NEWS: Connecting the Northern Power Grid

Home / News / NEWS: Connecting the Northern Power Grid
Comms Room Services specialise in the design, build and refurbishment of modular communications, server and switch rooms, and they contracted Shanco to complete the groundworks for the new Northern Power Grid switch room in Leeds.

An extensive project involving the foundation design and installation of utilities for the switch room. Which included trenches being dug for high voltage cables, reinforced concrete foundations, plus the drainage for the building.

The challenges that came with working in such a high-risk environment meant that very specific buried services procedures had to be followed to avoid accidentally hitting a high voltage cable as this was the main supply of electricity to Leeds!

Comms Room Services needed a quick turnaround on a high risk project, which is exactly what was achieved. The project took around 6 weeks to complete – including the hand excavation of trenches – and reinstatement of hard landscape.
