Electrical Installation at a Dementia Respite Centre

Sector: Health & Police Authorities

Services: Electrical Installation • LED

Address: Harmony House, Pattens Lane, Rochester, Kent

Oakleaf Electrical were successful at tender stage and were awarded the contract to undertake the full electrical installation at Harmony House.

Harmony House is a new Medway Community Healthcare dementia respite centre in Rochester, Kent. We needed to take a dynamic approach to the installation as Dementia patients can be affected by certain environments, in our case wall lighting.

Halfway through the project, each of the 20 bedrooms were re-designed to provide ceiling mounted self-dimming Thorlux lighting, we were able to implement these changes and still meet the tight project programme.

Working closely with the main contractor, Perfect Homes, we carried out the following:

  • Installation of new panel board and subsequent distribution boards, throughout the building, including associated sub main cabling
  • Installation of Thorlux LED lighting throughout, including staff areas, corridors and bedrooms, as well as externally
  • Installation of socket outlets and fused spurs throughout the building
  • Installation of power supplies to service specialist systems (fire alarm, intruder alarm and nurse call systems)
  • Full testing and commissioning of all supplied services and provide NICEIC certification

We recently worked with Oakleaf Electrical at Harmony House, a new Medway Community Healthcare dementia respite centre in Rochester. Despite part of the project being redesigned during the works, Oakleaf not only provided timely and reasonably costed variations to the project but implemented the additional work within the original timeframe. Their work is accurate and neatly laid out and can be relied upon to be compliant with relevant standards due to their well trained workforce. We have a very good relationship with Oakleaf Electrical and they have become our preferred electrical subcontractor for other projects. We would not hesitate to recommend them.
