Farnham Electrical Switchgear Upgrade



In 2019, we were approached by Waitrose & Partners to upgrade the electrical switchgear for their store in Farnham. Waitrose acquired this store in 2004 which formerly used to be a safe way; however, an upgrade was long due as it had not been done since the purchase of this store. The client appointed us to carry out a survey with the intention of upgrading all the electrical distribution equipment within the store. This project was a 7-week long programme and we were proud to be the sole contractor for it.



This project came with its own set of challenges. However, our team of project managers, supervisors and electricians were pro-active, dedicated and understanding of our clients’ requirements. Therefore, even being extremely tight on space, we were able to successfully install and upgrade the electrical switchgear.  Our works included a fully designed and bespoke main LV Switch panel and distribution systems, containment, small power, testing, and commission.



KBS completed this difficult and high-profile project on time and within the allocated budget, with no disruptions to the program and no impact to store operations. The successful delivery of this project led to us receiving great feedback from our client as we continue to work on multiple other projects for them.
