Our Company

Technical Solutions is an Electrical Engineering Design House with an affinity for its clients and their requirements.

We can help with an entire project from design to installation or provide support for one specific area.  From simple electrical layouts, to automation, complicated 3D lighting design, sub-division underground services and building management – there isn’t an electrical or electronic design that we cannot provide.

Technical Solutions came about as the collaboration between a company heavily involved in electronic design and manufacturing and a company involved with the building industry in a design and installation capacity.  These two companies joined forces in 2013 in order to offer clients a seamless design experience.

The Company Directors, Regan Sim, Lee Eagle and Gareth Newton, have 45 years of collective experience in the industry and have completed over 800 aged care installations.

Technical Solutions listen carefully to your needs, actively advise you of your options and engage with the project.  We provide solutions with affordability and longevity in mind.  We can adapt any design to fit any budget. There are often savings that can be made up front, and savings that can be made over the course on an installation’s life.

We have a wealth of knowledge in project management and understand implicitly how jobs transition from paper to the finished product.  Full support is provided to our clients after submitting a design – Technical Solutions is capable and willing to see a project through to completion, in any capacity. We are passionate about seeing our design work translated into a practical, cost effective and working project.

We love what we do and believe in always putting our clients first in every part of our design dealings.
