AbacusHouse REL Electrical has completed the electrical works for the £11.5m expansion of a secondary school in Essex.

The team installed a new substation, lighting, power, security systems such as CCTV, access controls and solar panels on the roof.

Appointed by Kershaw Mechanical Services, REL also helped to refurbish an existing science block and ICT suites, implementing electrical services that has turned them into classrooms and food technology rooms.

Toby Buckley, managing director at REL said: "We were on site for just under a year, delivering the full spectrum of electrical services to ensure that the new building was ready in time for the 2017 school year and to welcome new and existing students."
