Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has been awarded a contract to provide a lighting protection system at a new residential-led scheme at 255 Ealing Road in Brent, North London.

The development, known as “Marvelfairs”, will consist of a building complex of up to nine storeys, which will contain 125 new homes for the Metropolitan Housing Association. The project, which includes community units, will be built to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and BREEAM excellent for the community buildings.

The company’s Electrical Services division will be installing a lightning protection system, fitted in accordance with the current BSEN 62305 standard. Much of the work will take place at height and will require engineers to adopt safe access methods of working to complete the installation.

Metropolitan, a member of the G15 London housing association group, plans to build around 3,300 new affordable homes in the next five years, investing £730m.

PTSG has developed strong partnerships with many UK housing associations, providing a range of niche specialist services to enable the safe and efficient operations of affordable housing. In addition to lightning protection services, PTSG provides wet and dry riser and fire hydrant testing, fall arrest testing and planned preventative maintenance for associations such as Great Places Housing, Genesis Housing and Stockport Homes to name a few.
