Wieland has supplied its Metalynx2 structured wiring system as part of the £20 million refurbishment contract of One Puddle Dock, a 6-storey commercial building in the City of London. The refurbishment included removing existing services, partitions and floor covering of the 10 000 m2 floor space and refurbishing to Cat A standard for the sub-let space.

Other office areas will be fitted out to Cat B standard, which includes new M&E installations, installation of eight new lifts, raised access flooring and new toilet cores on each level.

M&E specialist Gratte Brothers installed the Wieland wiring system for the distribution of all power and lighting supply throughout the building. A variety of Wieland’s extenders, tees and fused spurs were incorporated into the power-supply system.

Gratte site manager Peter Harrison commented, ‘With the project working to extremely tight deadlines, Wieland was very co-operative when it came to packaging and delivery.

‘We made a fairly specific request that the Metalynx2 system we were using for low-level supplies be delivered clearly labelled and boxed per circuit per distribution board.

‘Wieland supplied this exactly to our requirements so that our electricians could go straight to the stored boxes of cables, and all the associated parts were enclosed within that particular box.’
