Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has won a contract to install lightning protection at the site of the new Athletes’ Village in Perry Barr, where the Commonwealth Games will take place in 2022.

Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd will install a new lightning protection system on Plot 7 of the development. Plot 7 – Station Plaza – is divided into two distinct areas: the housing block and the ‘marker’ building creating a public space fronting the development, and a courtyard between the housing blocks.

Birmingham City Council has authority to make acquisitions in the Perry Barr area to deliver a regeneration scheme for the Commonwealth Games in 2022, which includes the Athletes’ Village, significant transport and connectivity improvements, improvements to the environment and new commercial and residential developments.

PTSG is the UK’s leading provider of lightning protection services and electrical compliance services. One of the Group’s constituent companies, JW Gray, is believed to be the oldest trading lightning protection company in the UK, possibly even in Europe.
