Tremorfa were appointed in June 2017 to carry out works to modify blocks H & P including, installation of general purpose distribution and small power system, installation of general lighting system, alterations to the fire alarm system and new door access.

Both blocks required new panel boards and sub mains. All lighting installations comprised of LED normal and emergency lighting.
One block required extra fire detection and an additional interface whilst the other needed a complete rewire. Finally, new access door control was fitted with a fire alarm interface alongside the control box.
Tremorfa provided all these services on time, to the specification and to budget. Having worked with Cardiff University in the past on other projects, a practical cost-effective job was inevitable and delivered.

Client: AWE
Contractor: Tremorfa Ltd
Location: Southern England
Contract Value: £500,000.00

The Atomic Weapons Enterprise based in southern England provides and maintains nuclear warheads for the Ministry of Defence and is recognised as a centre for scientific, engineering and technological excellence, equipped with some of the most advanced research, design and production facilities in the world.

Tremorfa were contracted to carry out an electrical installation on this site.

As was to be expected, the security on this site operated at the highest possible level, and meant that each of our suppliers had to be security vetted. We had to provide names and vehicle registration of all suppliers and any other vehicles at least 24 hours in advance, as well as make sure each driver had photographic ID on their person.  Engineers on site also had to operate under the most stringent of security situations, including how to react in a terrorist situation.
During this install, a number of contractors were asked to leave site because they did not meet the strict security rules laid out by AWE.  Not only did Tremorfa remain on site, but we were also asked to carry out the outstanding work of those that had been removed.
