AJC recently carried out a full rewire and extension for a major Rotherham solicitors and law firm, Bradford & Son, 9 Moorgate Road, Rotherham, South Yorkshire, S60 2EN.
Eton construction were appointed to design the project, for planning and building regulations and carry out any build works and alterations. The extension was built in keeping with the current building using reclaimed bricks, and consisted of disabled access and WC’s.
AJC electrical services were commissioned to carry out the electrical part of the project, which included a full rewire, fire alarm system and various other alterations. The main offices in the Rotherham law firm were to be fitted with standard and emergency recessed 600 x 600 cat 2 light fittings with diffusers thus creating the perfect amount of light without any glare or reflection from the computer screens. We installed surface 3 compartment dado trunking around the entire perimeter of the offices including twin power sockets and twin data ports. We installed a separate ring main to each office to avoid any nuisance tripping and terminated the data cables back to a central communications hub. The entire building was then installed with a L2 fire alarm and emergency lighting system. The extension part of the building consisted of a disabled WC facility which needed a disabled call point alarm installing as well as wash hand driers, extraction and suitable lighting. We installed outside security lighting around the perimeter of the building and decorative wall mounted fittings at the main entrance.
The main challenge in this project was that it was undertaken while the offices were in full operation. We managed to achieve success by working closely with our clients and with an aim to avoiding excessive noise and disturbance. Any major installations had to be carried out, out of hours on nights and at the weekend. AJC electrical services always had the power back on and the offices up and running for opening time which really pleased the business manager.
