Havells has supplied a brand new Volkswagen dealership in Watford with its Tri-Load and QuikWire metering solutions. VW Watford also has a full sized workshop with space for 40 vehicles integrated into the rear of the building. For this reason, it was important high specification electrical equipment was installed, with an energy management solution that was both safe and reliable.
Electrical contractor, Cass Electric worked alongside the electrical consultant to design and install LV distribution equipment for the new dealership, consisting of lighting (internal, external and emergency), small power, fire alarms and a staff call alarm to the disabled toilets. In addition, electrical supplies were required for the workshop which contained specialist equipment including car lifts, compressors and an exhaust fume extraction system.
As a new build, another high priority was the need to future-proof the building and the energy management system was no exception. To this end, Havells metering products were used so the end-user can easily understand and monitor the energy usage in the building in accordance with Part L2 of the Building Regulations.
Cass Electric used a Havells 400A MCCB Panelboard with the 8 looped QuikWire Meters and four 125A Type B distributions boards including the Havells Tri-Load.
“Due to Part L2 regulations on energy consumption and performance in buildings, it’s essential to really understand how a building consumes energy,” said Ian Tasker, director of Cass Electric. “The dealership in Watford is the latest Volkswagen showroom and built to the highest specification, due to this we opted for a Havells Tri-Load distribution board – it’s unique within integrated metering boards as it creates relevant energy data that is split out into three sections. This will allow far better analysis of energy performance than a standard metered board where there is just one reading. “
