Wieland structured wiring helps regenerate Uxbridge building
Wieland Electric has supplied its Metalynx2 structured wiring system to distribute power and lighting in the newly redeveloped Belmont in the centre of Uxbridge. With the use of these products, the project exceeds regulatory requirements in the provision of a sustainable and innovative solution. It is anticipated that the Cat A office redevelopment will result in the building achieving a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
The £30 million redevelopment of this 11 600 m2 office saw the building stripped back to its frame and rebuilt to create a Grade A office scheme. Light-filled, agile open-plan floor plates averaging 2500 m2 have been created over five levels.
Belmont has been designed to suit a sole corporate occupier or as a multi-let development.
This structured-wiring system was specified by M&E contractor Phoenix ME to supply lighting and power to the office spaces and lighting in the landlord’s core areas.
Phoenix installed Wieland home runs in the ceiling voids to serve lighting-control modules (LCMs) and fan-coil units (FCUs) using Wieland’s lighting and power extender cables fixed to the soffits.
The FCUs have been supplied with Wieland’s fused-spur connections to connect to the power extenders.
The LCMs have lighting tees that connect with the lighting extenders. For landlord areas, each light fitting has a lighting tee already connected so that leads can be plugged in as light fittings are installed.
