A potentially explosive upgrade

During January 2021 we were proud to support Waitrose & Partners’ upgrade of their distribution centre in Brinklow as they replaced their delivery lorries from diesel-powered to the greener, more energy efficient but potentially explosive methane.

This challenging project involved KBS working with main contractor Woodward & Co to a specification produced by Synergy Building Services. During a four week period we collaborated on the install and commissioning of a system designed to shut down all power to the building and initiate extractor fans and an accompanying siren should gas be detected. The project was successfully completed on budget and on time.
