The ‘Cathedral of Science’ opens in London

Named after Francis Crick who discovered the helix structure of DNA, Europe’s largest biomedical research institute welcomed the first Scientists last week. ETS Cable Components are proud to have been involved with the electrical infrastructure installation of this mega construction project. The funding comes from a partnership of: Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK, Imperial College London, Kings College London (KCL), Wellcome Trust and University College London (UCL).  

ETS worked with the appointed M&E sub-contractors, including those working on the Low and medium voltage cable installation to ensure all cable accessories were delivered on time to meet all target ‘power on’ dates.

Due to the challenges of this site being developed in a heavily built up area on central London, 45% of the building was preassembled off site. ETS designed and supplied custom made earthbars to Laing O’Rourke’s offsite manufacturing division, to form part of their own modules, which in turn were delivered to site ‘just in time’.
