Project Description

  • Talke 16 warehouse, Stoke

  • Electrical and lighting installation including inspection and testing

Talke 16 is a 180,100 SQ FT refurbished warehouse and manufacturing facility based in Stoke. In 2018, we completed a project at the site which cost around £300k. The work was carried out throughout the building and included two new main switch panels, new mains distribution boards, small power distribution and new LED lighting installation over the entire square footage.

As the new incoming tenant inherited a mains and sub mains distribution system which was obsolete and in poor condition, it was decided that a new mains distribution system throughout the building would be installed, starting from the two existing LV substations and switchrooms. The systems were designed to suit the demand, application, and location. This ensured Talke 16 benefited from enhanced usability and practicality. Plus, to ensure electrical safety, the installation was NICEIC inspected, tested, and certified to British standards and the current IEE Regulations.

Our in-house and approved lighting specialists, Ozone Lighting Solutions, surveyed the warehouse’s existing lighting and carried out energy and maintainability assessments. New energy-efficient lighting was installed featuring low-energy LED luminaires with a lifetime in excess of 50,000 hours with less than half of the energy demands than the traditional fittings, incorporating intelligent lighting controls which monitor occupancy levels and lets the user make decisions of where low and high traffic areas are to place stock in the correct area to reduce energy usage further. The new lighting installation ensured Talke 16 benefited from low maintenance and cost efficiency while gaining increased light quality.

Upon completion the project was tested, commissioned and the building handed back to the client.
