Access Control Maintenance Services

Project Skills Solutions have had a service level agreement with Teamq since 2011. This has required the provision of a range of electrical and mechanical installation and maintenance services throughout the Southeast of England. Working with their project team on refurbishment projects ranging from complete refits to technology upgrades for office and transport establishments we have successfully completed all projects.ccess Control System Repairs and Maintenance support services.

Access Control Maintenance & Repair Services

Our support desk is required to co-ordinate and provides reactive callouts and planned maintenance across their diverse property portfolios. We are required to provide adhoc repair and planned maintenance for electrical, data cabling CCTV and access control services in Essex, London, Home Counties. This requires our engineers to work on a wide range of access control system brands for conventional hard wired to IP based systems.Based in Essex we are conveniently located to service site’s based in London and surrounding areas. We have engineers in the city daily and can get to site and perform maintenance quickly and effectively.

Our services to date have been required to attend sites for emergency repairs and planned maintenance requiring faultfinding and fault location of Maglocks, cabling , controllers, break glass buttons, cabling and electrical system failures. These are all typical fault types that our engineers deal with while attending sites.

We can also provide remote access maintenance services to Paxton IP based systems such as Paxton Net2 systems that often results in issues being rectified without engineer attendance.


Crusely Trailers Engineering

Project Skills Solutions completed over a year long project at Crusely Trailer Engineering in January 2015. Crusely Trailers were moving to a new site and were building a purpose built yard to meet their exact requirements. The client wanted to use one contractor for all of the electrical and mechanical works, so came to Project Skills Solutions.

As this was a complete new build we installed all of the mechanical, electrical wiring and plant. Our engineers installed the;

We installed the lighting throughout the warehouse, offices and all the external lighting across the site. In the warehouse the lighting which we installed was low energy high bay light fittings. We installed low energy T5 non corrosive fittings throughout the store rooms and low energy T5 grid lighting throughout the office. We installed full emergency lighting throughout the building. We installed low energy lighting throughout as this is the most cost effective way for the client to light the building.

We installed nine CCTV cameras across the site, in the office building (hallways), warehouse and externally. The cameras have been set up for remote monitoring so that the live feed can be accessed anywhere on a smart phone or tablet as long as they have an internet connection. Entry and exit barriers were fitted so that lorries have to gain access and can’t just drive on site. There is a call point on the entry gate so that drivers can call the office and then the office staff know exactly who is coming onto the site. All staff have proximity cards so they can easily gain access and don’t need to call the office to be let on site. A fibre optic cable had to be installed because the front camera is more than 90 metres from the server room which exceeds the distance for copper cabling.

The client had specialist requirements for the power distribution for the lorry bays. Crusely needed each lorry bay to have its own distribution panel with outlets so if one bay lost power it would not affect any other bays. Panels were manufactured specific to the clients needs. We installed a 250 amp buzz bar for power distribution for the 12 lorry bays and the front machine workshop.

Air conditioning was installed through the offices, canteen and meetings rooms. There was a mixture of ceiling and wall mounted cassettes, multiple units split across three systems. A fire alarm system was also fully installed by PSS. We installed manual call points through the workshop, then smoke and heat detectors throughout the offices.

This project from the initial quote through to completion was over a year and in excess of £220,000.

Project Skills Solutions were pleased to have been awarded the major project to refit all electrical services and lighting for’s new warehouse in Essex. The client required extremely tight timelines over the Christmas period, our Project Managers and Engineers worked hard to meet this deadline which we achieved and our client was pleased with the project.

Project Outline

The client was taking over occupation of a 160,000 sq-ft warehouse building that had laid empty for well over a decade.Initially this project was surveyed in January 2013 with the client which found over 85% of the existing light and electrical circuits to be non working and in need of complete refit. It took 11 months to get the green light but we had to get the initial team on site within 5 days. The project began with a full lighting design and cost evaluation comparing conventional and LED lighting options, long term running costs of the facility played a big part in the clients decision to go for LED lighting (100 watt LED Cob bulbs). Even with the higher initial purchase price the energy efficient lighting will save our client money in the long run. The products selected weren’t off the shelf so the suppliers had to step up to the challenge and get them manufactured so as not to stall our works.

Electrical Lighting

Our design required the rewire of the complete warehouse lighting circuits requiring over 25,000 mtrs of 2.5mm lsf singles to be installed into the existing galvanised trunking throughout the warehouse. The warehouse had three sections which required 450 LED lights to be installed and 200 emergency lights the lights were cabled into sections. As the areas had varying levels of occupation lighting circuits were wired with PIR detectors to turn on/off lighting automatically providing further cost savings.The electrical distribution boards were obsolete so these were also replaced with new boards at new locations to best suit the new power requirements. This required new SWA cables to be run in between the building main incoming power and the 4 new panel boards and 10 new distribution boards. The onsite team required to carry out the works was formed with 6 electricians and two electrical improver/mates all were required to have IPAF qualifications as the lighting installation was at over 6 mtrs height requiring all works to be carried out using sizzor lifts.The onsite works were supported with the office project support team and the installation manager. On completion our electrical engineers carried out electrical testing and certification to be included in the handover documentation.

Deadline Met

Our client faced a major operational site move and it was critical that we met their deadline, we met the first deadline with a few days to spare but this wasn’t the end of the project. Once we had finished the loading bay, we had to complete 50% of the goods inwards area to get our client operational.

  • LED Lighting
  • Sensors
  • Emergency Lighting
  • Distribution Boards

Multi Service Project

After meeting our clients deadlines and exceeding their expectations we were awarding fibre optic backbone, data network, CCTV and WiFi cabling projects, with tight deadlines as before.
