UNITRUNK SUPPLIES TRUNKING ON BROADWAY SHOPPING CENTRE
Developed on a 10-acre site in the centre of Bradford, the Broadway Shopping Centre is now entering the final stage of construction and is expected to open in Autumn 2015.
The scheme will complete the ‘Connecting the City’ project as part of the city’s urban regeneration programme, rejuvenating Bradford’s existing shopping area and connecting it to the new City Park public space, the law courts and Little Germany/the Cathedral Quarter.
Delivered by Pitt Wilson, the design & build project has been constructed on a fast track programme, with a phased services installation involving small sections of the shopping mall at a time.
Unitrunk supplied its Rapid Installation Systems (RIS) cable ladder and cable basket for the scheme, which has be engineered to provide installation times up to three times faster than conventional cable management systems.
Supplied through YESSS Electrical, Unitrunk cable basket has been installed in a wide variety of widths ranging from 50mm – 400mm for all the small power, data and fire alarm cabling throughout the malls, car park and delivery areas.
The company’s cable ladder system has been installed in sizes ranging from 150mm to 1200mm to accommodate the armoured cabling for the mains distribution as part of the core build programme. Unitrunk custom-manufactured cable ladder in 1200mm widths, along with all compatible bends, tees and risers in response to the specific requirements of the project.
The electrical installation for each shop unit will be carried out by the occupiers.
A spokesman for Westfield comments: “The Broadway Shopping Centre in Bradford will transform the retail landscape of the city centre and make a massive contribution to Bradford’s regeneration goals. As a result it has become a very high profile scheme.
“Getting such a challenging and prestigious project completed on time is critical and Unitrunk’s RIS product range means that the service installation has been delivered within the tight time frame required while offering a robust solution for such a high quality retail environment.”
