The Yorkshire based Internet Service Provider famous for its brass band, dancing girls and Yorkshire Terriers TV advertisement chose us to supply the Mains Switchboard, UPS Switchboard and Roof Mounted DBs and a Switchboard Extension for their new facility in Leeds.
Scope of Supply:
This involved close liaison with consultants Hill Laurence and building fit – out contractor Overbury to obtain appropriate access to enable us to use a caterpillar tracked Panel Moving Machine to transport 700 kg switchboard sections up steep car park ramps and narrow corridors whilst a crane was employed to lift other Panels 5 stories on to the roof.
Complete with automatic mains to generator changeover controls, power factor correction and a temporary generator connection an unusual feature was the “Big Foot” legs on the Roof Mounted Distribution Boards, designed to enable installation without affecting the building’s water tightness which would have otherwise been compromised by drilling through the membrane to fit “holding down” bolts.
