Lowe Electrical completes work at the new De Montfort University Food Village

April 2016

With over 20 years’ experience that has seen growth and success for Lowe Electrical, working as electrical contractors to the education sector continues to demand the highest level of vision, skill and working practice.

Lowe has worked with Leicester’s De Montfort University for over 10 years and is excited to be part of the £136 million campus transformation currently underway.

As part of the construction of the university’s new Vijay Patel Building, which will house its art and design courses, Lowe Electrical was appointed to work on the building’s new Food Village, opening mid-April.

The Food Village offers staff and students of the University a first class dining experience in beautifully designed and crafted surroundings.

Lowe Electrical has been working on this project with foodservice design experts; CDS Wilman and contract catering leaders; Chartwells, who are part of the Compass Group. The collaboration has proved to be a major success and one that Lowe Electrical’s Managing Director Jon Lowe says has been a positive, productive and enjoyable experience.

We have been responsible for all the electrical design and installation work, including the lighting, catering units, power outlets, mechanical supplies, security card access and emergency systems.

The project at DMU has been an exciting and rewarding venture. A team of six Lowe engineers has been working for over six months, managing and delivering the vision that the University set out to achieve. We are incredibly proud of our achievements and look forward to including this in our portfolio.

Regent sixth-form college

Regent College is a sixth-form facility located in Leicester city centre.

The electrical systems around the College required updating and upgrading to ensure the institution met its safety obligations and stayed within regulation.

A full site survey and consultation with the Principal was carried out enabling Lowe Electrical to produce an individual, modernised lighting and power scheme.
• The Sports Department changing facility was altered so that the lighting system worked more efficiently and ensured adequate safety
• Dining room and Café lighting was modernised and improved with the installation of decorative fittings
• A new power and data system was installed in the IT rooms and in addition a comfort cooling system was installed
• To improve energy efficiency, new lighting controls were installed throughout the College and alterations made to the incoming electrical service and main switchgear.

As a result of the recent upgrades and improvements, the College’s energy consumption has proved to be far more efficient and the overall appearance and ambience has greatly improved.

Lowe Electrical has a long-standing relationship with the College and continues to provide it with a 24-hour electrical maintenance service as well as routine services such as EL testing.
