CONTRACT NEWS POWER OF SCOTLAND Evolt has been selected by the Energy Saving Trust (EST) as one of the companies to provide EV charging solutions on a new Scotland-wide framework agreement. The new framework includes the right to tender, be selected, or quote for the installation of rapid, commercial and domestic charging units on the mainland and in the Highlands and Islands. The announcement follows a full tender and is effective immediately to an initial expiry date of December 2018. Having established itself as a significant player on the Scottish EV charge point supplier market over the past five years, Evolt has supplied in excess of 1,100 charging points to 24 local councils and many private businesses in Scotland. Included in the 1,100 Evolt charge points installed in Scotland are 85 of the Evolt Rapid chargers. Each unit can efficiently charge two EVs to 80 per cent of their battery life within 30 minutes through a 50kW DC and 43kW AC outlet. THE RIGHT TRACK ABB has used Ellis’ innovative Cable Guide Clamp to install HV cables in the Kensal Green section of National Grid’s Crossrail Connection Scheme in London. Designed to feed, and then restrain, large diameter cables along routes that feature significant numbers of twists and turns, Ellis’ Cable Guide Clamp was used by ABB on SGT1 and SGT2 transformer end cable sealing support structures. Ellis’ Cable Guide Clamp works in two stages. Firstly, cables are guided by it into their final location, while trumpeted entry and exit points ensure the cable is not damaged when fed through particularly sharp angled turns. Once the cable is laid correctly, the top half of the guide is removed, a fixing piece installed directly onto the cable and the top half resecured, thus turning it into a fully functioning HV cable clamp. Crossrail is a new railway for London and the South East. Aimed at improving journey times across London, easing congestion and improving connections, it features 42km of new tunnels and will deliver a 10 per cent increase to London’s rail capacity when it opens in 2019. TENANTS IN TWEED Berwickshire Housing Association (BHA) has installed smoke and heat alarm systems from Aico to keep tenants safe in their homes. BHA has 1,800 homes in Berwickshire and Berwick-upon-Tweed, from single flats and family homes to bungalows adapted for disabled people and sheltered housing for older people. Aico’s new mains powered multi-sensor fire alarm, Ei2110e, will be installed throughout all of these properties over the coming years. In addition to the multi-sensors, BHA will be installing Ei450 alarm controllers to allow tenants to test and silence alarms on the system, plus locate the trigger alarm, all from a safe, accessible location. Aico’s fire/CO alarm interface, Ei414, will also be installed. The installation work has already begun, starting in BHA’s empty properties, with the aim of bringing them up to the more stringent LD2 category of fire protection. To meet this, multi-sensors will be installed in the main living area and will be replacing optical and ionisation alarms on exit routes. This will be rolled out to all BHA’s housing stock over time. TRUNKING IN TORBAY Marshall-Tufflex’s Odyssey trunking system’s curved profile and smooth lines have ensured a sleek look at a new office development in Torbay. Supplied by Newey & Eyre in Plymouth, Odyssey was installed as part of a £1m makeover of Kings Ash House, comprising of a full internal fit out to create 30 modern, multi-use offices, completed by the Torbay Development Agency (TDA). Out of operation for a number of years, the repurposed building is now providing a much needed resource for local businesses; a significant contribution to Torbay’s ongoing regeneration, implemented to encourage investment in the town. Data compliant Odyssey trunking has a builtin cable tray for fast and easy installation and three part tee to provide full cable segregation. EMI screening is available with no reduction in cable capacity. Adjustable bends mean Odyssey is suitable for difficult angles and building intolerances, and it complies with Part M of the Building Regulations thanks to a range of coloured accessory boxes. The boxes feature Odyssey’s unique flange design which contrasts with the trunking and standard white plate accessories to meet the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) regulations for visual impairment. PRIMARY PROTECTION PEL Services has completed the installation of site-wide access control, CCTV and intruder alarm systems at the smartly reinvented and redeveloped Westbrook Primary School in Hounslow, West London. The new state-of-the-art school building and grounds, costing £10.58m and teaching 665 pupils aged from three to 11, has an ingenious space configuration cleverly arranged to allow the local community to also benefit from its excellent facilities out of school hours – including three halls – whilst securing access to the main teaching areas. To provide maximum protection from unauthorised visitors, whilst ensuring unhampered pupil and staff access, PEL Services has installed a Paxton Net2 proximity access control system to all perimeter doors and gates (including the barrier protected car park), the school’s sporting and meeting halls, doors that lead from reception into the school and on IT rooms which house potentially valuable equipment. Fifteen entrances in total are protected and the system has approximately 100 users. Perimeter entrances also benefit from a video door entry system, integrated into the access control system by PEL. Westbrook further benefits from a HikVision IP networked CCTV system featuring 22 dome day/night vision cameras which have been installed by PEL to monitor the school’s perimeter external grounds, corridors and reception. SENIOR ROLE LJJ has been awarded a £3.5m building services contract as part of the £16m development of a 96 bed luxury care and assisted living scheme by Signature Senior Lifestyle in Sunninghill, Berkshire. Designed by PRP Architects with interiors by Leisure Concepts, the scheme continues LJJ’s relationship with Signature Senior Lifestyle, following three previous projects completed in Brentwood, Marlow and Kingston Upon Thames. Sunninghill is the first project that the building services specialist will deliver for main contractor Wates Construction. LJJ is responsible for developing concept design and installation of all building services. The company started on site at the end of April, with ground floor sample rooms completed by September 2016 and a marketing suite operational by December 2016. The whole scheme, due for completion in May 2017, is being delivered by LJJ’s Southern office based in High Wycombe. The luxury new build senior lifestyle and assisted living complex comprises a mix of ensuite one bedroomed apartments and en-suite studio apartments all with kitchenette. Specialist dementia care en-suite bedrooms are provided on the third floor. Facilities will include a cinema, hair salon, library, restaurant, bistro, fine dining and café area. 8 CONTRACT NEWS THE RIGHT TRACK POWER OF SCOTLAND Evolt has been selected by the Energy Saving Trust (EST) as one of the companies to provide EV charging solutions on a new Scotland-wide framework agreement.
