NHS – Morpeth Health Centre

The installation and commissioning of 12 new Mitsubishi Air Source Heat Pumps and pipework

The project has been successfully completed whilst battling a few obstacles.

The delivery of the ASHPs was the biggest issue, due to global shortages of ASHPs this project was rather protracted, taking a lot longer than initially planned.

The installation was carried out over a weekend utilising a contract lift to position the units on to the roof and avoid any potential problems with the staff and public moving around the carpark.


February 2022

I am pleaseed to announce that Michael Huggan has joined us from SES as Contracts Manager.

Having worked with Michael previously I know he is a great asset and is very capable of overseeing the successful delivery of our projects.

Michael has a strong knowledge of electrical systems and testing but also possesses very good leadership and management skills.

Welcome onboard.

Northumberland County Council (Cowley Road Blyth Depot)

Another project underway with one of our key clients, the refurbishment of all the main switchgear, sub distribution boards and EICR remedial works.

This involved working closely with the depot staff and Northern Power Grid, programming in shutdowns and changeover works to avoid any disruption to the day to day depot operations.

The main low bay lighting has also been replaced with a new lighting busbar system and Thorn LED luminaires being installed in a very busy vehicle depot. The preparation of detailed zoning to avoid the fleet traffic has been key to ensure a safe area to work.

Major restoration and water quality improvement

May 2021

Major restoration and water quality improvement works were not without their challenges.

Working to critical timescales we have successfully installed new water tanks and replaced booster sets and pipework within three residential nineteen story tower blocks.

The shutdown and change over operations were meticulously planned to ensure the minimum amount of downtime for people being without water.
