Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed a series of specialist electrical repairs at the Royal Hall in Harrogate.

The Royal Hall is a Grade II listed performance hall and theatre. With local benefactors led by engineering inventor Samson Fox, the building opened in 1903 as the Kursaal. In the 1950s, like many theatres converted into a cinema but looking for alternative uses, the venue helped in the formation and growth of Harrogate as a conference and exhibition centre.

The Royal Hall is an important national heritage building, with Harrogate acknowledged as a top UK event destination and home to Harrogate International Centre. By 1997 the Royal Hall needed renovation, and in 2001, English Heritage put the building on the national “buildings at risk” register.

Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd have delivered repairs to the lightning protection system in place at the Royal Hall, ensuring that the building and its users continue to be protected in the event of an electrical storm.

PTSG works on buildings of all kinds, in all industry sectors, to deliver a full range of specialist services to keep them safe, protected and fully operational. It is especially satisfying to deliver services to buildings such as the Royal Hall in Harrogate, helping to ensure they are preserved for future generations to enjoy.
