Breckland Council in Norfolk is continuing its refurbishment plans at its base in Elizabeth House, within an industrial park in Dereham.
While the council’s latest efforts have seen a new floor fitted at the headquarters, along with options for staff to work with greater agility, the plans have already seen a wide range of electrical upgrades.
Originally constructed in Dereham back in 2003, the council base has required many modernisations to bring it up to the current standard. The plans, which were initially suggested in 2019, have seen a number of improvements put into place this year.
Both the office’s electrical and mechanical systems have been updated, including an underfloor power supply, dedicated air conditioning, work on fire alarms and all-new energy saving LED lighting, among other works.
Commercial and industrial enterprises seeking electrical services in Chester, Norfolk and other parts of the UK can rely on certified electricians for advice and assistance. Qualified electrical contractors can conduct comprehensive energy audits that display the potential advantages of adopting modern solutions like LED lighting, which include cost savings and environmental benefits.
The most recent work taking place at the council building has been to adapt the office spaces for a different approach to working based on operations amidst the pandemic.
New furniture and partitions have been added to create different areas designed for various styles of working and specific tasks. Council team members can now select between operating in the ‘collaboration zone’ or the ‘quiet zone’, as required.
