Client: National Trust
Contract Name: Wallington Hall
Duration of Works: 6 months
Completed: Mar 17
Description of Works: Full upgrade of the electrical distribution infrastructure and renewal of all supplies to existing properties site wide.
Wallington Hall is a grade 1 listed building dating back to 1475 and is owned and managed by the National Trust. The original electrical infrastructure had been causing issues with power outages for a number of years. McVickers were appointed by the Trust to upgrade the electrical infrastructure via a new substation to minimise these issues in the future.
New power supplies were installed to all buildings across the estate and careful consideration had to be given to how the power supplies entered the buildings, preferably through existing penetrations and the method of excavating the trenches. Due to the history of the site an Archaeologist was appointed to witness the excavation works at all times.
As the estate is a popular National Trust visitor attraction, the site had to remain open to the public during these works. All works had to be carefully coordinated with the Trust to ensure any planned events wouldn’t be affected and the safety of the public would always be given the highest priority.
