This will protect university students, fellows and their families in the event of lightning, which strikes the UK up to 300,000 times a year.
Working to a sustainability matrix, Croft Gardens demonstrates excellence in: health and wellbeing; landscape and nature; water, materials and waste; community and neighbourhood; and construction impacts. Residents benefit from generous gardens and communal areas, soft water-struck gault clay external bricks and handmade plain roof tiles which infer a sense of the monolithic and reference the surrounding vernacular materials.
PTSG’s Electrical Services consultants have the experience to survey any building and produce a report advising on the most effective and efficient means of protecting it from ground strikes and power surges. This service is provided both for new builds and retro-fit installations and includes expert advice when engaged at the beginning of the design process.
