Overview

Easy Bathrooms announces a £5m move to a 330,000 sq. ft. purpose-built Headquarters and distribution hub, preparing for the recruitment of 500 new jobs.

Whilst retaining its current 125,000 sq. ft. HQ in Birstall, Easy Bathrooms has invested £5m in the new facility. Alongside its 92 showrooms across the UK, the new development means its physical footprint will exceed 1 million sq. ft. The expansion will also pave the way for the creation of 100-150 new jobs at the head office over the next two years, along with 373 new staff to be employed throughout the UK at new showrooms. Already employing 580 people, it will make Easy Bathrooms the largest employer within the UK bathroom market.

Challenge

There were some existing electricity supplies crossing the site which required diversions. Due to Easy Bathrooms’ rapid expansion, they needed to move into the building as soon as possible so HVSS needed to help facilitate this by ensuring that the incoming utility supplies were installed in a timely manner.

Solution

HVSS were appointed by Winvic Construction to install the incoming electricity, gas and water supplies to serve the new development.  

HVSS installed a 1500kVA boundary substation housed in a GRP enclosure. The low voltage supply to the building 90m away was then provided by a bunched waveform cable arrangement terminating at a 2500 amp Link Panel.
