So the summer holidays are upon us and so starts the crazy season at Powercor!
The longest of the school breaks generally has us requiring twice as much labour as normal. It is an incredibly busy period with a huge influx of work from the Schools and Colleges we look after, whilst also having to maintain our current ongoing contracts.
It is a testing time but a gratifying one too.
We are proud to work for a full spectrum of Educational Centres, from the Prestigious Private Schools to the Public Sector Schools, Special Education Schools and Higher Education Colleges, we undertake a vast selection of different tasks.
What are we carrying out this Summer?
This Summer we are carrying out 5 yearly EICR’s at St Georges College Weybridge, ACS Egham, Bracknell & Wokingham College and Meath School Ottershaw.
Following the completion of EICR’s last Summer we are now also carrying out the resulting recommended remedial works at Feltonfleet School Cobham and St Georges College Junior School in Weybridge.
Due to the long breaks (some are 8 weeks!) it is also the prime time that the customer chooses to carry out upgrades and refurbishment projects that are normally difficult to undertake at any other time of the year.
We are involved in no less than 12 projects at St Georges College which span the entirety of the summer break. New Main’s upgrade cable supplies are being installed at Handcross Park School, Haywards Heath and a new build installation at St Josephs School in Hanwell.
Being a proud ‘Value added Partner’ with Philips Lighting, it enables us to offer our customers fantastic rates and savings on market leading luminaires and controls. Hence multiple lighting projects being carried out at ACS Egham, ACS Hillingdon, Shrewsbury Lodge Esher and Walthamstow Hall.
Powercor are also the installation partner for ecoDriver Smart Metering, of which we are installing to all mains gas, water and electric meters at Sutton Valence Maidstone, as well as further upgrades to the system at ACS Cobham and Lady Eleanor Holles Hampton.
So with our spread of expertise in all fields of electrical installation, sustainability and new technologies we are proud to be part of this wealth of projects with these fantastic customers.
A lot of effort goes into ensuring these projects are completed effectively and most importantly in time as the start of term dates are not negotiable! When the projects are complete and the customer is again happy with the finished product provided, the wealth of paperwork ensues!
We provide full Electrical Services, Energy Saving & Sustainability Solutions along with Facilities Management and much more
