WORKING on behalf of the Malcolm Group, Arc-Tech (Scotland) Ltd is set to deliver a range of electrical service upgrades for a bonded warehouse for their Logistics division in Glenrothes.
The Malcolm Group has become one of the leading providers of Logistics, Construction and Maintenance services in the UK with Malcolm Construction, as the Main Contractor, leading works at the Glenrothes facility.
Malcolm Construction services all areas of the construction industry including Civil Engineering & Groundworks, Waste Management, Landfill, Recycling, Quarrying & Aggregate Supply, Plant Hire, Tipper & Skip Hire and Sports Surfaces. The works comprise of the adaption of an existing open plan warehouse facility, which is being modified to provided storage of whisky casks for the purpose of maturation for Diageo. This requires 3 large areas to be divided into 12 smaller cells to provide fire compartmentation whilst also adhering to the required ATEX regulations for explosive atmospheres as a result of the ethanol produced by the maturing whiskey whilst the casks are in storage.
Arc-Tech has been employed to install the electrical infrastructure throughout the premises which consists of new high-level containment, cabling, high bay LED lighting, an emergency lighting central battery system, lightning protection and Fire Alarm incorporating Aspirating Smoke Detection.
John Gallacher, managing director of Arc-Tech said: “We have worked with the Malcolm Group on a previous bonded warehouse for Diageo in Grangemouth, therefore we are very well accustomed to how they operate. A specialist ATEX environment such as this warehouse will require all works to be completed to an exacting standard by our CompEx trained engineers. We are confident that the project will be delivered to the highest standards of quality expected by Diageo, the Malcom Group and ourselves. We look forward to working with the Malcolm Group as the contract progresses.”< back
