P4 – St. Marychurch Substation


Project: New Switch House Building & Compound Area
Location: St. Marychurch Substation, Torquay
Client: Western Power Distribution
Role: Principal Contractor
Duration: 12 weeks

Grant Construction was engaged by Western Power Distribution to construct a new, traditional, switch house building within a walled compound, in an urban area, adjacent to a busy road. The work was completed during the winter but despite the adverse weather conditions, was still delivered within the allotted timescale.

Additional work included a pocket substation base and above ground earthing.

Particular care was necessary when forming the substructure adjacent high boundary walls.
