Aerodrome Road, Light Industrial Units

Background

The scope of this project was to construct from new 8 steel frame industrial units on reclaimed industrial land between 2 high speed railway lines. In addition to the units a new permanent road was installed along with upgrades to the existing drainage and utility services.

Problem/Issues

The existing electricity substation located at the centre of the site which powered the police training academy along with housing situated next door to the site was unsuitable to provide enough extra power for the requirements of the new units.

 

Solution

A new substation had to be installed at the entrance to the site, along with upgrades to all feed cables, a new ring main down to Aerodrome Road was also allowed for in the design to alleviate the power loses to the training academy as had been experienced in the past.
