Proteus fully fit for purpose in sports pavillion



East Dunbartonshire Council, in partnership with East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture (EDLC) Trust, are fulfilling a long standing ambition to provide a community sports hub at Huntershill, Bishopbriggs.

Plans include: a full-size, all-weather sports pitch with floodlighting and fencing; sports pavilion with 10 changing rooms, recreation hall and more; three floodlit, all-weather tennis courts; and a six-lane athletics track. The total cost of the project is now estimated at £7.8million.

Main electrical contractors Moffat Electrical Services Ltd proposed Proteus Industrial Switchgear to electrical consultants Atkins Global UK  for the incoming mains supply.

The installation consisted of various wall mounting IP3X distribution boards, split load boards and MCCB panel boards, fully fitted with devices, surge protection and metering. The direct dialogue with the installation contractors estableshed the exact requiriments and meant that each board was purpose-made to their exact specifications. The boards then arrived on site fully assembled saving valuable time to the installing engineers.   

Alan Hay, Estimating Director of the Moffat Group said “We have used Proteus over many years and do so whenever we can. Having the units pre-built at the factory was a great time saver and allowed us to complete all the quicker”.
