Hawse End Bunkhouse

Location: Keswick Client Name: Cumbria Council Duration: 20 Weeks

Project Details:

Electrical refurbishment package at Hawes Cottage which is situated on the shores of stunning Derwentwater, at the head of the Borrowdale Valley, this is a stone built cottage. The cottage is situated at the foot of Catbells and is only 80 meters from the shoreline of the lake. Located in a very remote area it offers some of the best views you could ask for.

Our scope was to remove all of the existing cabling for all of the services, relocate and increase the electrical distribution capacity and carry out a full electrical installation.

Project Scope:

The layout of the building covering several levels and is constructed from incredibly tough Lakeland stone it was not going to be a easy job. DJH’s scope consisted of the electrical refurbishment package which entailed relocating the distribution board and the primary inbound supplies. This provided circuits for the lights inside & out, ring main, kitchen area, heating units, fire alarm, CCTV and the emergency lighting system.

The heating scope was to remove the existing heating system and upgrade to a Dimplex Quantum storage heating. As a Dimplex partner we had the ability to supply an extended warranty.

The life safety systems incorporated the fire alarm and emergency lighting. The fire alarm installed was a Fireclass addressable system. As a registered integrator it gave DJH access to the latest products and software. Our trained engineers completed the full system from first fix through to commissioning.

The emergency lighting scope was to install a Hostwave Logica 24 intelligent central battery system. The emergency lights where installed as individual units that communicated to the central battery unit. Each light signals its status as well as allowing for automatic testing and reports to be generated to the client.
