Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed a contract to deliver specialist electrical services at the renowned Royal College of Art (RCA) in London.

The RCA was founded in Somerset House in 1837 as the Government School of Design or Metropolitan School of Design. It has Campuses in South Kensington, Battersea and White City and is the only entirely postgraduate art and design university in the United Kingdom. It offers postgraduate degrees in art and design to students from over 60 countries.

Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd installed a new lightning protection at the Battersea campus, which houses Ceramics and Glass, Contemporary Art Practice, Jewellery and Metal, Painting, Photography and Print programmes from the School of Arts & Humanities, as well as InnovationRCA, the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design and the College’s professional services teams.

The new system will provide vital protection to the physical structures of the campus as well as all its users in the event of an electrical storm. PTSG is the UK’s leading provider of lightning and surge protection services.
