Parkdean contracted our team to design and install a full Main LV Switch Room Upgrade complete with the refurbishment of the Building Fabric structure and the coordination of SSE to relocate the Main Incoming DNO Electrical & metering Supply.

The enabling works on this project included the removal of extensive vegetation and the removal of Asbestos Roof Panels on the existing Main LV Switch Room. These works were managed by our Project Management team and completed using our specialist supply chain. Our team also upgraded the tired-looking timber windows and door with new PVCu units.

Following metering analysis on the installation, our team installed an 800Kva Generator housed on an Artic Trailer connected to the existing busbar system to provide a continuation of power and lighting to the holiday park to ensure they were operational throughout the project.  The exiting LV Panel and all associated switchgear were disconnected, removed, and recycled locally via our in-house Waste and Environmental team.

Working closely with Denmans and Schneider, our team installed new LV Switchboard Enclosure Floor Standing switchboards, complying with IEC 614391, IEC614392, IEC/TR 61641 d2.0, IEC60529 complete with Power Factor Correction Unit, Surge Protection, Independent sub-metering of all outgoing ways and all Protective Devices.

Local TP Distribution Boards were also replaced as part of the upgrade works, providing ambient heating and LED lighting to the new LV Switch Room, plus upgrading the supply to the nearby Holiday Lodges.

On completion of the LV Panel Works, the Main LV Switch Room door was refitted including reinstating any removed blocks whilst removing the redundant front window from the Main LV Switch Room and blocking up the window opening. Works also included upgrading surround fencing and creating an enclosure housing the new LV Switch Panel

The Electrical works were completed by two of our longest-serving engineers, James Robinson and Mark Downey.
