NS Engineering Associates provides electrical mechanical installation design and construction supervision services for a wide range of buildings and factories. We are cognizant of new innovations in technology and the need to keep pace with the state of the art trends in this fast changing area. As such, it is our company policy to have representation at the prestigious annual Mideast Electricity Distribution Workshop in Dubai..

NS Engineering Associates provides an initial environmental review and auditing service to clients who wish to have their environmental management and monitoring programs critically appraised for relevance, comprehensiveness and credibility.

We undertake environmental auditing assignments as part of a team to complement technical and safety auditors, or solely in the case of environmental reviews of small projects. The aim of the environmental audit is to provide management with information that confirms that their environmental programs meet corporate goals, and assesses compliance with regulatory authorities, company policies and standards.

NS Engineering Associates provides complete cost estimating services to virtually all sectors of the power engineering sector. We prepare detailed estimates for new construction and remediation. We have up to date access to costs in specific specialty areas and regions around the the territorial boundaries of Uganda.

In addition to serving contractors with the preparation of detailed construction estimates, NS Engineering Associates provides estimate review and analysis services to owners and lenders seeking verification of project estimates and/or confirmation of project costs.

Clients turn repeatedly to NS Engineering Associates for our innovative economic analysis, real-world grounding, and demonstrated ability to deliver useful and timely results. Our seasoned experts use cutting-edge tools and methods in our analyses to help clients craft practical solutions to complex issues.

NSEAL's associates carry out in-depth analyses for a potential power engineering project that look at the complete picture of the costs required to complete a project as well as the potential benefits of completion. We retain a multi-disciplinary consultancy resource which can provide complex studies, which are crucial in ensuring project success.

Our ability to execute credible feasibility studies is demonstrated by our associates’ reputation in the engineering world. We have done multiple feasibility studies, power costing studies, audits and due diligence reviews that have assisted several institutions in making key investment decisions.

Under this service, NS Engineering Associates formulates a work plan or programme subsequent to reconnaissance and preliminary project design which may encompass such features as location, type of participants, main activities, organizational structure, and management system.

We fully describe the project and lay down it’s costing, together with a proposed financing plan. We analyze the expected results to determine possible project effects and impacts prior to documentation of the project.

Our associates then take the very important step of evaluating the financial, economic, and social objectives of the project; verifying the procedures of the project formulation team; recommending the conditions which will ensure that the project objectives are met; and ensuring that the proposed grant/loan/expenditure is in accordance with the policy of the financing institution.

Here we carry out one or several of the following depending on the needs of the project:

1. Monitor the service provider’s overall performance on site inclusive of planned     maintenance and reactive work. Where performance does not meet the required     standards obtain details and program for rectification

2. Attend regular meetings with the client and contractor representative to review     performance, additional works, health and safety matters, financial issues and     landlord/tenant matters

3. Ensure that the contractor complies with best practice and their obligations in relation to     the engineering services and assets

4. Advise on sub contractor performance including suitability for performing the tasks;     seeking alternatives where costs savings or enhanced service levels can be achieved

5. Advise on additional works, review the contractor quotations and ensure the works offer     value for money in line with market rates and following good trade practices

6. Ensure that the contractor properly establishes and maintain asset registers and     computerized planned preventative maintenance and asset management system

7. Review of existing plant and equipment replacement programmes, long term costing,     lifetime cycles and associated budget requirements 

NS Engineering Associates seeks to promote better value for money by highlighting and demonstrating to audited bodies ways in which they could make improvements to realise financial savings or reduce costs; guard against the risk of fraud, irregularity and impropriety; provide a better quality of service; strengthen and enhance their management, administrative and organizational processes; and achieve their aims and objectives more cost-effectively.

Under this service, NS Engineering Associates gathers the diverse views of the residents of the project area, regulators, politicians and other stakeholders etc that will influence the project's operation. In this area, our competencies span the following aspects:

*    Issue identification and stakeholder strategy

*    Environmental planning and comparison of options
*    Project optimisation and impact assessment
*    Reports: project inception, impact assessment, baseline, management and monitoring
