CP halves project time at Academy’s new school

Due to a successful partnership with Rawfield M & E, Ridings Consulting Engineers, Eco Modular Buildings and CP Electronics, a North London school has utilised modular plug and play electrical lighting installations to help halve its construction time from six to three months.

Ark Byron Primary Academy has built a new school to increase capacity.

CP Electronics was asked to provide a speedy delivery that met ESFA requirements. A system that could be installed during the offsite construction stage, to speed up the overall build time, was key.

The work required extensive application of the Vitesse Plus and Vitesse Modular products which are easily self-commissioned and simple to fit. They are a quick and cost-effective way to provide schools with a solution to their lighting needs, impacting construction as little as possible.

CP Electronics’ Vitesse Plus and Vitesse Modular lighting products enabled contractors to deliver an off-site construction project three months earlier than planned.

A key advantage of these products was that they saved the contractor significant labour costs, presenting very little challenges to electricians during installation. In simple terms, more lights can be installed in less time.

The Ark Byron collaborative project shows how the education sector can cut costs during refurbishments and new builds whilst simultaneously limiting impact on pupils’ education during building work.

The scheme was so successful that the government is introducing this collaborative way of working and similar building guarantees into other construction lines in different departments, including the Ministry of Justice, Department of Health and the Lord Chancellor’s Office.

Martyn Frear, SBDM at CP Electronics said: “We have worked alongside these three companies before on many occasions, it is a true partnership which ensures success on every project. The labour cost savings as well as installation simplicity has meant that we delivered a project three months earlier than originally planned – fantastic news!”
