Case study

A new electrical connection for the conversion of a 15-floor office block into apartments

Churchill Plaza is an iconic building in Basingstoke. The previous regional headquarters of Barclays Bank has been converted into 283 apartments and 7 luxury penthouses over 15 storeys.

The Challenge

​* The redevelopment required a 1MVA package substation contained within the building fabric together with individually metered supplies in each apartment.

Our Solution

* The Rock Team installed a HV supply from the distribution network to the new onsite substation.

* The LV mains network was then run through the risers in the building through a series of Multi Service Distribution Boards (MSDBs).

* Each supply as terminated in a cut out in each apartment.

“The most challenging part of this project was the installation of the 300mm LV cable from the substation, through the car park and up through the risers. This work was completed using winches and pulleys to manipulate the cables into position. “
