Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has been contracted to provide specialist electrical services at the University of Birmingham. 

The University of Birmingham is a public research university located in Edgbaston, Birmingham, United Kingdom. It received its royal charter in 1900 as a successor to Queen’s College, Birmingham, and Mason Science College, making it the first English civic or ‘red brick’ university to receive its own royal charter. 

The main campus of the university occupies a site some 3 miles (4.8 km) south-west of Birmingham city centre, in Edgbaston. It is arranged around Joseph Chamberlain Memorial Clock Tower (affectionately known as ‘Old Joe’ or ‘Big Joe’), a grand campanile which commemorates the university’s first chancellor, Joseph Chamberlain. 

Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd are working to deliver a new HVI power conductor installation to protect a very large flue being constructed on site at the School of Metallurgy and Materials – on the Edgbaston campus. Such installations give a high level of protection to buildings and users in the event of an electrical storm.
