MENZIES DISTRIBUTION ELECTRICAL & DATA INSTALLATION
As part of a business restructure Menzies Distribution were looking to add additional semi-automated packing machinery into their Newbridge depot, this of course had a knock on effect to the other services within the branch.
We required to liaise and work with the business Project team to ensure the daily and nightly productions were not effected, this meant we worked out-with the production times of the existing services and ensured these were back up and operational for the business to utilise at their normal times.
The electrical & data installation involved re-directing sub main electrical cabling, installing and relocating three phase distribution boards and sub circuits, fibre optic and data cabling to various equipment, along with various steel structures (stanchions) that we have become renowned for building within the Menzies portfolio.
The client now has two fully operation magazine packing machines with electrical sub distribution boards and fibre optic data links and no services were disrupted during the project. We also facilitated various changes made to their newspaper packing layout.
Working in conjunction with the site management team and other trade contractors on site, we provided a phased solution to work on the production areas at agreed times. This required our engineers to pre plan the works allowing enough time to reassemble the equipment in time for the newspaper night packing, early morning returns procedures and daily magazine packs, all in a 24hr working environment.
The client and local management team saw the transformation to their branch with no adverse effect on the business whilst carrying out normal daily and nightly operations and all within a very tight budget.
