Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) will begin work to provide lightning protection at a shopping centre extension in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

The Beacon, the name for the rebranded Eastbourne Arndale Shopping Centre, is currently undergoing an £85million revamp and extension, which is due to be complete by Christmas 2018. The new centre will contain an additional 22 retail units, seven restaurants and an eight-screen cinema, to complement the existing range of shops.

PTSG’s specialist lightning protection engineers will attend the site to install lightning protection to the shopping centre and its multi-storey car park. The systems will be installed to BSEN 62305 standards, ensuring they protect building users in the event of a lightning strike.

PTSG’s Electrical Services division provides a range of services, including a complete package of lightning protection works. The Group has delivered niche specialist services at an impressive portfolio of UK shopping centres, including Centrale in Croydon, ONE in Liverpool, Meadowhall in Sheffield and Silverburn in Glasgow.
