EIC TO LIGHT UP HERTFORDSHIRE'S NEW CHAMBERS
EIC has been awarded a contract, to the value of approximately £360,000, by main contractor, Pettifer Construction, to cover mechanical and electrical design and build work at the new commercial building, Albany Chambers in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire.
The leading mechanical and electrical services specialist is due to start work in June on the contract, which is due to run until October, and will be responsible for lighting, power, CCTV, lighting protection, heating and ventilation. The three-storey office block will be suitable for subletting to a total of six different parties when work is completed.
The announcement of EIC's involvement follows on from the news released in February that the company has been awarded a £2 million contract by Pettifer, to cover mechanical and electrical installation work at St Georges Tower, the tallest tower block in Leicester.
Nigel Le Marechal, joint managing director of EIC, comments on the company's share of the commercial market: "We've undertaken quite a few office blocks in the last 12 months which represents an upturn in this field when compared to our previous year's activity, when the market seemed to be quite stagnant.
"It's great to continue the relationship with Pettifers. We have a good track record of close working relations with this contractor and the repeat business is a good indicator of the quality of work we are providing. We look forward to further commercial ventures together going forward."
