Project remit

The client acquired a site close to the agricultural college at Writtle to construct an agricultural equipment sales and repair facility close to the agricultural centre of Essex

This was a green field site and a new construction of a steel framed building.

Our remit was to design supply and fit the total electrical installation.

starting with the dilapidation of the existing site services and then reinstating them for the enabling works.

Then relocation of the enabling install as the site progressed.

The building consisted of 6 large repair bays and a substantial office area, stores, office, sub structure lighting and welfare facilities

Out design team set to work to deliver a comprehensive package including data and comms cabling.

The build programme was 8 weeks from completion of the steel frame to the opening day a very tight programme.

Issues to over come:

As a new site we were tasked with arranging the incoming supply and negotiating with UKPN and the service provider

Solutions:

We had to time our request for connection very carefully to make sure the mains room was secure and fit for purpose prior to the completion of the building

With a very short install date for all the trades there was a high degree of coordination required to ensure the seamless working and avoidance of conflicts between trades

C&G opted to become principle contractor to liaise between all the trades to ensure the smooth running of the project

With a tight budget the client wanted to future proof the building for any expansion.

We agreed to install the infrastructure and cabling for additional circuits but not to complete the final connections until they are required this applied to both power, lighting and coms/ data.

Whilst a challenging project with a set and unmovable deadline as the client was vacating an existing facility on an unmovable date the project was delivered on time and within the budget.

The open day was a great success with all the trades invited to attend.
