PME Projects, electrical contractors Warrington showed yet again its prowess for precision planning and meticulous delivery during the data cabling installation for the warehouse extension at Burnley based retailer The Original Factory Shop during August 2012.

One of the fastest growing retailers in the UK with over 180 stores across the country The Original Factory Shop retail a wide variety of goods for all ages and genders including clothing, footwear, cosmetics and fragrance, fashion accessories, electrical goods, housewares, home furnishings and toys.

Retail Electrical Contractors Warrington

They needed to be sure they appointed an retail electrical contractors with a proven track record of high quality installations, in a challenging timeframe, within a warehouse environment. PME's experience in warehouse lighting installtions, power and data installations made us a natural choice.

Once the site had been surveyed, plans drawn and refined, specifications agreed, quotation submitted and revised, risk assessments and method statements were undertaken, PME's electrical installtion team of NICEIC accredited electricians were able to commence the on-site works.

Commissioned to design, specify and install the infrastructure for the Client's new warehouse management system, PME worked hand-in-hand with its longstanding hardware partner to complete the project over a four-week period.

The supply and installation of the infrastructure of fibre backbone and copper cabling to the 36 Wireless Access Points (WAPs) for the new Radio Frequency (RF) solution presented a small challenge to the two experienced teams from PME, but nothing they hadn't successfully overcome before.

Power supplies were required to the new main communications cabinet as well as both power and data to the workstations in the despatch area.

With the warehouse in operation 24/7, and Client staff working within the extremely busy environment throughout, Health & Safety considerations were a major factor in the planning and implementation of the data cabling installation.

Meticulous planning and execution, jointly between PME electricians and the Client, avoided any disruption whatsoever to the Client's operations and ensured the works were completed on time and to the agreed budget. Another satisfied customer!

Paul Moore, Director of PME Electricians Warrington, was delighted with the delivery of the project:

"We were able to apply our knowledge and expertise from similar data cabling installation projects to ensure the project ran like clockwork, from start to finish. Good planning was key to meeting the timescales, safeguarding the welfare of all personnel and maintain normal operations for the Client."
