The Project –
Seaview House Redevelopment Project involved the complete demolition of the oldest part of the then existing building back in 2019 while retaining its previous extension comprising of a sports hall and some associated rooms.
After the demolition was complete, the site was made ready for the new build project which would link to the existing sports hall building. Redevelopment included the construction of a new three storey building.
The new building consisted of a new auditorium, a new commercial kitchen and large canteen, office spaces for staff, two floors of dorm rooms for campers, break out spaces and a spacious and welcoming new lobby.
Little Electrical assisted the client, architect (HPA) and the main contractor (HJ O’Boyle) in the early stages of construction to refine the initial electrical proposal to ensure that on completion all expectations would be fulfilled.
Construction under way Little Electrical site installation team joined the main contractor on site in the spring of 2020. Continuing to engage and coordinate with the client, architect, main contractor and other specialists Little Electrical demonstrated a flexible approach to further design development opportunities and additional technologies that were incorporated into the buildings design. The project continued through out 2020 and nearing its completion in the summer of 2021 Little Electrical engaged its team of commissioning engineers to ensure that the project would be completed snag free and fully commissioned by the proposed handover date in September 2021.
