Electric & Design Solutions Ltd

Creating detailed bespoke technical drawings and documentation.


Bringing over 20 years’ electrical experience across multiple industries such as Marine, Horticulture, Alternative Energy, End of Line Packaging and Industrial Manufacturing, I assist product manufacturers, service providers and integrators improve their documentation records.

As a maintenance electrician, often under the pump in emergency breakdown situations I would see a night and day difference in getting the plant or machinery up and running quickly and efficiently when there were technical drawings readily available. Often, they didn’t exist or were terribly out of date, in turn creating costly downtime.

Technical drawings show you everything you can’t see in an installation without hours of exposing cables, removing terminal covers etc. They can tell you how something is installed, how something will operate and will provide concise detailed information to technical personnel.

With an aim to reduce costly downtime, streamline efficiencies and increase the knowledge of your staff, partners or service providers, I work closely with you, the customer to fully understand your requirements and create detailed bespoke technical drawings with varying levels of complexity depending on the purpose and target demographic.

How I can help

Can your customers understand your instruction manuals, are you receiving too many support queries ?

Technical drawings and documentation available through your knowledge-base and supplementing descriptions in your manuals make it a lot easier to understand and can alleviate the support channels of your business.

Do your staff or technical service contractors understand the process and how your custom machinery or installation works?

Technical drawings can bring a visual aspect to help understand. Standby or emergency contractors may not have the intimate knowledge of your machinery your permanent staff have.

Does your plant or machinery have too much downtime? Is the electrical documentation out of date?

Investing in up to date electrical drawings and technical documentation pays off in the long run, minimising costly emergency and after hours callouts.

Can your sales team portray ideas to the customer? Do the same old questions keep arising with quotes and proposals?

Technical drawings greatly assist with portraying any idea and often eliminate quote line item questions due to misunderstanding.

Are you required to give training of your product internally or externally?

Technical drawings and documentation specific to your product is a great asset to all staff, existing and new, and also to distribution and sales partners.

Does your company have a professional edge over its competitors?

Technical drawings and documentation greatly increase the profile of any business in manufacturing and technical service providers.

I started using Richard from EDS to do all our as-built Cad drawings for electrical circuits and overviews at the start of the year(2012) and to date he has been very helpful and made good inroads into tidying up our shambles of a documentation system onsite here at TipTop Ice Cream. Previously it has always been the part of our projects that was overlooked or forgotten about, but now he’s providing solutions where we’ve run out of ideas and creating a good library of resources that will be helpful for our maintenance team for many years to come. He’s flexible, professional, reliable and most importantly prompt with his high standard of work and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering employing the services of EDS in the future.

I recently contracted Richard at EDS to create some as built drawings for one of our existing customers. Working from a sketch and some photos, Richard was able to come up with a detailed set of drawings that the customer found easy to follow. This has given Soul Energy a more professional standard of documentation moving forward.
