REL was established more than 60 years ago and is a family-owned business who works to provide mechanical and electrical packages for clients who are a part of the industrial, commercial, leisure, educational and residential sectors. The company has completed a major electrical contract for a new college at the Ebury Centre which is located in London. The contract has been competed by REL on behalf of Bouygues UK.
The M&E contractor have delivered the £1.5 million contract which forms a part of the £35 million mixed use scheme which is being constructed in London. The project has been designed by Sheppard Robson and is being built by Bouygues UK for the development company Linkcity. The Ebury Centre will merge educational facilities with the provision of a 10 storey residential development. The construction is taking place on a site next to the Ebury Bridge in London.
REL’s involvement on this project consisted of the installation of the electrical services at the new 5,200 sq. m. University Technical College. The new facility will deliver the space for 550 pupils and also includes workshops that can be used for engineering as well as a gym and sports facilities and a large outdoor terrace. Kershaw Mechanical Services awarded the electrical services contract to REL, and the two companies worked together in the past to install lighting, security systems and access control as well as 120 solar panels on the roof of the development.
The work that was specified as part of this Ebury contract was offered on a tight schedule, however, REL managed to successfully deliver the project within 10 months. The company had to make sure that the electrical elements that were installed met the high environmental targets that had been laid out by the UTC and have also been designed in order to meet the BREEAM Excellent Standard.
