Intersafe Continues To Perform Fixed Wire Testing at The University of Brighton

The University of Brighton has one of the best teaching quality ratings in the UK and a strong research record.

With a community of over 23,000 students and 2,600 staff based on five campuses in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings, The University of Brighton is a thriving community as well as a place of learning and research.

With a strong emphasis on safety of staff, students and visitors, the University is naturally keen to ensure that all electrical testing is completed thoroughly and to a high standard.

Intersafe now conducts the Fixed Wire testing across the University campuses every year since winning a competitive four-way pitch in 2011.

The University’s Electrical Services Engineer, said:

We had heard of Intersafe some time before and were very impressed with what we heard when they came to visit us. As the time came to choose companies to tender for our fixed wire testing and inspection, it was an obvious choice to invite Intersafe to compete for the work. The prices put forward were competitive and, added to the strong track record Intersafe had demonstrated in the past, it was a winning combination.”

Intersafe visited the University for an initial consultation, which enabled Intersafe to fully assess the scope of work, put together a suitable testing plan and provide an accurate quote. Typically this plan involves a large amount of out-of-hours or out-of-term testing to ensure minimum disruption.

The University’s Electrical Services Engineer added:

“It was reassuring to be able to walk around the site together and look at the buildings to be tested. I was very impressed – particularly with the way Intersafe took the time to evaluate what disruption might be caused and what solutions could be put in place to minimise that disruption. The company also provided us with a dedicated engineer, who would be on site at all times to ensure the work went smoothly and act as our main point of contact. That was very helpful.

“We often hire university rooms and buildings to companies and organisations so even during the holidays, the site is buzzing with activity. It was great that Intersafe was able to work unusual hours to accommodate this.

“The full report and drawings that were provided to us after the work was carried out are very thorough and form a vital part of our health and safety documentation here.

“I would certainly recommend Intersafe to anyone looking to carry out fixed wire inspection and testing.”
