Project Description

  • Exchange Station, Liverpool Project Type

  • Large scale electrical refurbishment

In 2018, we completed a large-scale electrical refurbishment for CEG, one of Liverpool’s main land owners.

The work took place within the basement, ground, first, second, third and fifth floors of Exchange Station which is based in the centre of Liverpool. Deborah McLaughlin, Executive Director of CEG calls the building the “cornerstone of the central business district.”

It was a large technical project with a final budget in excess of £750,000. Using our own directly employed, experienced specialists to carry out the new wiring infrastructure, lighting, communications cabling, mains and power distribution systems, we rose to the challenge, and brought the project in on time and within budget.

All aspects of electrical installation and design were taken into account during the project, using our own Trimble electrical design software, Relux lighting design software and AutoCad architectural program, we were able to demonstrate to our client that the installation would perform and cope with the future requirements of the tenant Liverpool John Moores University.

As well as the power infrastructure and Cat 6A communications installation, the building’s fit out included a complete new lighting installation which required the carefully considered design of each floor within the building to ensure the required lighting levels and uniformity was achieved and maintained. Moreover, we designed the lighting with cost-efficiency in mind to ensure the client gained their desired aesthetics without incurring increased costs. The new energy efficient LED lighting was installed throughout to increase longevity and less demand on energy consumption. As a result, our clients benefited from superb colour rendering, minimal maintenance costs, enhanced output and massive reduction in energy costs.
