Project Profile

Located in Hornsey in the inner city part of north London this project involved the redevelopment of the two storey Design and Technology block at the Greig City Academy.

The refurbishment involved stripping back the services to the base building. A new electrical supply was run to the existing machinery.

The CAD and technology rooms were provided with new electrical and data supplies and a new ventilation system. A new radiator system was installed to the ground floor to match the first floor. Within the workshops, a new dust extract system was installed and linked to the machinery so that the machinery could not be started without the dust extract system also running. New ‘Emergency Power Off’ buttons were provided to each room which would shut off all equipment while allowing the extract systems to continue running.
