Case study

Dobbies Leicester

The Challenge:

Our client Gridserve, are a market leading charge point operator who are installing Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure across the UK.

Our remit was to design and construct a 12-bay charging infrastructure through a High Voltage connection comprising of 8 chargers in a garden centre car park.

Our Approach

Our approach to the project begins with initial feasibility surveys, topographic underground surveys and design on how best to fit and accommodate the necessary infrastructure within the lease area. These designs are for both electrical and civil engineering works. 

We engage with the local distribution network, in this case National Grid, to secure a connection and help to manage both the legal and operational process to ensure this takes place as per program.

Once designs are signed off, we can start works on site, beginning with the civils work of installing bases, cable trenches etc. Electricians then follow, landing, installing and wiring the charging equipment and switchgear.

Safety is at the heart of all that we do and at the forefront of our approach. From setting up a safe construction site, to managing contractors, safe digging practices and electrical installations. No stone is left unturned in making sure processes are followed and correct documentation is complete to ensure the health and safety of both people on site and members of the public in the vicinity of the construction site.

The Results

First and foremost, the project was completed without any accidents, injuries or lost working hours. The handover of the project to the client was completed without the need for any remedial works or snags, and was to the highest level of quality and safety. This is exactly the level we strive for, and will serve us well when tendering for more work from this highly respected client

“I would highly recommend Chris Rigby across any project, due to many factors but especially on his communication and knowledge. Chris has been great across the multiple projects that myself and Chris I have had to deal with. Whenever there has been an issue on site, Chris has been open and honest and always has a solution to fix the issue. Gridserve expect a high standard across all projects and I can honestly say Chris has gone above and beyond all expectations. I look forward to working on more projects with Chris soon.”
