Glenfield Hospital, located in Leicester, had a requirement for an onsite Pharmacy suite to allow the business to produce and distribute medicines. A new on-site building was proposed and a decision made to have a fully functional, new, pre-fabricated portakabin duplex building delivered and constructed on the site within 6 weeks of planning permission being granted to the Hospital.
The Remark Group, working alongside the Main Contractors, Portakabin and Interserve, provided the new site with the Main Electrical supplies from the local Sub-Station and Sub-Distribution systems, including back-up Generator supplies, utilising 120mm SWA/XLPE cabling systems. Our Head of Electrical, Russell Howland, and his team designed and installed the Electrical supply between the Hospital’s High Voltage sub-station and the new building complete with an Automatic Generator changeover switch that provides replacement power in the event of Mains Power being lost.
We also undertook the task of the external Car Park Street Lighting, Public Lift access and Electrical NICEIC Testing Certification of the new building.
Martyn Fowell, Site Manager for the pre-fabricated building provider, Portakabin, commented “Once again, The Remark Group have provided us with a professional and reliable electrical service to ensure the project not only was handed over to the client on time and within budget, but was also carried out to the highest Electrical Standards from the initial offset.”
Interserve Project Manager, Tim Oliver added “Remark’s electrical team carried out the works within the sub-station in a professional manner and in full compliance with our strict Health & Safety procedures, I am very impressed with the standards of the works carried out and the method of which the works were organised.”
Russell concluded, “It’s very rewarding to see the works completed to the clients specification within the very tight deadlines and constraints of the project. We’re proud to have successfully provided its electrical services to Glenfield Hospital.”
