Wieland Electric’s popular Metalynx2 modular wiring system has been installed within office space at 122 Leadenhall Street, London, a building more informally known as “The Cheesegrater” because of its distinctive wedge shape construction.
Designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, the Cheesegrater building is in the heart of the City of London financial district and has been awarded an ‘excellent’ BREEAM rating with 45 floors of office space constructed to a CAT A fit-out. Wieland’s Metalynx2 system was specified and installed by mechanical and electrical contractors PhoenixME Limited who chose Wieland’s new generation in modular wiring to connect power and lighting MDBs which in turn feed LCM’s and fan coil units within the office space.
With structured wiring now the preferred choice for fast track installations, the Metalynx2 system offers contractors a quicker and more efficient system for connecting power and lighting control schemes. The Metalynx2 system arrives on-site pre-wired and pre-tested for quick installation and for infinite design flexibility can be easily configured to adapt to any future system changes.
Simon Collingbourne, Operations Director at PhoenixME Limited commented “The system was robust and defined. Wieland provided service from conception to installation and provided drawings fully detailed and this converted to an order very quickly.
The delivery programme was agreed and adhered to allow us to install efficiently. The product was easy to install and also offered the flexibility to relocate based on the inevitable changes encountered on site. Overall a good product which does seem to lead the way over others”.
