A two story extension to the Ridings building has been created to house a ground floor substation and first floor electrical switch room. Electrical contractors, BCS Electrics, Leeds were responsible for the new distribution equipment including switchboards, section boards, submain cables and containment. BCS Electrics also managed the modification of the existing installation to integrate the switchboard and generator control system as well as the installation of a standby generator and associated requirements for the Service Centre. This ensures should the worst happen the hospital have the backup and electrical support throughout without delay.
The nature of the upgrade meant there were a number of other contractors involved. The BCS Electrics management team coordinated their work to ensure timescales were hit and the project ran smoothly and in budget.
As a Leeds based commercial electricians, BCS Electrics look after a number of buildings in the health sector, installing and maintaining electrical works to ensure they are fully operational at all times. A 24/7 call out service for clients gives extra reassurance electricians can be on site to work on the unexpected, when needed most. Keeping businesses (and hospitals) switched on and powered up.
