Set up in 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood, the grandfather of naturalist Charles Darwin, the 256-year-old Wedgwood Company, in Staffordshire, is one of the oldest in the world. When it came to refurbishing and developing the £34m World of Wedgwood Attraction, products from across Scolmore Group’s wiring accessories range were specified for installation.
This extensive project included the refurbishment of the existing building, creating new manufacturing facilities, offices and catering facilities, as well as new builds that included the Wedgwood experience Tea room, Kitchens and a new extension to the museum. Products from the Mode, MiniGrid and Metalclad ranges were selected for installation throughout and included switched socket outlets, fused spur connection units, along with switches and dimmer switches and a host of wiring accessories products.
Mode is a stylish, contemporary and flexible range of smooth profile wiring accessories. The modular design of MODE allows designers and installers unprecedented flexibility in creating dedicated wiring solutions to deal with specific wiring needs. The MiniGrid range of interchangeable plates and switches allows for simple, single screw installation of the modules on the mounting plates and has encouraged contractors to devise and install customised switching solutions on site. The comprehensive selection of metal clad accessories are eletrophoretically coated plates and back boxes to provide a durable and long lasting heavy duty finish.
Senior Project Manager, Graham Collins, of Imtech ES Central, was responsible for installing Scolmore’s wiring accessory products for this project and had this to say: “We have found Scolmore a reliable and cost effective solution to both the needs of Wedgwood and Royal Dolton. The ease of installation that their products offer, is a highly valuable benefit to our Electricians.”
