Wieland supports fast installation in new City office building

Wieland, structured cabling
Metalynx structured wiring from Wieland Electric saved considerable amounts of time for the electrical installation in this new office building in the City of London.

Wieland Electric has supplied its Metalynx armoured structured-wiring system to enable fast connection of lighting, small power and fan-coil units at Riverbank House in the City of London. This 10-storey building is the new headquarters of global investment manager Man Group and provides 29 000 m2 of office space.

Using Metalynx structured wing enables many of the connections to be made off site and simply plugged in on site. With over 6500 lighting fittings and 800 fan-coil units to connect, this plug-and-play functionality proved invaluable.

Much of the office space is column-free open plan, so lighting control is important to prevent energy being wasted. All lighting is controlled through a DALI network, and the control cabling was integrated into the Metalynx structured-wiring system to save time on site.

All mechanical and electrical services were specified by consulting engineers Hurleypalmerflatt.
