About

We were initially asked to attend the scheme to carry out fault find to the circuit to establish with the bollard lights were continually tripping following heavy rain falls. Once our engineers attended we discovered that the SWA cabling feeding the bollards were either damaged or poorly terminated, with additional bollards having be installed poorly and the bollards deteriorating.

Upon Client approval, we advised all tenants that were to be affected by letter of our start date and estimated duration of works. We set up a safe work area and proceeded to dig, lay ducting and SWA cable to re-feed the bollards. We had also advised the client that we intended to split the previous single circuit of 25 bollards spread over a large area into 3 separate circuits to allow for voltage drop and overloading of the circuit. We completed the works 2 days prior to our estimated completion date thanks to the hard work of our engineers and supervisors. Upon completion of the works we carried out a full hand over to scheme manager and provided all certification and Operational & Maintenance Manuals.

Client Feedback

"First time back on site this morning since new lights fitted, all I have heard is how pleased tenants are with the new bollard lights and how much brighter they are, what a difference from before.
So I thought I would pass on how happy the tenants are, so a big thank you for all your hard work."
