Wieland, modular wiring

Wieland Electric’s Metalynx2 modular wiring system was the preferred choice for all power and lighting distribution throughout the refurbishment of 30 Broadwick Street in Soho, central London. The project has a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and was part of a £30 million scheme for a new retail and office complex for building owner Great Portland Estates.

The project involved partial demolition of a number of existing buildings and reconstruction of a new 12 000 m2 development.

The Metalynx2 system was specified and installed by BAM Construction throughout all six levels of office space.

Robert Biddle, project manager at BAM Construction, commented, ‘We required a system that could be delivered to meet our tight deadlines, and the Metalynx2 system fitted our brief perfectly.

‘Having a system arrive on site pre-tested and pre-wired allowed us to maximise the productivity on site. Should any layouts be changed or reconfigured at a later date, the Metalynx2 system provides total flexibility to accommodate this.’
