Smeg Warehouse – Electrical, Data Cabling & Air Conditioning Project
SMEG are an Italian domestic appliance manufacturer with distribution warehouses all over the world including in Portsmouth, UK.
2Teck were specifically chosen by SMEG due to our expertise in providing a complete warehouse and office solution for all of the electrical power, lighting, air conditioning and network cabling requirements.
High bay Thorn LED lighting replaced the existing fittings throughout the warehouse and office areas were fitted with LED panels integrated into the suspended ceilings. In addition to the main lighting solution we also provided the emergency lighting and replaced the external lighting system in the loading bays and car park. The result was a highly energy efficient and well illuminated workspace which increased site safety, ease of working and at the same time reduced energy costs by over 50%.
In the warehouse new fork lift charging points were installed together with electrical sockets for general equipment use, the cabling for which was distributed by way of a heavy duty steel cable tray and conduit containment system. In the offices electrical and Cat6 network services were installed within new perimeter dado trunking which keeps everything neat and allows for the easy provision of additional services in the future.
Our communications division deployed the Cat6 network infrastructure to support the IT, wi-fi and CCTV services all of which was cabled back to a new central network cabinet in the server room. We installed dedicated electrical circuits to the server room for the 2Teck supplied and installed UPS (uninterruptible power supply). To keep the IT environment and equipment cool a new Daikin climate control system was installed by our air conditioning division.
