Replacement School at the Base of Grenfell Tower

As commercial electrical contractors, John Wright Electrical and Mechanical Services Ltd provide electrical services to business of all sizes across the UK. We work with a huge range of clients; from completing works in excess of £1million for national businesses and major government departments, to electrical small works. We pride ourselves on providing incredibly high response times for any emergency electrical works, making sure our clients' business developments and electrical repairs are taken care of as quickly and efficiently as possible. This quick response time was a huge factor in completing electrical works at Kensington Aldridge Academy, at the base of the Grenfell Tower, London.

Kensington Aldridge Academy is a secondary school located at the base of the Grenfell Tower, and was damaged in the tragic fire in June last year. When a fully functional replacement school had to be built in just 9 weeks, John Wright Electrical and Mechanical Services Ltd were one of the only British companies who could respond so quickly to such a large task.

We helped provide power to the whole site, handling the electrical mains distribution for each building throughout the replacement school. We installed general power across the whole site, including complete lighting and fire alarm solutions. Different areas of the school had their own bespoke electrical requirements, like the science laboratories, kitchen and dining hall areas. We also installed data cabling to the IT department. Ensuring the temporary replacement school was functionally identical to Kensington Aldridge Academy was vital to ensure the students had a familiar learning environment. Time was also of the essence, with a tight turnaround of 9 weeks for the complete project. Read more about the Project on our Case Study.

At John Wright, we take great pride in delivering a quick turnover with all our projects without sacrificing the end result or quality of work. Our work in London at Kensington Aldridge Academy is a great example of this, where we worked with limited time constraints to complete works in time for students to occupy the replacement school in September.
