Case Study: Commercial

Completed: September 2021

Client: H Cumberirch & Son

Sector: Commercial Wholesale

Services Used

New staff changing rooms and kitchenette installation.


Hexstone Ltd is a fastener and fixings company located in Stone, Staffordshire, which operates from its large purpose-built warehouse.

Hexstone wished to improve staff welfare facilities, and the project required the installation of two changing rooms on the first floor and a kitchenette breakfast area on the ground floor. We were employed as M&E sub-contractors.

Contract Arrangements:

Cumberbirch awarded us the contract based on price and our skill-sets. We maintained good communication with the warehouse and site managers throughout the project to ensure our work was carried out safely. All of our operatives were in possession of CSCS cards. All RAMS were in place and signed off before work commenced.

Project Challenges:

Our team completed tasks within a working warehouse area, including height-access work. In addition, forklift trucks were in operation, so coordination and safety were paramount. The client brief was fulfilled by a very detailed design by ECS consultants.

During our installation, it was necessary to reposition the air conditioning condenser. It also became apparent that extra fire dampers were needed due to the ventilation ductwork passing through firewalls.

        • Lighting
        • Controls
        • Mains distribution
