Flexible solution proves ideal for council offices

  • PDF

Modular Wiring Systems, a subsidiary of electrical cable manufacturer Tratos, has designed, manufactured and supplied modular power and lighting distribution systems for Birmingham City Council’s new flagship workplace.


Modular Wiring Systems has designed, manufactured off site and supplied multi functional power and lighting distribution systems with standard Point to Point and switching and DALI control for the new offices. 

Unlike standard builds where the distribution systems are installed from the bottom up with cables running under false ceilings, the Woodcock Street office installation has been a top to bottom installation.  Power is fed from above and cables have been run through raised flooring as there are no false ceilings.

The second floor was a particular challenge, with all cabling fed under an acoustic canopy. 

As a result of the unusual design, flexibility of products and method of installation was vital, which Modular Wiring Systems was able to meet with ease.
