Solutions Overview

SOLUTIONS OVERVIEW


 

Headquartered in NY, with offices in Philadelphia and Boston, Skae Power Solutions LLC has completed major installation and expansion projects for a wide variety of commercial, financial, institutional, medical and government clients across the nation.


From concept to commissioning, from site selection to total facility-managed services, we assist clients with a full range of services:


Design and Build

DESIGN AND BUILD


 

As an alternative to the traditional bid/spec construction model, SKAE has a demonstrated track record in offering Design/Build services to a select client base of knowledgeable end-users. Whenschedule and cost are the issue Design/Build can be the client's best option.


As a DESIGN/BUILD contractor, SKAE assumes all responsibility for project design, cost management and final performance. SKAE has a working relationship with long-time suppliers and skilled subcontractors, which insures a well-run project. With both in-house design staff and long-time working relationships with architects and engineers, SKAE is able to bring the necessary technical and construction resources to the project delivering optimized solutions on budget and on time.


The summary reasons why DESIGN/BUILD projects work are:




From relatively small to large multi-pod data centers, no other company can deliver the completed, commissioned data center as quickly or cost effectively as SKAE. Customers are our testament to our success. We depend heavily on referrals by satisfied customers to uphold our reputation in the markets that we serve.

Project Management

PROJECT MANAGEMENT


 

SKAE experts tap their decades of experience to provide value-added project management, from design conception through a project's completion before offering ongoing support. Acting on behalf of the client, SKAE coordinates and manages the project engineers, contractors and vendors to assure timely project completion, on budget and in a professional, workman-like manner.

Equipment Procurement

EQUIPMENT PROCUREMENT


 

The optimum performance of complex mechanical and electrical systems depends on the proper selection and integration/installation of the right equipment at a fair price.

SKAE has long-standing relationships with the leading manufacturers which allows us to offer our clients unbiased, up-to-date guidance regarding the purchase of equipment such as:



The advantage of SKAE'S tremendous purchasing power, established over many years with an impeccable credit history, is passed along to our clients, resulting in substantially reduced total project cost.

Installation

INSTALLATION


 

Choosing and orchestrating the right team to install electrical and mechanical systems is vital to the successful completion of a project. Competent contractors and sub-contractors must become an extension of your team and work with the same goal in mind. SKAE engineers and project managers have decades of experience planning and executing complex projects.

Our team has worked with many leading electrical, mechanical and general contractors on fast track, mission-critical projects across the country, building data centers, communication sites, government facilities and large commercial buildings. We understand the construction process, and offer the client the benefit of that experience. OUR experience with the equipment vendors and contractors allows us to successfully manage the installation of equipment and systems in both new facilities, and in expanding existing facilities.

Service Contracts & Logistical Support

SERVICE CONTRACTS & LOGISTICAL SUPPORT


 

Fielded systems require proper logistical support to ensure that they operate as designed throughout their expected life cycle. Attention to proper maintenance procedures is critically important to minimize downtime. After guiding the design and installation process, SKAE can provide start-up procedures, testing, commissioning and post-warranty preventative and remedial maintenance programs. SKAE administers service contracts for all types of fielded equipment, maximizing uptime through proper maintenance and testing.

Facilties Management

FACILITIES MANAGEMENT


 

SKAE'S Facilities Management Team provides comprehensive property management services to more than a dozen companies in the New York market, with more than 1 million square feet currently under management.

Engineering Overview

ENGINEERING OVERVIEW


 

Skae Engineering Solutions, P.C. (SES) has vast and varied experience designing new systems, analyzing and expanding existing systems, establishing or improving the reliability of mission critical facilities.

Our engineering and field services include establishing design criterion, electrical system studies, power-quality analysis, site surveys and preparation of as-built electrical system drawings. As a professional corporation, with multiple professional engineers on staff, Skae Engineering Solutions has the capability to do MEP Engineering in-house. However, we choose instead to partner with local MEP engineering firms who have a demonstrated expertise in infrastructure design.

Acting as the clients mission critical consultant, we establish the design criterion and supervise and direct the MEP firms, in a collaborative, "teaming" effort, through the detailed design, submittal and approval, construction administration and testing/commissioning phases of the project. This model allows us to minimize the "time to deploy" while maximizing the value proposition to the client, from concept to commissioning.

Electrical Systems Analysis

ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS ANALYSIS


 

Electrical system protection and coordination analyses are provided by SES to prevent injuries to personnel, to minimize damage to system components, and to limit the extent and duration of service interruptions caused by equipment failures, human errors, or adverse natural events.

SKAE engineers have extensive experience performing electrical-system protection studies for medium- and low-voltage distribution systems. SKAE'S engineers utilize the newest industry-standard software programs to develop reliable protection-study reports used to ensure that the proper protective devices are selected and able to protect mission-critical equipment in commercial, industrial, health care and data-center facilities.

Short Circuit and Coordination Studies

SHORT CIRCUIT AND COORDINATION STUDIES


 

SES is a recognized industry leader in the performance of short circuit and coordination, arc-flash, harmonics and load flow studies for complex electrical distribution systems. The need for short circuit and coordination studies has long been recognized as a requirement for companies concerned with electrical system reliability and availability. As industry has also recognized the need for "safety related work practices" as per OSHA, NFPA, and IEEE standards, SES has provided arc-flash studies for countless commercial, industrial, and government facilities.

























Power Quality Analysis

POWER QUALITY ANALYSIS


 

SES conducts a wide variety of power-quality analyses including load and power-quality recordings. We work in conjunction with consulting engineers to provide proactive recommendations to modify existing grounding systems and electrical systems to improve performance and protect sensitive electrical equipment.

Site Survey and As Built Drawings

SITE SURVEY AND AS BUILT DRAWINGS


 

Maintaining accurate, up-to-date drawings of electrical distribution systems is extremely important for the operation of commercial, industrial and academic facilities as well as data centers.

Our team has a wide range of experience conducting field surveys of existing facilities and creating or updating schematic drawings. Skae Engineering Solutions, P.C. engineers use advanced circuit-testing devices to accurately identify circuits before drafting as-built drawings using the most recent versions of AutoCAD. This facilitates maintenance and expansion projects and helps clients' staff and consultants troubleshoot problems or anticipate ones that might arise in the future. Our as-built drawing projects have ranged from modest data-center or single-facility reviews to evaluations of large 2 million square foot office buildings served by complex systems that have been expanded in a piecemeal basis over the building's life.

Field Service Engineering

FIELD SERVICE ENGINEERING


 

Skae Engineering Solutions, P.C. does more than develop design concepts, draft schematics, and do peer review. We have years of hands-on field experience addressing routine planning and maintenance, as well as helping clients address emergencies. Our field-service engineering skills include:
