Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed a specialist electrical services project at the University of Bath – for the Institute for Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS).

The IAAPS is a world-leading centre of excellence for the for research, innovation, enterprise and education, supporting the future direction of the automotive industry.

Engineers form PTSG Electrical Services Ltd installed a new lightning protection system at the building. They used roof tape and air rods, utilising the steel-framed structure of the IAAPS. At ground level, every piece of steel had a dedicated connection to the floor slab alongside a 10m x 10m grid of conductors buried within the floor slab in and around the test cells. Externally, there was a buried ring conductor with earth rods within bore holes to ensure the overall lightning protection and earthing network was sufficiently low to protect the building in the event of a fault.

PTSG Electrical Services Ltd is the UK’s leading supplier of lightning protection services. Its engineers design, install, test, inspect and repair systems for customers in every conceivable industry sector. It has a large and growing education portfolio and has recently delivered specialist services at St Andrew’s University, Kingston University and the University of Aberdeen.
