How We Work
Building the right panel starts with asking the right questions upfront. Whether you come to us with full drawings or just the concept, our Team will work with you to be sure we understand all requirements to meet your needs. Hargrove panel designers have years of experience working in panels. Our Team is happy to visit your facility to be sure we understand all factors, such as spacing and obstruction considerations that may not be obvious. Hargrove’s experience combined with this discovery process means that we plan a panel the right way, the first time.

QR Code Documentation Storage
QR code technology puts drawing databases and equipment manuals associated with a panel at your fingertips.
Information can be hosted and maintained by Hargrove as a service. Alternatively, we can work with our clients to develop a client-hosted option, where our Team works with you to define the file structure, setup the drawings, etch the QR codes, and deliver as a package.
