Fitout of new council run offices into existing Cat A building
For this project we supplied and installed all the wiring for a complete data installation of Cat6. This included all data cabinets, patch panels, PDU, fibre links between floors, fibre panels and UPS systems.
The data installation was all contained within the floor voids and all loose laid on the specified rubber matting. We relocated all floor boxes, comprising of both power and data, to suit the new layout. We also relocated the existing light fittings, and recommissioned the existing DALI system.
Feature pendants were also supplied and installed. New distribution boards were required, where fed from the main panel board, to provide segregation between essential and non essential services. This was due to the client’s need to backup all data systems.
Council work requires adherence to more rigid equipment and installation specifications so our NIC EIC accreditation was particularly important on this project.
LUX levels needed to match building requirements
Our knowledge of LUX levels was particularly important both for the general lighting and the emergency lighting. This meant that the design needed to cover the LUX levels calculations and their energy usage along with the normal layout drawing. The LUX levels had to match specific building area requirements and the design had to show optimum usage within the DALI system.
The existing Fire Alarm system also needed to be adapted so this was designed, installed, commissioned and certified to suit the new layout.
This project was extremely fast paced and required multiple decisions to be made throughout the programme to achieve the handover date. TDS Electrical was chosen as we had previously worked with the contractor Saracens and they knew we could cope with not only the quantity of work but also the continuous changes throughout the project.
During the project several elements were added, all of which were implemented without extending the overall project timescales. We were able to actively respond to changing requirements and, importantly, the client could calculate the incremental cost immediately because of way we price our projects with a charge per unit of work.
