Case study

Substation and individual metering for a large apartment development

Granville Lofts is a development of 112 apartments in a prime waterfront location in Birmingham city centre.

The development required a 500kVA package substation installed in an internal room and an extensive internal LV network involving a series of MSDBs to provide individual metering within each apartment.

Our Solution

* The Point of Connection to the distribution network was directly outside the substation room, but it required the Rock Team to liaise with the council in order to excavate a busy footpath. Timing was critical.

* In total, over 4km of service cable was installed. This included very long Low Voltage (LV) cable runs from the substation, through the basement area and up to the ground floor risers where the MSDBs were located.

“The conditions onsite were challenging, especially with the long cable runs, but by working closely with the developer, we successfully energised on schedule.”
