Aircraft Warning Lights
Project Skills Solutions has a wide range of experience delivering bespoke and specialist electrical and mechanical services. Recently our engineers were asked to change out two aircraft warning lights on top of a London building 34 storeys high.
London Electrical Light Change
Changing out two aircraft warning lights at the very edge of the roof proved an interesting challenge with excellent views. After an initial survey a full set of RAMS was written up and presented to the client who in-turn presented them to the building management to raise a permit to work.
These were accepted allowing us to plan the works to take place over the weekend as requested by the client.
Electrical Engineers in London
Three of our electrical engineers attended site with all the necessary safety equipment and tooling to carry out the works on a perfect weather day with wind below 2 mph. The safety zone at ground level was set up with perimeter barriers and patrolled for the duration of the works.
The removal of the light fitting first required safe isolation and then measures to prevent any items or tooling going over the side of the building. The change out of the light fitting like for like went smoothly and on completion the isolations were removed and lighting fully tested.

Cecil Jones Academy – Air Conditioning
Cecil Jones Academy is a secondary school and sixth form situated in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, in England. Cecil Jones was the town’s first purpose built Comprehensive School.
Air Conditioning Services
Cecil Jones Academy take great pride in maintaining the very best environment for their pupils to learn. This has required over 180 air conditioning systems to be installed over the years in order to provide cooling through out the academy. In order to ensure that the systems are running at their optimum performance Project Skills Solutions have been awarded the air conditioning maintenance contract for 5 years.
Air Conditioning Maintenance
It is important that air conditioning systems are regularly maintained which involves the thorough cleaning of internal and external units and filters, checking drainage, visual check pipe work and lagging and fully performance test the system in cooling and heating modes and recording temperatures. All maintenance works are scheduled to meet the Academies requirements and to minimise disruption to the students carried out of term times. The regular air conditioning maintenance allows us to pick up any potential failures and take remedial action reducing failures that impact their performance during term time.

New Fibre Link
OSI Systems asked Project Skills Solutions to install a new new 16 core 0m3 fibre link between the ground floor and the 1st floor cabinet.
The link involved fusion splicing 32 new cores onto om3 SC pigtails, once complete the link was OTDR tested with full test results sent to the client.
Project Skills Solutions invest in the latest equipment including a new Fusion Splicer, read more here.
Newham Borough Council
Last year we installed 4 new Paxton door access systems to replace the clients existing system, to improve reliability and functionality.
More recently we were asked to replace an old system which supplied the front door to their IT suite this was all installed and was linked onto their existing data base and new groups & access rights laded.
For more information on our door access services click here.
As the existing maintenance provider for Belfairs school we were asked by Skanska who were the original contractor to carry out some remedial works which had arisen from the original air conditioning installation.
Over Heating Air Handling Unit
There was an issue with hot extract air from a local Air Handling Unit (AHU) and also 7 external AC condensers pushing hot air into the intake area of another AHU this was causing over temperature issue on the AHU.
With Skanska we designed a baffle wall which will deflect the hot air away and prevent temperature issues, in the 1st instance we installed a wooden wall which had a unistrut frame for support. Once this has been in for 2 weeks it will then be assessed and if worked the wood will be replaced with metal as a permanent fixture.

In this case our client had installed some new benches in their warehouse and as a temporary measure had run some extension leads to power their equipment. This was unsafe and was a potential fire risk.
We installed a new dedicated 16mm 5 core swa which terminated onto a new 6 way 3 phase TPN board, this was terminated onto a new 63A mccb into an existing panel board.
Behind the desks we installed new 50mm galvanised trunking with new 25mm kopex links between the desks this provided 2 radial circuits with 8 sockets on each all protected by a 32a RCBO. On completion the clients extension leads were removed and the leads all plugged in and cable managed.
A NICEIC certificate was issued on completion.
Jackson Lifts – Fibre Optic Network
Fibre Optic Network Installation
Project Skills Solutions were engaged to work with a major lift company to install a fibre optic cabling network throughout a major city bank based in London.
The fibre optic network solution had to be designed to run throughout the building to provided visual location status back to a central location for 25 lifts installed in the site. After carrying out a complete site survey we were able to work out routes through out the building for the cable runs between the central control room and each lift motor rooms. The design used OM3 CST fibre cabling to run above existing ceilings and additionally installed trunking to contain the cables where none existed.
At each end of the cables a wall mounted cabinet was installed to house the patch panels, media converters and switches allowing the main contractor to patch through to their monitoring transmission and receiver equipment. The works were required to be phased to meet the lift installation works so our teams of fibre cable pullers and engineers were scheduled to meet the projects timelines. All works were permit controlled by the main client and our team had to have additional security checks carried out before works could commence. Our project support team worked with the end clients security clearance personnel to provide all the necessary evidence to achieve this in the tight project timescales.
Fibre Optic Installation
The installation of fibre cabling requires care and planning as it has to be flaked out to allow the cabling to be pulled without kinking causing micro bends. With over 4 Km to be pulled in a live site this was a task that we carried out successfully and without major disruption to the clients workforce. Once the cabling had been installed the cabinets were installed and the fibre cables dressed and fusion spliced into patch panels. On completion with each fibre link spliced through then the engineers carried out a full OTDR test to ensure the cables works at all wavelengths and produce test results for the handover pack.
The project successfully phased we met all deadlines set by our client efficiently, and the fibre optic cabling project was a success.
