Wieland makes the connection at St Helens

24 February 2015

Wieland Electric’s structured wiring system, Metalynx2 has been used for the connection of power and lighting in the newly redeveloped 5-7 St Helens Place, Bishopsgate, London

Installed and specified by The Designer Group, the Metalynx2 structured wiring system allowed for easy installation on site and maximised productivity.

The 6 storey building owned by The Leathersellers’ Company, one of the ancient livery companies of the City of London, has undergone a complete redevelopment with the front façade retained but the rest of the building demolished and totally rebuilt.

Care had to be taken by construction company Brookfield as the building was next to St Helens Church a grade I listed, 800 year old building with temporary buttressing used to support the ancient building during the reconstruction process.

The use of Wieland’s Metalynx2 at St Helens Place allowed for recessed modular lighting and power to be fed via separate MDB’s with home runs along the containment route out to open plan office areas.

Using the Wieland structured armoured system allowed for 70% reduction in man hours as it comes compete on site for easy connection. Wieland’s extenders, tees and fused spurs were also used to feed LCMs and coil fans on site.

Designer Group UK Managing Director, Mr Nick Baish is quoted as saying “The solution offered by Wieland has reduced our production time and offered a good quality installation with flexibility for future CAT ‘B’ fit out”.

Metalynx2 offers a wide range of benefits that include compact design for easy installation through to fire barriers and stud work walls. The system is designed for the efficient installation of lighting circuits and other power requirements that are located above ceilings - all pre-wired and pre-tested off site. The system also has the benefit of future proofing to allow changes and reconfigurations.
