project. Our Design Build process is highly advantageous as we streamline the project timeline, reduce project risk, and promote collaboration with the owner.

Design Assist

input and recommendations

Unlike the design-build approach, the design-assist method involves input and recommendations from the owners’ design team to develop the initial design concept. Throughout the design process, Wescan will suggest alternatives or modifications to the design to improve its functionality, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.

Lighting and Control Systems

A well-designed lighting and controls system can improve energy efficiency, enhance occupant comfort and safety, and reduce maintenance costs. By leveraging advanced technologies such as LED light sources, sensors, and automation, lighting and controls systems can be optimized to meet the needs of a variety of spaces and applications. Our in-house design team can provide engineered solutions for lighting projects of any size.

Power Distribution Systems

These systems are designed to ensure that electrical power is delivered safely, reliably, and efficiently to all areas of the building or facility. Wescan employs a team of electrical designers and detailers to provide knowledge and experience on designing and implementing power distribution systems such as transformers, switchgear, and protective devices to regulate and protect the electrical power.

Fire Alarm Systems

Fire alarm systems are critical for ensuring the safety of building occupants and reducing the risk of property damage. Wescan has extensive knowledge of the networking of devices, including smoke detectors, heat detectors, manual pull stations, and audible and visual alarms. We also provide services for monitoring and control equipment, such as fire alarm control panels, annunciator panels, and communication devices.

Experience the power of superior electrical construction

Trust our team to deliver innovative solutions, exceptional craftsmanship, and reliable performance on every project.

Lightning Protection Systems

In addition to the lightning rods, conductors, and ground rods, lightning protection systems may also include surge protection devices and other protective equipment, such as transient voltage surge suppressors (TVSS) to protect sensitive electrical equipment from damage caused by lightning strikes and other electrical disturbances.

Proper installation and maintenance of lightning protection systems is critical to ensure their effectiveness. The system must be installed in accordance with local building codes and industry standards and must be inspected regularly to ensure that it remains in good working order.

Instrumentation & Control Wiring

These systems are designed to monitor and control various processes and equipment in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and power generation.

Instrumentation and control wiring involves the installation of specialized cables, wires, and connectors that are used to connect sensors, switches, and other devices to control systems. These devices may include pressure sensors, temperature sensors, flow meters, level sensors, and other types of monitoring and control equipment.

Electrical Engineering

Our Electrical Design manager has over 47 years of experience in the electrical field and has completed some of the most complex electrical designs in Manitoba.

The work of our electrical engineers involves using principles of physics and mathematics to analyze, design, and troubleshoot electrical systems. They design electrical components such as transformers, motors, and generators, as well as develop systems for controlling and protecting these components. They also work on developing and improving communication and computer systems, such as wireless networks and computer hardware.
