  • TaskDesign, build and installation of a new switchboard and distribution boards, and power factor correction for the housing developer’s new HQ

Northern Switchgear was appointed by KM Electrical to design and develop electrical switchgear for their client, Bellway Homes, in the development of their new headquarters at AirView business park near Newcastle Airport.

Bellway, the North East housing developer, was the first business to take up residence at the new business park, situated on the south side of the runway. Once completed, the business park will provide 175,000 sq. ft. of premium office accommodation with local, national, and global transport links on the doorstep. The cornerstone of the new business park, Bellway’s flagship premises was designed by their in-house team. The energy efficient building includes conference rooms, high-end training facilities and a large office space. We were delighted to be involved in the development of a new home for the iconic North East business and were careful to ensure that the ethos of energy efficiency and sustainability ran through our designs for the building’s switchboard and panel boards.
This was a high-profile project in many respects – working on a new headquarters for a well-known North East business on a strategically important development that will create huge opportunities for North East business. We knew Northern Switchgear would be the safe pair of hands needed on such a project, and their experience shone through.
