Type –  Full electrical rewire of the lighting and small power throughout the main building.
Project Value – £500k
Duration – 18 weeks


Christchurch School was a 16-week project valued at £500,000 + managed by Longley’s Sam Duggan, Redbridge Council’s Project Lead Shamim Ahmed with Consultant Project Lead Michael Perschky and Technical Consultant Scott Tillsley from Ingleton Wood.

The project included a full lighting and power replacement throughout the main building. Suppliers used were Eaton for the electrical distribution and lighting suppliers Thorlux. All building works and redecoration associated with facilitating the installation was achieved and all within the original contract timescales.

Following the current Covid-19 regulations and social distancing it was necessary to work with a reduced team on site which proved challenging. The school was occupied with teachers and essential keyworker’s children during the project therefore it was imperative to separate the trades entering the premises. This was achieved whilst maintaining the program and remaining within the short timeframes, without effecting the high standard of work. Works were strategically planned with the school’s senior leadership team to avoid any risk to the pupils and staff, enabling them to attend the premises. Longley ensure all the team are fully compliant and follow strict health and safety procedures at all times.
