Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed a specialist electrical services project at the University of Northampton.
The University of Northampton formed in 1999 by the amalgamation of a number of training colleges, and gained full university status as the University of Northampton in 2005.
The university has various types of halls of residence on its two older campuses, with just over 1,600 rooms. Most first-year students live in halls, and few second- or third-years do so. Many of them live in the Abington area, north-east of the town centre. The main halls are now located in the student village of the Waterside Campus, and include Francis Crick; Margaret Bondfield; John Clare; and Charles Bradlaugh. A former ground-floor flat in the latter is a multi-faith Chaplaincy Centre, and another in John Clare houses the Centre for Community Volunteering; Bassett-Lowke.
In this contract, engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd completed a test and inspection of the lightning protection system in place at the university, in compliance with British standards. If any areas are found to need maintenance in such inspections, PTSG’s engineers are fully trained and experienced to carry out the necessary work to ensure the system remains fully operational.
