The Forest School – Horsham

We provided electrical support services in coordination with the mechanical services specialist who replaced the schools entire wet heating system and boiler plant over a period of 18 months.

Our services included:

  • New sub-mains, distribution boards, general power and lighting
  • New cable containment, including: Tray, Steel / PVC conduit and steel trunking
  • Circuits and controls for 45 heating convertors in classrooms, main hall and gym
  • Electrical alterations to facilitate the new heating pipe work installation
  • Provide temporary power to site offices, workshops and welfare facilities
  • Provide on site PAT testing services for all the allied trades tools and equipment
  • Support services to the HVAC controls specialists

During and before the contracted works, the school was experiencing several electrical load issues that finally resulted in a number of major power failures while the students were in their classes. Understandably, a good solution was required urgently. Therefore, we immediately carried out an in-depth survey of almost 100 distribution boards that identified a peculiar load cycle in the daily power demand. To rectify this we quickly provided greater electrical capacity in some parts of the school while carrying out significant rebalancing of the 250Amp three-phase power supply and dedicated 500KVA sub-station.

The school was so pleased with the commitment, professionalism and speed of our services they requested our details from the principal contractor so that they could approach us directly after contract completion to provide electrical services directly for the school.

This project ran along side The Weald School in Billingshurst
